Beads... - Poem by Syed Ahmed Shah

The day lay scattered on the cold marble floor
Like colorful beads escaping
From a torn rosary string...

The sun stands baffled
Through which door to leave...

(c) Syed Ahmed Shah

    Lines start beautifully, however on comprehensive levels it might be absolutely beautiful with few. Or more words, or so as it may seem :) (Report) Reply
