Translating Our Thoughts.... - Poem by M.D DINESH NAIR

When we translate our sweet thoughts
Into a language others all know close to their hearts bright
Ten thousand smiles they create.
Let them be there.

When we translate our such fragrant thoughts
A few smiling faces begin to flash across our minds white
And many blooming daffodils they recreate.
Let them be there ever.

When we translate nightmares and vampire tales
Many of them turn green and go hiding
And one thousand 'fears' go never heard.
Let them be there never.

When we begin to translate our minds`untraceable treasures
Into a a few images of life in its myriad forms
Most of them linger on the canvas of time and reflections.
Let them be there up in your poetic encounters.

Translating our thoughts
Is a job that has to be ours ever
Till we breathe our last
And no thoughts arise for others even once.

    Translating people thought can be so difficult, especially for people who has hidden mind behind spoken words...and i am not fav those kind of people because its hard to swallow and digest, i mean sometimes we hard to understand the meaning....but most of time i do know what their words carry for..especially in nice way... bad thing is most of people tend to judge when we share some thought, they can encounter your feeling in verses, but we just share a thought that cross in mind n ideas....however we must ready and preserve the way we talk so they dont misunderstand what we mean for, in our speak_SOul (Report) Reply

    wonderful, dear poet. The landing note itself had it all comprised of impulses to interpret in a million forms; well thats what poesy is all about, and your sensible pen has driven those blend of thoughts, imaginations and passions pretty well. Bravo! (Report) Reply

    whatever we realise into reality is the reflection of our thoughts...argumentative style is carried well..! (Report) Reply
