Treasure Island

S.D. TIWARI

(December.1955 / India)

Life Is


life is cricket
I bat on the pitch
everyone else in the field
trying to out me

life is road
goes to a destination
that is unknown

life is ape
always dances
jumps from one
to other branches

life is music
sings the melody
of incidents and
stories

life is wheel
it rolls and rolls
until gets the slope

life is a castle
live in and struggle
the instincts
and emotions

life is water
flows in river of time
sometimes smooth
strikes to rocks sometimes

life is web
strangled within
virtual and real
the net knitted

life is clock
which never stops
doing tick tick always
whatever weather comes

life is truth
we have to accept
we have to live
the way it is set

    Life is water
    Flows in river of time
    Sometimes smooth
    Strikes to rocks sometimes.
    Very true, thus, it is said that unpredictability is the spice of life. Life is nicely defined.10+++ (Report) Reply
