A Bed Of Sand - Poem by Jasbir Chatterjee

Life isn't
Always easy.
And your bed isn't
Always of roses;
But even life is human.
It takes pity,
Softens the blows,
Lets you draw solace
From a bed of sand.

Topic(s) of this poem: dogs, life, suffering

    Thanks for re-creating the scene (displayed in the picture) through words. I had also clicked a similar photo about 3-4 years back. I gave it a burial and you gave it a life. I must thank you for this poetic creativity. (Report)Reply

    Life is not easy, nor a bed of roses,
    but it lets you draw solace
    from a bed of sand.
    Lovely, well said, and it gels.
