Shadow - Poem by Kranthi Pothineni

In between my fingers moon got stuck
And stars were hidden behind my hand
My golden ring circled the golden sun
And my breath moved the thick clouds

Huge waterfalls went into my dry throat
And the tallest mounts came into my fist
One eye of mine is filled with deep blue
And the other one turned into green eye

World of mine now looks like a tiny grain
And its walls are lost under its own cover
This whole universe looks small before me
But this shadow of mine, is bigger than me

    excellent visual metaphor:
    ''My golden ring circled the golden sun''
    excellent meditative poem, very well expressed ideas to convey the message

    The big is seen small while the small is seen big. Your imagination runs very high in this poem. (Report) Reply
