A Step Away Poem by Soran M. H

A Step Away

Rating: 5.0

A group of souls
stood under the shade
of an era
watching those nightingales
in their cage....

May I know them.
They are just a step
far away from

then flying in a new sky.

Those souls
who are awake
only need a second rest
from thinking
as they became pessimistic
with the long dark winter's nights
and hopeless
with the burning summer's

Part Two. Nightingales and their promise of freedom and the young men both seem " just a step / far away from delightfulness / then flying in a new sky." The young men haven't grown bitter and pessimistic yet so they sense and desire the simple joy of open range and open expression and I pray they keep the purity of their soul and fly out of any cage laid to trap them 10++++++++

Part One. Here I am again. This poem calls me. I don't know if I follow but what I am drawn to is the nightingales- and the souls who watch them in their cages... and I wonder who is most in a cage- the nightingales or the young men....

A revisit of this great poem gave me the opportunity to think over and ponder the wonderful thoughts of the brilliant Poet. And I reiterate my previous comment that it is a poem of great depth. I concur with the comments of Poet Bangalee more particularly the second stanza. Beautifully written. To my Poem List.
