A Chinese Proverb And My Thought Poem by Savita Tyagi

A Chinese Proverb And My Thought

Rating: 4.8


A friend wrote a Chinese proverb,
Said 'she strongly believes in it.'

"An invisible thread connects those
Who are destined to meet regardless
Of time, place or circumstance.
The thread may stretch or tangle but will never break."
(A Chinese proverb)


My instant reply:

An invisible thread connects us
Even with those we are
Never destined to meet.

Her answer 'Hmm never thought of it"
My thought ' shouldn't we be thinking of it.'

Many many congratulations dear poetess. In the long journey of life it is possible that people though living in different parts of the globe, may come in contact or perhaps meet because of the invisible thread that is there connecting them already. Many of us call it destiny. The proverb has insightfully been said. And you have really put it in renewed energy

''An invisible thread'' - sort of 'poetic entanglement', about which not even quantum physics may give us some help to get directions :) Yes, maybe it's all about 'destiny' - whatever such a term means. Congrats, dear Savita

God is connected to mind. Nature acts as invisible thread. This is very true. In silence we feel this universe. Thought is always amazing. This poem is very brilliantly penned with amazing note....5 stars
