World In A Suitcase


The Amber lights smiled,
Blinked through the darkness
Sending coded messages of hope.

Grey aeroplane screamed,
A giant metallic albatross,
Soaring into secret skies.

World in a battered suitcase,
Can a terminal building,
Be her new beginning?

Excitement shines in dark eyes,
Hope flew with her across the seas
Following tall and resolute.

    Wherever you go, a destiny will follow you, neither is bad but always chance that we need to understand...like bird we can fly to any tree and find place wherever we can go..we are free but destiny is our shadow that comes with the few options..if world bring it night sure we just not at the sunbright side but then night still beautiful that we can never see whenever it is daylight_Soul (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
