Burnt Flower


Siblings playing see-saw
Tiny-tots hiding and seeking themselves
Boys fielding cricket balls

    Mindless violence in a mindless world! The search for meaning and for humanity in your poems is compelling. Your writing has power. When I read one of your poems I feel drawn to read the next. Thank you for introducing me to them. (Report) Reply

    I wanted to rate this art but you had no rate section Still this is a lovely story Harsh and meaningless violence detailed Try to not be so directly in the story and convey your input or feeling to these events Click my name to see how I express things in one of my poems (Report) Reply

    I like the idea of this poem and the sudden darker shift midpoint. Though there is something about the ending that personally I feel needed a change...maybe a symbolic metaphor. Good poetry. (Report) Reply

    It's a chilling and obvious warning that nothing can stop you becoming an innocent victim. Thankyou

    dumb-struck, aghast, confounded, sober and irked all at once. With a myriad soul, I pray no more flower gets burnt this unruly means. A good piece, thought-provoking (Report) Reply

    Did this really happen? where? how sad.
    I hope nothing like this will happen to me.
    Your lines make me see every action, very clear,
    very vivid.
    Nice poem. (Report) Reply

    Just another common, beautiful day, and then the storm of human arrogance and stupidity. Two lives ruined. One much more beautiful and enriching than the other. Very well done. (Report) Reply

    oh brother...i remember this brutal murder...which made everyone shocked for a while.....
    you wrote it very well...
    Let us all pray for the noble soul
    To rest in peace
    yes we should pray, not only for that teacher but also for that child....... (Report) Reply

    Your poem needs to start walking, please review it so that it can start walking. I see that you can do it besides the fact that you have a real subject to write about. (Report) Reply
