Paper Boats

Rating: 3.1
Day by day I float my paper boats one by one down the running
stream.
In bid black letters I write my name on them and the name of
the village where I live.
I hope that someone in some strange land will find them and
know who I am.
I load my little boats with shiuli flower from our garden, and
hope that these blooms of the dawn will be carried safely to land
in the night.
I launch my paper boats and look up into the sky and see the
little clouds setting thee white bulging sails.

The symbolic paper boat with philosophical undertone, signifies the life's journey each day we after sunset leave our boat with a hope that at sunrise it will bring lot of name fame and glory and this hope remains alive till we breathe our last breath. Outstanding poem..
