The Details - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

one gets too particular about the details of
the morning picture: there are two rainbows
from the top of the galvanized roof of the old house
surrounded by trees
its other foot extending to the hazy hills
the rain is soft
landing on the small ponds
below the trees with few brownish leaves
making some ripples
the grass is wilting by the previous summer heat
the wind whispers softly like a woman in love
the horizon gives a gray boundary of the foot of the hills
some houses look like pigments of black and brown spots
too distant for my sight
i sit here
my mind is calm like a pigeon roosting on the steel beam
of the gymnasium

they say
that when one gets too lonely
the details of the world becomes
too visible
one can even hear the flapping wings
of a butterfly lost inside
the room of your heart

    I love the last stanza too...
    delicate musing...

    'they say
    that when one gets too lonely
    the details of the world becomes
    too visible
    one can even hear the flapping wings
    of a butterfly lost inside
    the room of your heart'...actually i like the flow here..it is matured and poetically arranged....ur right, when ur lonely everything's detailed...but i guess, same emotion when ur happy, it is detailed too...
