[03] Alive

Dedicated to Poet Asif Aijaz

Slice the yesterday
Like the onion
And feed the tomorrow

Slice the love
Like the bread
And feed the dream

Slice the moment
Like the silence
And feed the desire

Slice the life
Like the time
And feed the death

On the edge of moment
You are still alive

    seperating life into slices makes everything more palateable.

    The Tribute - heartfelt & excellent
    Your Ingenuiety - I bow to!
    Simple on the surface
    We have to delve deep
    And ponder still
    Before we gather
    The Pearls within!

    Good structure, I never considered life as slices, but this seems realistic.

    your poems, and this one is the best example so far that I have read, have deeply spiritual meaning with undertow of philosophy. I read and reread them. I will continue to work my way through them. Thank you for all your effort.

    It is a wonderful poem.Its message is that the essence of the existence means the continuing life in death.The degrees of comparison are phases of feelings, because we need feelings to survive.I think that this poem belongs of a genius mind.
