    A poem of beauty and pain.
    Friends are like plants
    give them warmth and love,
    no matter how they are cut down
    they will come back. (Report) Reply

    Very poetic-the way the science of the Sunlight acting as a stimuli has been worded - 'the plant cocks.....Thank you for sharing. (Report) Reply

    I would visit my friends
    but feel troubled and shy.

    Nice stitch. This last two lines gives the writing another status of social reality. Beautiful cool writing but much powerful to touch the conscious. Regards, pranab. (Report) Reply

    A well crafted and beautifully written poem,
    the meaning I cultivated was the clash between
    old hopes and new dreams. (Report) Reply
