Treasure Island

Yasmeen Khan


Bonsai


Emerald verse
Bejeweled with
Rubies ablaze
Pruned rhymes
In neat syllables
Boughs in prime
Beauty in miniature
As mirrored in a dew
Dwarf in stature
But celestial growth
Essence of forests
Tall in some grove
Now caresses a pot
A delightful trove
Rests on a sill
Kissed by sun
In breeze it thrills
Delights my heart
The work of artifice
That rests in a pot

    lovely one but if i say one negative point of the piece that would be that the narration is lacking a kick or punch and that is too flat....... (Report) Reply

    lovely to read and easy on the tongue
    the short and sparse style adds a diminutive charm to the whole thing
