Beautiful poem . I think there is a wonderful juxtaposition here. While day is moving or perhaps poet is getting relocated to another place/ position the box still contains rain water which is stagnant. Stagnation leads to breading of mosquitoes and diseases. Change is always welcomed and provides a fresh beginning.

Zooming out to zooming in and which goes to say true about the tearful farewell of all around you whilst farewell and which can never be held in our hands and which speaks about the journey of our lives on earth.

Is this mono no aware?

We don't have any backstory with this poem. Sometimes a poem doesn't need one either.

The poet would like to have you all interpret it in your own ways.
