hasmukh amathalal

(17/05/1947 / Vadali, Dist: - sabarkantha, Gujarat, India)

Keep moving ahead


Good beginning is half work done
Past is past and already gone
See that another leaf is opened
Golden words are silently penned

It is strong resolve
That solves
The problems
And overcome them

Nothing works
Than work
It must find
Good start of its kind

Man
Or woman
Must be equally enthusiastic
Bad odor takes place if water remains static

There has to be flow
And constantly go
If wind stops
Everything flops

So to say
Keep moving away
From the position
To form new composition

    This is a really good message. Keep moving and don't stop because you
    will lose your place and some other may take it and run. Staying in the same
    spot can stagnate you just like a pond that has no moving water. Very inspiring. (Report) Reply

    Half hearted attempt to inspire the dead

    I'm about the least qualified to critique another I'm not sure my own words would be considered poetry it's just a way to release some of my pain before it consumes me. Seemed to be a positive message maybe a little rushed

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:

at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
