Treasure Island

Ali Adamson


Difference!


Vast as ocean, apart as grains
I could remember...
no songs of love,
no voice of hate
So... warm during day
and... cool in night
... you stretched your arm initiating a relation! ! !
in the next moment...
I slipped off your hand...
When I was SAND!

..........

My tired soul
and endless journey
unbearable distance... it is my love!
If this is my life!
I am to die...
split up myself... pieces into pieces
approaching my love
with countless kisses
bleeding fast, screaming loud...
When I am CLOUD!

    Sand slips and cloud breaks up and disperses. Let me be something different to approach love. Nice imagination. Thank you. (Report) Reply

    Sand and cloud...The symbols are carefully chosen. Good. I liked it. At your age, love poems are natural for you. 'Cool in the night'. Kindly re-write as 'Cool at night'. This is what my teacher says from the corner of my mind! . Thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply

    The journey taking heat up to the clouds from the Ocean beds reminds of our ageless birth and rebirths taking the karmic fruits again and again born to be refined and purified to realised the universal truth of god, whatever be his name. (Report) Reply
