Beneath the lush green branch of a tree,

a life got shelter from the sweltering heat,

scorched in the desolate wastelands,

the soul revived under the soothing  leaves!

Sprinkling drops of drizzle ,

watered the surface,

lying barren till now,

sheaths of grass  sprouted  with grace!

Shadow a life ! for you never know,

Your small gesture would rejuvenate it as whole,

Infusing life into the dreaded soul,

Birthing new hopes of splendor!

Worthiest virtue ,

an act of kindness,

gives a new life to the extinct humaneness!

    However, it is hard to take full grasp of your poem as it needs time to plunge into your ocean of creativity. Though, it is so fresh and lively…

    I loved your poem, Soumya, but I don’t understand your use of the word “moron”. Is it a spelling error?

      Frankly Eric! I wished to express a small gesture of kindness in any form can turn a person of any intelligence level,or a person who gets trampled by situations who is more or like a moron in mind and heart can get transformed with the imbibed faith or support .

        I guess this could be a cultural vocabulary difference, but in American English this term is meant to be offensive toward another person. It was once used long ago in a classification system of psychology, but that system is no longer in use. The term’s meaning has changed drastically. If I were to say to someone in the U.S., “You are a moron!”, it is the equivalent of saying “You are Stupid!” or “You are an Ignoramus!”.

          Oh OK! Can you suggest any other word in that place,that which you think would suit?

        • soumyav February 16, 2013 / 9:02 pm
