Deependra Kumar Jha


Sky is all yours


Yesterday’s gone
like disappearing clouds
like vanishing stars
like passing twilight
like fading moonlight

Leaving memories
of stress and fun
of rest and run
of hope and despair
of scare and care

It’s the time
to reflect on past glories
to bury bitter memories
to match a flowing stream
to catch the next dream

So, my friend!
grab with both hands
happiness is all yours
give wings to your dreams
sky is all yours

(Dedicated to one of my friends who is going to pursue his post graduation at a very reputed university. Wishing him a successful journey ahead.)

    yes the sky is all yours...meaning you are free to dream, to do something about it, to face its chalenge, and of course to be what you are after all...

    the poem is an expression of deep concern to someone (as your dedication stated) ...however, it should be noted that freedom is always something you are bound with, 'we are born free, to be found in it'...thanks for the poem. (Report) Reply

    '...........................time
    to reflect on past glories
    to bury bitter memories
    to match a flowing stream
    to catch the next dream'...
    quoted lines are poetic good...bring in a wish an attitude that's good... (Report) Reply

    Excellent extended simile:

    Yesterday’s gone
    like disappearing clouds
    like vanishing stars
    like passing twilight
    like fading moonlight

    and excellent visual surrealistic metaphor:

    give wings to your dreams

    Excellent symbolistic poem, very well expressed

    We know the sky is the limit and you have given us that and much more in your poem. We are able to rest knowing that we can drift through the clouds and the stars through your great write. Very good write, I like the rhythm and structure. Your friend in poetry Lynn (Report) Reply

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
