Life & Rock - Poem by Kathup Tsering

A vivid grass
Growing on the rock!

a green tree
Climbing on the rock!

Life, Oh life! as a rock
embracing the mountain!

How could you wonder
I am a lifeless soul?

    It is the feeling behind the words, not the words... and the feelings are wonderful! There is no lifelessness in a Kathup. (smile) (Report) Reply

    Theres an olde cliche, Kathup, that says: 'YOU CAN'T GET WATER FROM A STONE'...
    But no one ever said anything about grass or trees! LOL!
    Very nice work, my friend.
