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........
so many amazing things in the world
Indeed, I think we can never lose that ability to say WOW to things that we see and think about. There are so many wonderful things; but I am definitely hoping that love will grow more than hate.
I find the universe quite awe inspiring - and it is interesting as I can't figure it out. I was walking through the woods once and felt such an overpowering awe I took my shoes off. And I have been in crowds and felt the same.
I hope I never lose the capacity to marvel at the numerous beauties life and nature offer.
Saying 'wow' is an acknowledgement of the myriad of good things that one really appreciates and are blessed to enjoy! Well penned Sumana!Hank
A very interesting tone to this poem, which gradually drifts towards helplessness and sardonic inquiry, in an almost flippant style. Well done.
absolutely wow. still a large part of the world is undiscovered and expect more wows to follow. also, some studies of the past could give us another wow too.
How important it is for poets to be social commentators as you suggest. Biographies and history books tend to warp the truth which poets may well correct and be unearthed in future times.
The sheer scale of everything is daunting to think about. Bowing wonder is appropriate.
yes, there are still so many wonders that we say wow! to. :)
The wow factor is ever-present for those with eyes to see.
When we have lost our wonder and wow the world can seem like a very dark place..long may those wows continue...a magical write
There is indeed much to bow to in awe to the wonders of this universe.. such a delightful read :DLots of love,Sanaa
Yes, there will always be wonder, no matter what else.
Strangely enough, I am compelled to say, "Wow". I am also interested in this poetry style. Thanks for sharing.
Love how you move it into almost senseless wows. The universe can outshine all the things that men can do. Accomplished villanelle
Interesting, how even the simple things we experience make us tend to say WOW. :) Lovely thoughts. and wow to your poem, Sumana.
Wow!! :) Beautifully penned.. Interesting thoughts!
So beautifully written. Is this a villanelle? The two repeated lines are especially beautiful.
with the right view there is so much wonder in this world. beautiful.
Love this Sumana. It feels soothing, somehow comforting to know the Universe is so vast, self healing perhaps. I too say "Wow!", so many times.
Love that first stanza especially. It is mind-boggling how many things there are that can 'wow' us in this world!!
Hey Sumana,I love your creativity with this one:: so outerspacey, it's very unique.
I love the refrain, such a beautiful reflection on the wonders of the universe ... lovely, Sumana :)
Our world is so filled with amazing things to see, smell, taste, and know. That child-like awe may carry us through the most difficult times, and allow us to know why we continue,Elizabeth
I was enthralled from beginning to end...I say wow a lot as I wonder at the world and all that happens, all we learn and so much we still don't know.Donna@LivingFromHappiness
Love how "so many times I said wow" is said so many times in this form. And the rhyming bow/wow works so well with it too as you mix the good, the bad and the ugly--as some simply have to sing their wow into oblivion! You, poet, sing the truth. I bow to you! wow!
Wow! This is wonderful - and extremely edifying. It sent my mind on a cosmic journey ... I haven't landed yet. Smiles.
Wonder should never just be the prerogative of a child. Take the wonder and the child throughout life. A lovely poem.
Great poem, the wonder at each stage as to what you saw, learned, read was well timed.
Wow, Just wow!!"So many times in this life I said, wowAll of them compelled my wonder to bow"...Absolutely, this makes the world so so beautiful!! Beautiful lines...sumana!
Sumana,And how many times we think we have truly seen it all; then amazement takes over, when another wonder is revealed..The joys of life never cease!Eileen
