Payal Parande



People see clouds in the sky
I see white snow on the blue ground
Way up high

People see stars and moon
In the night
I see millions of lights celebrating
Our mirth
And moon being giant

People see green grass and a tall tree
I see natures astonishing creation
Moderate and free

People see decease and endings
I see birth and a new

You don't need a mirror or
immense lens
You can see what I can
You just need,
new frame of reference

    Not at all I would consider this childish..and if at all it were.. Then everyone should have an element of it.. Poetry is all about imagination... And only a poet can 'Snow' up above.. N thats the beauty.. (Report) Reply

    It is a beautifull poem. Loved it. And payal, it might look childish but it is a good poem. It bears a child's idea to perceive things. You can always get stuck in a tought circumstance and bear its torments. But you can always have this choice to turn away and change ur frame of reference. Well this is wat i learned from this poem. It is indeed a beautifull poem. (Report) Reply

    In brief the poem tells us of divers symmetries people come from according to cultural backgrounds/classes/beliefs/proffessions etc and it's based on the truth! What's important, then, is Unity in Diversity. (Report) Reply

    ur frame of reference pricks up your true mind thats always in exploring new, away from what all the curiousity of your thoughts keep going...... (Report) Reply

    It's okay to not see something like others never wrong but we look it in different perspectives...sometimes it can lead a misunderstand too when people argue about same but talk in different way, if we tried to understand each other without pushing our words to them to listen we will know...This is a good poem, never be afraid to share opinion because it may give a view in different angle, where people may not see it on that way..._Unwritten Soul (Report) Reply

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
