Happy new year

Second by second minute ends
Minute by minute hour ends
Hour by hour day ends
Day by day week ends
Week by week month ends
Month by month year ends
Though every year ends
Second by second minute begins
Minute by minute hour begins
Hour by hour day begins
Day by day week begins
Week by week month begins
Month by month year begins
Prompting us to perceive
Every end has a new beginning!

    It reads like a concrete poem It is brilliant.. It is cool. But it charges the reader with an optimistic view of life. Happy New Year Dear Poet (Report) Reply

    It was like you had made the geography of time into a matryoshka doll, with every moment becoming a precedents for the next, showing that infinity can be stretched to a simple moment and fabricated as a false perception of our existence. Time is Now and only Now all other points are ephemeral. A fascinating read with a deep philosophical undercurrent.

    Hi Vijay, you requested me to comment on your poem, so I'll give you my genuine feeling about it. It has a powerful message behind it, however, I found that it was a bit too repetitious. Perhaps breaking it up with different words would make it more riveting.
    Best wishes and Happy New Year! :)

    Nice wordings. Top notch Spiritual Leaders say Time is illusion. All that is is this moment only, which is eternal. Try catching the space between thoughts, a thoughtless state and stay there. If you could capture that moment you have achieved everything, Eternal Happiness. (Report) Reply

    I like how you showed the concept of the begginging in every end. I think it goes deeper than most people think. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
