Twin Triplets.No.14. Birth N' Death, Deadly Love - Poem by Valsa George


If waking is a mini birth
And sleeping, a minor death
Aren’t we born and dead everyday?


Oh! How thousands immolate themselves
And charred to chunks of coal
In the mushroom holocaust of love!

    Twin short and inspiring writes. Love like coal can grow hot
    and burn then turn to ashes when cold then grows old! Nice

    Succinct and powerful coupling, the first evocative the latter provocative. (Report) Reply

    Contrasting triplets. We are also dead when we see injustice and are helpless to act. Thank you. (Report) Reply
