>>>Love - a nest of a bird and a bug


Inside the nest of love
Two chambers tucked together
Side by side allowed to live
Two opposite creatures
In one, a bird of delight
And a bug on the other

On its golden wings
The bird takes a soaring flight
After meeting the fancy stars
Brings some azure delight
For lovers on her diamond beak

On the other hand
Nowhere goes the bug
Sits tight at the corner of its camber
And waits covertly to suck blood

But lovers never know
Whether they are bitten by the bug
As they remain under its strong anaesthesia
Till enough blood is left in their heart.


In some rare cases
The nest morphed into a bud
Instead of blood
With the rays of purity
A few drops of dew is needed
To make it bloom
Into a flower
And it's anybody’s guess
How great is the grace
Of love!

    Another 'WOW! ' poem for me, Abdul. Your mind is truly unique and I adore this exquisite poem, which highlights how two different species can cohabit, for different reasons, unaware of the others' existence, happy in their own way. Superb use of metaphor and the visual detail is excellent. The final stanza in the poem brings the whole poem together for me. I particularly love the lines 'And it's anybody’s guess
    How great is the grace
    Of love'
    You know, we don't ever fully realise how great the grace of love is or how very blessed we are to have it, until we are without it and then, it hits hard... Outstanding write, dear Abdul. Thank you for kindly sharing. Blessings always... (Report) Reply

    Wow a sublime unique poem on love.
    Mayb its mortal to b bitten by a lovebug but its immoral n bad to build a lovenest, if u go by its dictionary meaning. So dis poem fascinating in metaphor. Thanx for yor reviews too. (Report) Reply

Farewell love and all thy laws forever;
Thy baited hooks shall tangle me no more.
Senec and Plato call me from thy lore
To perfect wealth, my wit for to endeavour.
