Twin Triplets.No.15


A centipede, surreptitiously crawling
With a hundred legs, listlessly crawling….crawling
Until from a covert hide out, it suddenly stings


If you rail relentless
Seeing others thrive prosperous
It is jealousy, doubtless!

    Suspicion and Jealousy wonderfully explained crisply!

    Just like the centipede stings so does jealousy. They both have a
    lot in common with each other. A sting will soon disappear if it is
    not poisoned. Jealousy will hurt and can eventually cripple the person
    to whom it is directed toward if they allow it. Looks can be deceiving
    Madam Valsa. Love this one.

    Suspicion and jealousy are sources of despair and unhappiness. You tackled them nicely in your twin triplets.

  • Danny Draper (8/10/2013 8:14:00 PM)

    Terrific and especially the precise language and accuracy of the second verse, brilliant economical language.

    Beautiful Triplets. Everything a part of life. Loved reading the way it is presented.

  • Dinesh Nair (8/9/2013 8:58:00 AM)

    But we can`t often escape from these.... I have suspected people and things and have once or twice felt jealous of things silly indeed. Thank you Madam Valsa for sharing these triplets.

    Frank opinion openly said in few words.

  • Pradip Chattopadhyay (8/9/2013 6:49:00 AM)

    saying so much, Valsa, in so few words!

    comments by Thomas is surely an icing on the cake.

  • Thomas A Robinson (8/9/2013 4:31:00 AM)

    Very good with so much to say in a tiny bay.
