Nature Is What You Dont See - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

nature is what we dont see
for instance the essence that pushes words out
for this poem fated for posterity
the birds that without fail
chirp at first light, morn breeze
the unseen clock working at the dot
nature is what we dont see
the nocturnal bloom, that folds itself
in the day, throws its fragrance
in the dead of night as lovers
hide in each others' bossoms
below the soft glare of the moon
centimetre by centimetre
it has inched forward to exhibit its
full blown majestry to the world
Nature is what we dont see
the shadow play master tilting the earth
the petals for its bloom dance
the successive cells here there
guided towards optimal functions
and that ogiasmic tremour
that shuttles the world round and round
nature is what you should not see
the formulas, secrets kept behind everything
that could get even einstein mad
in unveiling, explaining them
nature is what we all should not see
nor equipped to see
though it rambles through our every cell
like the worst of storm

    Did you set a camera up to record a summer day. That's what I was picturing that I could see this fast forward over a 24 hour period. Very well done 10++ (Report)Reply

    Er, sorry to interrupt, it's good, but please may I warn you that to a native English speaker (as I am) certain words have an immediate 'switch-off' effect. 'Orgasmic' is one. Others that come to mind are 'vibrant' and 'ultimate'. Anyway, please carry on. (Report)Reply

    ... a delicious poem which Miss Dickinson would have appreciated... i enjoyed it very much... at the risk of being slightly retentive, what appear to me to be mis-spellings of words like 'bosom' and 'orgasmic' are the only negatives... nice work (Report)Reply
