And Then...

And then,

A silkworm cocooned and marooned on a leaf, 
Would know of its power with which to weave,
Silk that would last more than a century,
Silk to change grotesque into pretty.

And then,

A butterfly flapping its large wings vibrant,
Hurriedly pursuing nectar and scents,
Would know of the power encased in its form,
The power to unleash a mighty storm.

And then, 

A man caught unaware in the grind,
Burning within with a will to drive - 
Darkness out and light a candle, 
Would know of the power with which to handle
The desire to change the world as we know,
Into a land where virtues flow. 


And then, it glowed!


Naive in thought, and usage of words, the above poem had to make it here because it was the first time I composed something during an exam! Yes, so, a souvenir from there.

  2. How do you do it? Am awed!! With your words you give life to poetry!


    The letters
    laid in conundrums
    hatch;
    as your words
    scatter worlds
    on sublime
    pillars of emotions.

    Dreams surface
    from curbed desires;
    a life emerges
    from chrysalis..

    The folds
    unfold
    into
    a colorful
    vivid,
    that flutters;
    then flies
    into the
    whims and fancies
    of what we call -
    Life.
