Salt Is Sweet - Poem by Kranthi Pothineni

Its dessert of salt
Rains mostly in night
And rarely in light
Has day and night
Color is black and white

Black resembles night
White resembles light
But its heart is black
So pours mostly in night
Whenever heart is tight

It pours all the night
Until heart sees light
Its rain is always salty
So it is very colorful
And makes life cheerful

It makes heart light
From night to light
With its salty rain
Its salt is very tasty
So drink it with heart

It makes heart strong
And makes life sweep
All past-reaped grief
With its flowing tears
Tears salt is sweet

    from the weep
    of the night
    there came
    a light
    to the heart,
    brought joys
    now the tears
    alike salt are sweet...................

    the essence of real happiness is being brought about after all the dark nights....10+++ (Report) Reply
