A Big Joke Is A Laugh


a simple smile, wouldn’t hurt you nor annoyed
your presence, it’s the big laugh that hunt
your being and destroyed your precious moment
with whom you consider the hour of happening

rush to touch the face of smooth but grandeur
facet of life, need not to be same, it’s the surface
of the internal manifestation of what the spirit
move, a lining of everyone’s feeling of the Inner
passion of the heart and soul

thou it brings high, the stone floats to see the very
surface of the ground, wishing all the sky that the
star wouldn’t give up to shine, even if the looming
light witness the darkest night

hail on the rough sweet words that kill a tail, yet
a blooming flower rotten the flower to fly ……

    Every smile is meaningful. It clearly guides us to differentiate between the two different smiles, one is progressive and the other is harmful. Thanks friend, for sharing such a wonderful message. (Report) Reply

    yet
    a blooming flower rotten the flower to fly ……

    Simply fantastic. Beautiful the utterance carries the totality.

    it’s the surface
    of the internal manifestation of what the spirit
    move,

    And the poet moves through a classic way of poetry to reflects some unfolded truth of life with moderate expression. Well-written good poem. Thank you.

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
