Treasure Island

Vijay Sai

(30 12 1975 / Trichy, South India)

Divine showers

Another day
Another disappointment
Haplessly dethroned
Helplessly ignored
Teased and tormented
Not a point to prove
I accepted the cause
For no fault of mine
And moved on
Reminding myself repeatedly
This moment is never permanent in life
Shattered and tarnished
I tread along the wayside
Yelling aloud! Is there anyone who could hear me?
Twin eyes soon drenched in swimming pool
Just then, little droplets
Pouring into divine showers
Wiped away all my tears
I thanked my heavenly friend
Feeling fresh and rejuvenated
I got up
Saying to myself
There’s always another chance!
To prove
The hunter too can become the hunted!

    Beautiful poem. When we keep our eyes wide open (probably brain) , opportunities are unlimited. It's like stars in sky, we have to scale, just, the Terrace to view. Wait for the cloud to remove veil, all disappointments will vanish. I write this, that all our expressions reflect our true inner feelings. I write every expressions literally. I take every expressions literally. Nice expressions. (Report) Reply

    Fantastic.Torments, tortures are part of our life but God is always kind to gift something, to take it in our stride, in order to get over the moment of agony--be it optimism, be it a new friend or whatever.Very well written. (Report) Reply

    there is no life without hope and there is no hope without life...
    ups and downs that's life... when you're in a tunnel surely you will glance a ray this is the HOPE, he asks for you to run and run and run until you reach the SUN...

    your DIVINE SHOWERS is well expressed! (Report) Reply

    Dear Vijay,
    Thanks for your invite. It's a good poem. The message is loud and clear.Choice of words and rhythm is perfectly maintained.I feel two changes will make the flow of your poem better, this is just a suggestion, choice is yours,
    In L-14-'-Is there anyone who could hear' may be changed to-'Is there anybody there? '
    In L-19-'I thanked my heavenly friend' to 'I thanked Heaven'
    I liked the poem. rated at 9. keep on writing

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
