Valsa George


Five Liners.3,4 (Rolling Wheels/ Change) Poem by Valsa George


ROLLING WHEELS

Ancestors depart, leaving no heirlooms to keep
Years flip by with all dreams stashed away
Sun sets casting dark shadows behind
Body weakens corroding vitality and drive
But mind, like a young girl, steams with longings!


CHANGE

A scarecrow smiles, an infant sneers
A lion bleats, a lamb growls
Thieves chase the police, peahens strut feathers n’ dance
In sync with the times,
Everything has changed!

    Wheel of time never stops like a long distant drive during which landscape is changing after every few miles. Thoughtful poems. (Report) Reply

    Time rolls resulting in change. Body weakens and mind is ever stronger. Change seems to be reversal of what we normally see. Beautifully rendered. (Report) Reply

    You are quite right Asadullah! I am so happy that you have rightly linked the two poems. Though they are independant poems, there is a link. As the wheels of Time roll by, change happens! Thanks! (Report) Reply

    @ title: 3,4 numbers are what i did not get at, it might be the sequel of some 1,2 which i have missed reading perhaps...though the title is clear...
    @ the poem: the vision of the longing mind is experiencing something really different in the 2nd part CHANGE...! ! ! (Report) Reply
