A Telegram of Love


A telegram of love was sent
through the cloudy ways to the sea
rushed in the breezy rain
as the sun set out to leave
to let unwind the reins
while carving the blue melody
my pen was slightly bent
a midst the vapors of tea
reminding of those moments
i lost my thread to be
for all the years spent
in finding the golden key
the maze the trap the vent
crushed was i beneath
the clouds hath to lend
for all that earth received
confusing me till the end
not letting the verse complete
helpless not to pretend
the rain had me deceived

    A most strange poem as you have written as it is but even more remarkable if you read the first line first
    then read the last then read the second and then the line next to last and so on untill you meet in the middle. (Report) Reply

It kindles all the sunset land:
