What If !!!

Poems are very special way of sharing our common feelings that bind the whole world together.

I wonder at times
what if
there were no seasons,
what if
there were no birds,
what if
there were no colors,
what if
there were no stars in the sky,
what if
there were no rivers and waterfalls,
what if
there were no flowers,
what if
there were no friends...
what if
there was no love
what if
there were no flavors

I think it is the wholeness of life in this universe that makes life such a wonderful experience! I feel at times that one moment of bliss is enough to give meaning to whole life despite all the sorrows as one drop of elixir is enough to render immortality, as one drop of honey is enough to take away the bitterness of gallons of bitter gall.

I would like to end it with a Haiku

‘ve been thr’u the flood
‘ve been thr’u the draught
Now look to thee my savior!

The thoughts of Albert Schweitzer

"Never say there is nothing beautiful in the world any more. There is always something to make you wonder in the shape of a tree, the trembling of a leaf. The deeper we look into nature the more profoundly we know that it is sacred and we are united to this life."

best wishes

Hi Bhaswati,

what if there was no poetry to share with others?

I'd be quite unwhole indeed! Thanks for sharing this perspective with us all and makes us remember all that we have to be grateful for.
