Words Build Bridges

The mind itself can’t enjoy alone
Clamors to share it with others
Words build the bridges over souls
Paper birds with the message cajole

Eternity, through our minds’ prism,
Reflects into Nature its myriad hues
The sunset offsets its glamour glare
From heart the beautiful poetry flows.

Though the paper birds now fly bit slow
Messages are soothing as flakes of snow

*Inspired by Ms. Sandra Fowler’s poem ‘Paper Birds’.

    Atma is supreme! No bridges over it...only deception!

    A poem certainly from the heart of a life of building bridges with
    words of wisdom and this poem has just that...soothing like a flake of snow++10

    As you did in a comment on one of my poems you do again, wonderfully, here. What a pleasure to read this beautiful work that flows on from Sandra's grand piece. Two marvelous wordsmiths, at thier best, complimenting each other using words on the wings of paper birds to bridge the miles between them.----10

    I am privileged to know that 'Paper Birds' has inspired such a
    beautiful poem. Your last lines are exceptional. I wish
    I had written them. Take care.

    Always your friend at poemhunter,

    Sandra

    How true my friend we need others to validate our very existence.
    To share thoughts with likeminded people is a privilege

    Yes, one cannot get satisfaction alone unless one shares what one has with others. Poetry, paper bird and snow flakes of messages are good images! Solution for the problem is answered in my poem, A Get Together and hope it will be interesting to you and all readers, I believe!
