Zeal - Poem by M. Asim Nehal

I am the petal kept inside the book
You are the flower that flourishes to bloom

I am the empty shell thrown by the sea
You are the pearl hidden in a shell

I am the unweave yarn lying on a bench
You are the silken shawl worn by the queen

I am unread book lying on a shelf
You are the degree hanging on the wall

I am the patience waiting for eternity
You are very busy, have no time to waste

We are contrast yet live together
In the heart of a poet, in the mind of a philosopher

Topic(s) of this poem: life, love

Form: Couplet
