Abstract Vs Concrete Poem by Nosheen Irfan

Abstract Vs Concrete

Rating: 5.0

The impalpable passing of time
The intangible sailing of life
Make you realize you live
in abstractions
Although surrounded by the concrete
And you understand
That concrete might be visible
But it's the abstract that touches
You more deeply
That strikes you harder.

The intrigues of life and the enigma that is time are very interestingly captured in the poem. As the ultimate Indian philosophy states, "what you see is not what exists. And what really exists, you would not see at all"… good poem, Nosheen
