In This Lonely Road Poem by Kumarmani Mahakul

In This Lonely Road

Rating: 5.0

In this lonely road of hope,
Tranquillity was ruling,
Wild plans had grown beside,
Dawn had whispered a word.

We heard suddenly horn,
A lorry rushed into middle,
With high speed this came,
We left its way in clarity.

Green plants bloomed in love,
They tried to cover this lorry,
Being surrogate mothers of truth,
All plants liked to dandle road.

They sprinkled petals of light,
With fragrant and wild flowers,
On this lorry of life to paradise,
Trolley of lorry took them to God.

So many different aspects of morning are captured very poetically in this excellently crafted metaphoric gem. The peace of dawn is shattered by the honking of the horn of a lorry travelling at high speed. Beautiful green plants grew by the roadside and they seem to have been run over by the speeding lorry, which sent them back home to God. An amazing thought! Mother Nature is prolific and these plants will be replaced by her though they may meet the same fate. Excellent choice of graphic which adds a finishing touch to the poem. Lovely work! Thank you for sharing dear poet...

I can feel the freshness of the morning described with plants trespassing into the open space of the road and the lorry speeding along the bend, making it not so visible for anyone standing in the road...! I love the way you have given a metaphoric twist to this lorry as Lorry of Life... at the end!
