any picture comes to my mind,
i try to give it a body of words,
love to sit on other blooms,
for honey, color, fragrance........
Life is all about choices and taking right decisions...Good one Sumana :)
your words fit this political cartoon very well. excellent! :)
There are (always) two possibilities...
Lovely! I enjoy the illustration, especially the irony of its similarity to the Aesop's fable of Sour Grapes. Your poem expresses exactly the opposite. I like the word "toothsome"---too rarely used.
... and life is about taking risks too.. we dont know what's in store for us if we don't try at after all..
We need that courage to find the sweetness of life... we really need it
Leap! Make the dream yours. Real. ♥
Never stop dreaming! You will enjoy it, and if it comes true - even moreso.
Oh I enjoyed this - the L words, and then the unexpected toothsome. Cool! Made me smile.
luv the aesthetic presented of contemplation and appreciation, not only choices but the duality of beinghave a lovely Sundayhappy you stopped by my Sunday Limemuch love...
Life always gives us two options...the dream and dilemma , nicely penned... :-)
Great poem, that hope to get what the other has isn't always bad.
I love the image beckoning me on a quest to go for it or still dream...and both "delightfully toothsome"
Oh, that delicious moment before you decide whether to go for it or not...caught perfectly in your awesome poem, Sumana.
"Luscious life luring... delightfully toothsome" Sparkling writing Sumana
Great alliteration in that first line! Luscious :-)
Sometimes the enjoyment is all in the trying.
Real dilemma sometimes or at each fork of the road? ~ Love that you use the idea and pic of famous fable. x
Your poem here makes me turn into a person who is excited for what lies ahead of him. That whatever it is in store for me will either be something to dream about or to receive appreciatively.
I guess all leaps begin with a dream. So we must dream, leap and live. Great write Sumana.
How to convince yourself like the fox that the grapes out of reach are unripe and sour! Surely you must leap in the attempt at your dream.
A gist of one of my childhood stories. Beautifully penned Sumana!
I want to leap! Whether the outcome is success or failure, I never want to stop trying, experimenting, and growing. Great poem, Sumana.
Love this, especially the alliteration in that first line.
Whimsical and fun! The illustration: perfect.
There is only one way to know...jump for them.!
poetry to sink our teeth into. Loved it and the art Sumana!!!
"Oh to leap or not to leap" - My favourite line. (Maybe because I've been reading a lot of Shakespeare lately.)
Ah, what a lovely read !! Love the last line...
i would hate not to leap and miss out...rather to leap and miss...intriguing riddle to your words...
yes, i agree! i once read in an article that the brain does not know the difference between daydreaming an experience and actually living it...to the brain, a real experience exists in both!
Thank you for stopping by and sharing your valuable thoughts.........
