Four values


Life of all creation
has to subscribe four values
like dawn to dusk has to cover
mid-day and mid-night

each n every moment
can not be skipped
as impossible to jump
from dusk to dawn

Has to wait for each moment
that brings a new message
for life and hope

Whole life is calculated
with escalating value
of each moment of life
for completeness of life

    Yes skipping moments, reliving moments, it's all impossible really. Reminds me of window shopping. My Mom used to take me window shopping so much when I was a kid, how I hated it! Why look at something you cannot have! She used to say ah but one can dream! I always thought it was taking time away from the things I actually had to do....and it was....How I wished then that I could fast forward time past the window shopping......a foolish way to waste time.....

    There is a value for each moment you say and reduce the values to four. It would be nice if you elaborate the four values. Maybe one can make a list of four as one feels. My list looks like respect, compassion, love, peace. Thank you for the poem which made me think a lot. (Report) Reply

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
