A Sobering Thought

You really want to touch, you say.
Nay, don't take my breath away.
For breath is life, and must be breathe,
To sober think, and warnings heed.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Caution, especially for those who would like something better than a quick fling, or a one-night stand, and those who have chosen to wait.

    A sobering thought indeed my friend.

    Thank you, Khairul. I really enjoy short verse too. When I see a long, long poem, I just loose interest in reading. Maybe it's because I do so much and have so little time :)

    'Waiting is a virtue that is cultivated, '...Very true!
    Just four lines, but carries so much weight and wisdom!
    Stunned by the beauty of this short poem.

    Thank you Patricia! Waiting is a virtue that is cultivated, don't you think?

    We all like to do things quickly or at the blink of an eye. It
    is better to wait sometimes because good things comes
    to those who wait. A sobering thought indeed.

    don't we all want to capture a butterfly, hold its beauty in our hands..... but butterflies are fragile, break easily and breathe earth's air for just one day so better still to watch while they fly ;)

    What a great comment! Thanks so much. Bluntness sometimes gets the point across a lot faster, don't you think, lol? Sometimes meandering loses people.

    Bluntly honest and pure thoughtful wisdom.
