A Day Of Revival - Poem by Rahman Henry

Birds made of glass
Bees of wax
Butterflies of plastic
Horses of sweet globules
Waiting
eagerly
Looking for
A day of revival

When stones would blossom out
With the soft touch of moonlit

And
From the oblivion, people would awake
In a body, and a carnival
Spring out of deadly silence

Towards horizon
A narrow path will widen itself
To make you disappear
With all your pride and proclamation

Topic(s) of this poem: resurrection

    Happier than mourning. Tune than words. Look on Gaza. The tower of horizon. Of course, revival - hidden between all the entities - poet's prayer will rise. Stones will blossom. All artists create paintings, sculptures, drawings, ceramics, skilful, all - everything will be artistic. And the artist's work - one day will be destroyed. Poet is not the artist. Poet's words - is not artistic. Poet's creation - immortal. Poet - creator Representative. Poets will be perennial. To all of life. Poet's life ahead. Trampled under foot all the way to Earth. Anger, revolution, love, happiness, hope, prayer, sacrifice everything. (Report) Reply

    And
    From the oblivion, people would awake
    In a body, and a carnival
    Spring out of deadly silence Brother these lines are charged with highly poetic expressions, thanks for sharing.
