Y/ Standing Low

The most beautiful appearance
of the moon is early at night
when it stands low in the sky
A big pinkish orangey ball

The most beautiful appearance
Of the sun is at twilight
When it stands low
Just above the horizon

How about us?

Poet's Notes about The Poem

The higher we rise, the bigger our angle of view,
the higher we rise, the brighter we may shine

But don't our most beatuiful colours show
...if we step down
and LOOK UP from a low position
to the others no matter who they are,
no matter what they do?

...if we stoop down
to reach out a helping hand
to the others no matter who they are
no matter what they do?

    So true, so many people get left behind for all the wrong reasons we all have so much to give, to reach out to help is a sign of true greatness for all the right reasons! ! Beautiful write! (Report) Reply

    When we see through the inner light...the beauty of what we see, shows the best! Often, a blind man sees, and the normal eyes are blinded....that is the wisdom of this world! Really nice poem...! A 10++ (Report) Reply

    I guess we are at our best symbolically at noon when the sun (our inner self) shines brightest - great write. (Report) Reply

    Stunning! loved it...i loved moon at early night too but still like it till it hiding after dawn...about your question how about ourselves? ? i guess we will give the best when we keep shining the hope like there is an early night from the moon but still also shining bright to like the sun to end the day with the bright heart as we can...Standing low is great because we are having low profile but high attitudes, down to earth but high vision above_Soul (Report) Reply
