Reality

Don't you compare
The beloved
With a rose
Beauty of
The rose is
Ephemeral
It will wilt away
In a few days
And will touch
The ground
All shattered
Don't you call
The beloved
By the name
Of rose
You may call
The rose
By the name
Of the beloved
Let the beloved
Be the beloved
Nothing else
You leave
The old habit
And don't you
Compare now
start looking
At things
Simply as
They are

Real is Awesome

Why do you
Want touch the sky
How cruel it is
Ask the clouds
It strikes hard
With lightening
Till they pour
Themselves
All down
On earth
Touch things
Around you
Touch the earth
If you like
Peek inside the heart
Why do you wish
The moon for you
Lovely it looks
From far only
Why do you
Want to kiss it
Do you keep
The size and
The same measure
Go and have
Them first
The moon is
Mad after earth
So it seeks her

      Thanks Shanmarie. People make distances even after much interaction. I think, there is always something special to be appreciated in each guy. Thanks for your visit and kind comments.

      Real! Great message. The sky is blue; the grass is green. Very practical and grounded. Life's seemingly small lessons are important. Excellent poetry!!

      I guess if we look deeply enough we'll see clearly and appreciate everything as they are and stop trying to change what is...

      Different perspective and definitely thought-provoking. Everything has a special beauty all its own without comparison.
