Valsa George


Five Liners.3,4 (Rolling Wheels/ Change)


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!

    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

    Some things change too fast and some things change too slowly. Two enjoyable short poems. (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

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
