Treasure Island

Averting...


Chisel the hearts with soft stroke,
As it is not hard as the stones and the rocks,
All the hearts are carved with sharp knives,
Of experience to face the future prepared,
The molded hearts are there, easily bruised,
With the yielding of the words of swords,
The molten planning poured into millions of molds,
All think the same; all are hurt with blames,
Flames of fury erupts to torch and tame,
Heart sculptured of stones, beaten for many times,
Stand erect under the fair and fiery weathers,
Not interested to wrestle with glass hearts,
For the fear of breaking it into thousands,
Of weeping pieces, it always moves away with a swift movement,
Either way, the hearts of glass are always at the risk.

    Many kinds of Hearts here Veeraiyah. Stone, glass, molded, carved but were are the wooden hearts.
    The hearts grown in the forests, harvested and lumbered and then shaped by craftsmen into beautiful
    pieces of art. Hearts that are not cold to the touch as glass, stone, and molded hearts.These hearts can be damaged by abuse but hold up strong. They can be splintered but only after a valorous resistance. Hearts of wood may be plain and simple but will always be true to form. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
