Treasure Island

Abdul Wahab


>>>Joy Of Unfastening


Inside the skull
Tenderly kept a bud
Petals are held together tight
Containing all the beauty
The driving force of the world
Like that of fingers in strength
Clinched into a fist

The fist looses its fingers
In love and in kindness
And falls flat to turn
To dissolve into a palm
Like that of the bud
Unfasten the tight by the petals
In rain, in light
To bloom into a flower

A huge release- -
A great revelation- -
A freedom gained
A relief from pain
A beauty
The real delight of the heart is born

The flower drops its petals
In freedom, in relief
But gets wings of reason and logic
To turn, to transform
Into a baby -bird
Like that of a moth
Morphed into a butterfly
In ecstasy, in joy
Test its power of knowledge
In its first flight.

    Clinched into a fist....use clenched; clinched is something else. typo perhaps?

    i wish i understood this better. perhaps a lot of my trouble is that (i assume) english is not the language you are more accustomed to using. and perhaps, as marie mentions (below) . you are using similes....which i may not understand the way you and she seem to. and unlike what she implies in her comment, i see few if any alliterations. if there is ONE of your poems you are REALLY anxious for me to read (you did tell me to read some of your 'popular poems') , please send me the complete title or, better yet, copy and paste it to me in a message. thanks for sharing. :) (Report) Reply

    The joy of unfastening, unfolding, metamorphosis, is so finely expressed in this incredible poem, dear Abdul. The visual detail is breathtakingly beautiful. I love the use of Simile, and Alliteration. The flow of the poem is satin smooth, bringing the reader along with it effortlessly, like an Autumn leaf on a river. I just floated along peacefully as I read and absorbed the beauty of this exquisitely crafted poem. Truly delightful and thought provoking also. Thank you for sharing, Abdul. I have tried to vote on the poems I have read today, but they are not registering, though I don't know why. But, each of yours would get a 50 out of 10 from me! I enjoy your poetic work so much! Blessings always... (Report) Reply

Far south the lift,
