TRANSLATING OUR THOUGHTS....
When we translate our sweet thoughts
Into a language others all know close to their hearts bright
Ten thousand smiles they create.
Let them be there.
When we translate our such fragrant thoughts
A few smiling faces begin to flash across our minds white
And many blooming daffodils they recreate.
Let them be there ever.
When we translate nightmares and vampire tales
Many of them turn green and go hiding
And one thousand 'fears' go never heard.
Let them be there never.
When we begin to translate our minds`untraceable treasures
Into a a few images of life in its myriad forms
Most of them linger on the canvas of time and reflections.
Let them be there up in your poetic encounters.
Translating our thoughts
Is a job that has to be ours ever
Till we breathe our last
And no thoughts arise for others even once.
