[02] Cruel Time - Poem by Ashraful Musaddeq

What's happening or to be happened
On the other bank of the river?

Is there any modest bonsai well and good-
Any ribbon to connect far and near?
Occurrence is loosing its phenomenon
Magic can't peeps through eye sights!

Scorching sunny day rolling on dusts
Moon-less night sits on insomniac grill
Dark-blue grief walks on a rope-way
Situation is a cruel demand for network!

Time is walking on the cool wave
Alien is calling from an unknown chip!

    A wonderful poem with well expressed epithets like ''cruel time'' and cognitive metaphors like: ''Time is walking on the cool wave'', used to highlight the transformation of nature under the action of time......I like it very much... so there is my little 10++ for this great poem...

    flowing with depth....
    as what Palas said..'i can feel but cant express'
    and i too cant express the impact it brings to me, my thoughts into words
    this piece is great...very elegant...meaningful
    10++++

    I can feel but can't express the thoughts in me as the Time passes before me in waves and I continue to reamin a silent spectator.Nice imagery. (Report) Reply

    I cannot recommernd this writing, but I did give it a 7, which is my highest non recommendation score. The writing is quiite good in fact. The problem is the purpose of the writing and the meaning of the lines. I cannot understand either.
