Treasure Island

Valsa George


Twin Triplets.No.12


WASTED EFFORTS

A bridge across a dried up river
Beethovenian symphony in deaf ears
A volume of poems for prosaic minds

ANIMATION

Lone waters suddenly fructified with darting fishes
Dark night sky made aflame with twinkling stars
A barren heart fuelled with the elixir of love

    A bridge across a dried up river is forethought on command
    Beethoven's 5th was written by a deaf man
    Prosaic is such a beautiful sounded word to mean nothing
    Fish in clean waters are a significant sign of good life
    Stars are our home of original thought
    Love turns a desert of a heart into an oasis (Report) Reply

    Valsa, nice comparison in wasted efforts- A dried up river doesn't need a bridge; No use of Beethovenian symphony to deaf ears; And to a prosaic mind no use of volumes of poems! What a wonderful imagination, Valsa! In animation too - Lone waters - with darting fishes; Dark night sky aflame with twinkling stars; and a barren heart fuelled with the elixir of love- all captivate the heart! Valsa, I seem to have rewritten the verses! Ha! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
