The Earth - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

the earth bursts
forth in the bloom
in its desire to show itself
a colourful wear
to weave its magic
sends its greeting to the world
this physique that enables
the earth to spring forth
with all its its senses, faculties
speaks in an array of tongues
creates love lines, jealousies, rivalries
earth runs its way through the world
with legs, wings, fins
from every inch in the garden
a new personality bursts forth
through the bloom
through homosapiens
from every patch of land
the earth talks
runs through me
those tiny grains below your feet
that help you stand on your two feet

    Power ful, robust, visionary...... so many words come to mind. I love the ending. So much going on and we only touch it from where we stand. Some of us can see beyond whereas others can only feel for what directly touches them. This goes to my favorites. GS (Report) Reply
