Humble Praise for the Simple Rhyming Poem
When I came across you
My fellow Hubber, AttemptedHumor has been writing beautiful poetry on HubPages. I follow his work earnestly, he is simply maestro of rhymes. The most special thing about his poetry? It's simple. The magic it creates is beautiful, yet simple. The smiles which he spreads are many in number, and yet, all his work is not complex, it's simple. Simple to understand, but that said, each simple rhyme he creates has a subtle effect. A subtle message. So don't get misguided and take the simplicity for granted.
I read his poem - 'A Simple Rhyming Poem', and I was so delighted. Not just because it was, as usual like his other poems, wonderful with rhythmic rhymes, I was delighted because this poem contained a special understated reflection of it's creator. It kept on saying, 'I am simple, I am hollow, I lack beginning and end'; and I could feel how beautifully it portrayed the real self of the down to earth amazing creator.
I had no choice, just had to write this poem. And I would recommend you first read his poem, to be able to appreciate the delight that I felt after reading the subtle simplicity and the joy that I've attempted to express in my poem. It's not a reply, but a rejoinder to my feelings for simplicity - it's charm, it's beauty. I'm grateful to him for his creation, since it inspired me to create.

Simplicity Painted by Nature
For The Rhyming Simple Poem
A Tribute to a Simple Creation.
Hi simple rhyming poem,
It was really nice to meet you,
And t'as not for saying's sake,
It's actual pleasure to greet you,
You're as light as beautiful feather,
You touch and bring a smile,
The charm of yours is irrefutable,
You send worries to exile,
Riding on the breeze always,
You can't be downhearted,
Your arrival uplifts spirits,
Frowns n faces are parted,
You are just like a circle,
With no beginning or end,
But so shapely, so complete,
Without any complex bend,
The hollowness is vital,
How else will echo go on?
You leave all the fronts away,
Honest acceptance you don,
That many try to say big things,
And try to impress the people,
That being weighty might be something,
But it's more difficult to be simple,
You're tarnished brass, it's solid,
Not deceiving like a bubble,
You've your creator's reflection,
You are simple, and really subtle.
Simplicity is such a bliss...
The beautiful quote by Tagore teaches us but one thing -- Simplicity is not something you should take for granted. No matter how subtle it is, it is very difficult to achieve.
It is so simple to be happy, but it is so difficult to be simple.— Rabindranath Tagore
I hope that I could keep the soul of simplicity alive in this poem while honouring the creator of the piece which inspired the creation of this one.
So here is the subtle wish for the readers -- I simply wish you to be happy in spite of difficulties.
