WHERE YOU’RE AT

It’s a cool, cool world
Where blooms speak in green silence
Calling the sunbird
                     
It’s a cheerful world
Where Nature abounds in food
Hearts pray for long winter

It’s a cruel world
Where pavement dwellers dream fire
Curse fog and their stars

  7. Our appreciation of weather and seasons and place should be just that - an appreciation of all we are given. It is neither inherently good nor bad. It just is what we have.
    Especially liked the last stanza.

  8. It certainly is a cruel world for pavement dwellers...Hope the corrupt politicians and greedy powermongers get the karma they deserve.

  11. Strong, mythic images. For me, it conquered up a vision of an elaborate, almost surreal painting filled with contrasts.

  12. The concrete does tend towards destruction-- I enjoyed the lyrical tone of the first two stanzas, beautifully penned :-)

  17. It's a world of contrasts and it is unfairly split between the haves and have-nots. Thoughtful poem with a poignant last stanza...
