What you have is beautiful

Filed under: Poetry — Teal @ 7:05 pm

What is to be made of
a gloomy afternoon; the sun
scorching all in sight
tanning all, or tanning none?

what is to be made of the dew
when it kisses the flowers
at twilight, when the world awakes
alas! those who appreciate this are few

What is to be made of conversation?
With long lost friends from afar
When you recall all that you spoke
Amidst deathly silence, devoid of jokes

What you have at this moment is beautiful
The joys measured and unmeasured, wonderful
But we never know until it’s too late
Only when we are left burning at our stakes

What is to be made of the rainbow?
So perfect in shape, so divine
Spreading across the horizon in the sky
bringing a smile when it catches your eye

For now I’ve begun to wonder, is it too late
Have I forgotten to taste mirth?
Will I ever experience all of this again ?
In this life, or in my next birth?

What you have at this moment is beautiful
The joys measured and unmeasured, wonderful
But we never know until it’s too late
Only when we are left burning at our stakes..

  7. Its great. Simply amazing, if a little dark.
    Very very proud of you.

    Just one thought. Be happy and write cheerful poems…You are the sunshine, I am the rain; remember?
    moping is my speciality.

    BTW is the para on the rainbow, a tribute to me? 😉 [I’d like to think so…]

  8. very beautiful like the morning dews on the greens of a spring while the feet feel the chill and freshness while on bare foot to pluck the early morning flowers with lips humming a devotional song.
