Bonsai - Poem by Ashraful Musaddeq

Pleasure enclosed noon on a table
A magnolia-soul from opposite chair
Puts on elegant dress
Like a blooming melody dancing on.

Bonsai is a living image of endless dream
I've ever seen a person how far delighted
Simple, extremely white portrait of life
So pretty and so the finest
never have I ever seen.

Billions of small bells are refraining
from entering the dark room
And I'm returning back towards a window
Through which a large a4 navy-blue sky is smiling.

    I like the images you have chosen - very delightful.

    A magnolia-soul from opposite chair
    Puts on elegant dress

    trees are grown like bonsai...
    imagine a world where elephants
    are grown like bonsai animals...
    how cruel it will be!

    Hey thanks for your comment, thought I'd comment back.
    I really like this poem, its confusing and wonderful. At first if I'm honest, I hadn't a clue what was happening but I reread it and it clicked into place which is really cool. Its boring to have obvious poems right.
    I'd give it a 10.

    love A4 blue sky through window.
    see The Ballad of Reading Gaol by
    Oscar Wilde for another poem about
    that little patch of blue sky.

    Best Wishes and Thank You

    Ashraful, you have painted a minature of life so beautifully. It is spring here and my own bonsai are coming to their best with lovely new light green clothes, but none are as beautiful as yours. Bob (Report)Reply
