Tulips In The Snow ~ Lale U Snijegu - Poem by Jankovic Zoran

You're looking at the unnatural picture:
Tulips in the snow.
Tulips are a symbol of beauty and power.
Snow is what you love.

Snow will dissolve, tulips will dry
because in nature everything disappears
and is reborn.

There are many symbols with your life
in the image you are looking at.
It's like you dream of beauty
and next to you, on the table,
is basket with plastic flowers.
It's like your blind minds.
They spend their time in vain.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Lale u snijegu

Gledaš u neprirodnu sliku:
Lale u snijegu.
Lale su simbol ljepote i moći.
Snijeg je ono što ti voliš.

Snijeg će se otopiti,
lale će se osušiti
jer u prirodi sve nestaje
i ponovo se rađa.

Ima mnogo simbolike
sa tvojim životom
slika u koju gledaš:
Kao da maštaš o ljepoti
a pored tebe je, na stolu,
korpa sa plastičnim cvijećem.
Isto kao tvoje slijepe misli
koje troše vrijeme uzalud.

    Though the basket with plastic flowers may seem appealing at first, there's nothing like touching, seeing, smelling the life in a real flower. Even though it will die. Well written thought. (Report)Reply

    Oh, my frightened Truth, I'm sorry to bother you by reading boring songs on a boring site. Still, I have to ask you why you are doing it? Perhaps in order to find out the Truth.

    There are many symbols with your life
    in the image you are looking at.
    It's like you dream of beauty
    and next to you, on the table,
    is basket with plastic flowers.
    It's like your blind minds.
    They spend their time in vain.
    We find many contrasting images in life.Even in one image we find different perspectives.It is our perception that makes the difference.A beautiful poem chosen as the Poem of the Day, Congratulations!
