(9 -21 / Thrissur (Kerala) / Vijayawada (A.P) , India)


Ice melts
Like my dejected self sheds tears.
Ice melts
Like your diverted love weds liars.

Once far away in the lagoons of my past
A swan sailed till it was tired.
But now in the deserts of my present
A vulture snails till it is fired.

Ice melts
As the sun unknown rages, they say.
Ice melts
As the run unwon glares, they say.

I hold my stick downward ever
And move on the way forward ever.
Ice melts
And my pheonix waits...

    a deep metaphor with apt similes...completely rich in poetic diction....the phoenix
    here is as immortal as ever...let the ice melt..its the way of the world
    very well expressed... (Report) Reply

    The phoenix will also rise from his own ashes.It won't stay melted forever, though he encounters hardships in his way.A true warrior will always get off the floor.I like the message of your poem. (Report) Reply
