Embrace The Beauty


we speak of the splendor of the flowers when they wither
in spring there are too many of them for us to praise
a day when the sun shall seize to shine
we will speak of its warm tender rays

we might learn to live, with no sun overhead
and make own our sun, that gives its flame
the things would change, in time to come
our hearts no longer would beat the same

no singing birds, might then be heard
all mountains tall, might one day fall
the flowing rivers, one day would dry
our gleeful heart someday would sigh

embrace the seas, the blowing wind
embrace the birds that gaily sing
embrace the glory of the rising sun
things might change in time to come

    Pat Northall.

    A wonderfully written poem, embracing all natures gifts given to us... but
    such a tender, but urgent wake up call to cherish, and love, for very soon
    they could disappear without our trace. How cold a place our life would be
    without them.
    I wish I could write so well. Thank you. (Report) Reply

    Embrace this glorious universe, before it might be to late. An uplifting, inspired beauty of a poem
    The ending is tremendous and maybe symbolic of things to come-a great write 10 (Report) Reply

    Well written... touché, Sir! ... well written indeed! ... too often we fail to appreciate the finer things of life when they surround us... and then they vanish with only memories remaining. (Report) Reply

    Now if we fail to enjoy what is before our eyes, we might be deprived of them in future! There is no guarentee that those beautiful and useful things would be there tomorrow! So enjoy life when we can! Very meaningful, Kanav (Report) Reply

    Amazing write Kanav.... Beautiful lines......
    we might learn to live, with no sun overhead
    and make own our sun, that gives its flame.... Humorous lines, but they mean a lot....
    Very true said, We create our own moon, sun, anger, pain and everything.
    We wait for everything to wither away then we will start repainting it especially when we feel.
    Very true said, we don't embrace the beauty that comes in our way......We wait for next season to enjoy, and forget to enjoy with what we are going with...In all sense it means to enjoy with whats going on...
    Really Loved reading this thoughtful poem.... (Report) Reply

    .............a poem so beautifully written with a touch of melancholy...i feel this sad feeling in my heart and soul.....especially when i think of the day when the sun will not rise and shine so beautifully and warm me so nicely.....i know on this sad day i feel i will cry...i love to see the sun in the big blue sky, even with those big fluffy white clouds...on these kinds of days...i love to go outside and hear the birds singing like they are singing only for me...and my day feels almost perfect on these days....even more so when i receive a message from my favourite poet in the whole big wide world.....these are my feelings....and you know I LOVE THIS POEM even with the touch of sadness, ...cause it comes from your HEART....so beautiful kanav :) (Report) Reply
