# # Let Her Not Sacrifice Anymore.....

Branches reaching out for us
Extended arms in embrace
Birds nesting everywhere
She stands tall with grace
She is the tree with deep roots
Feeding us all with her fruits
Forgetting herself in the bargain
Her pleasures forfeited for pain within
She is a woman, she is life
Her blossoms, create seed
Life, in orchard and its creed
Let her leaves shine, let her branches soar
Let her not sacrifice anymore …

    Nikunj, this is soooo beautiful and vivid in its capturing the mood of feminity in its wholesome splendour... You have very soft thoughts for the female community and may you be blessed - arya

    Nikunji, I must admit you made me wish all men could read this and start valuing us. You really do value a woman, which is quite attractive.

    I can relate to this poem. Your message is lovely and our higher power knew we had the strength to handle it all that's why He/She put us in that position. Liked the smoothness of your poem, just like the softness of a woman, nice form.

    nice extended metaphor:
    ''She is a woman, she is life
    Her blossoms, create seed
    Life, in orchard and its creed
    Let her leaves shine, let her branches soar
    Let her not sacrifice anymore ''
    well embedded into this abstract lyric poem, nice portrait, thank you for sharing...........10+++++

    A very nice poem
    This is more than an extended metaphor, and much better than most. I believe this would be considered a 'pathetic fallacy, ' or personification. I am not using this in any pejorative sense, but as descriptive of the kind of figure of speech you are using. Much more effective than say that horrid example 'Trees' by Joyce Kilmer.
