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........
A serious moment is visiting your blog and revel in your thoughts and verse :)
Oh thank you Deepakji :)
This is very wonderful, Sumana, and I like the voice you use in it.
I like the comparisons you made, Sumana. Interesting to contemplate what is serious for 'man' as well as 'beast.' I like the idea of taking time for a new beginning.. We all need to do that in life periodically, I think.
What is serious for man isTo take time for a new beginningTo follow a dreamEven risk taking a less trodden pathThese were my favorite lines :D One should always take a risk if it means their dreams can come true! Loved your poem :Dxoxo
The pattern is an interesting one!
Wonderful poem, Sumana. The comparisons are exemplary!
We all need to follow the dream, lovely words.
Sumana,Being brave and stepping out into a new pathway...New beginnings..Thank you Sumana for your prompts and interaction with me at PJ.Eileen
Sumana, I really enjoyed this. Very imaginative take on the prompt!
I really like this poem
very interesting take on responses to timing, the ant, the grasshopper, the cuckoo all shows us responses and consequences, humanity has the edge on being the risk taker, not conditioned like the ant or the grasshopper; luv how you show itand my favourite are your ending lines"To listen to time’s callAnd respond seriouslyTo make a man of man"happy you dropped in to read minemuch love...
There are indeed those "serious moments" in life. Very nicely expressed Sumana.
So often we tend to think of time within a man-made construct and I like the way you've shaken those parameters up a bit. For time waits for no man - nor does it wait for any living thing.
Every line you have peened down has a wonderful meaning :) Great thoughts. I loved the last lines the most :)
Wonderful poem, Sumana, one of your best I think!
Thank you for stopping by and sharing your valuable thoughts.........
