An Ice Cube Poem by Gita Ashok

An Ice Cube

Rating: 4.5

Unassuming, humble and colorless,
with perfect corners and smooth edges,
transparent and with glistening faces,
an ice cube welcomes light rays gleefully.

A perfect geometry model
with absolute stunning symmetry,
an ice cube when held,
gets deformed magically.

An ice cube is –
a miracle in a tropical desert
but a traitor on a hairpin bend.
It is perfectly at home in a freezer
but frenzied near a burning stove.

An ice cube –
a wondrous object of art,
is a savior after a painful surgery.
Leave it out in the sunshine
and see it vanish joyfully.

Leave it out in the sunshine and see it vanish joyfully. Those last two words vanish joyfully have lot to say

Good refreshment. Normally few poets only go to unexplored arenas and bring out the content. This poet dares to venture such fields. This mindset makes all the difference. All the Best.
