Ripen But A Bitter Fruit - Poem by nimal dunuhinga

Fallen to the earth with a branch from a decayed old tree.
It must be the 'Specific Gravity' according to Issac.Newton's law,
If the earth refused to plant my seeds
And I am sure a bird never takes me away.
Oh! Then I would be no more this miserable fruit in the solitary garden of Eden where they made illicit love.

    Nimal, life's slings and arrows are certainly taking their toll This poem combines anguish with a wry twist of humour Tis said minor keys in music are always the most loved. A fine piece of writing. love, Allie xxxx (Report) Reply
