A Meaningless Move


Ring of words, makes a sentence
This is the desire of vowels and consonants

When sentences became alphabet
There is abhorrence and cry
That spit on the human fate

Today's mechanical families are the same
There is difference between house and home

Home is one that keepeth the light

Cosmopolitan nature of human kind has destroyed,
Made a house without roof.

Sentences moved towards the alphabet
Annihilation
....A meaningless move

    A different look and tried logically to establish a meaning. Move is not meaningless. And we can stretch alphabet to separate letter and letters to diminish its picturisqe value to unseen sound and we can also move to infinity. The highest reach of our existence. (Report) Reply

    true indeed, May Allah preserved our home and keep away a house without roof. and we also must strive to keep the light in our home through a true meaning of 'tawakkal' that is work hard and du'a in and out from solah. indeed there are very wide perspective of this poem - I like to appreciate it in this way. shukriyaa :) (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
