Regatta of wishes – a poem

A tug of war…

Between the silhouette of past,

And the future….

How long this will last?


Few chained larva…

Green was the dream they live on,

Past is the karma….

Future yet moves for a Chameleon.


The colors to change fast

Chameleon is the mood deep within,

Palate on rainbow last

Jargon of silhouetted past does akin.


The tug of past to future

Present is dream behind the palette,

Chameleon of larva nurture

Riot of passions fly a new Spring relate.


Butterfly of wish to born

Beyond a sky to paint rainbow saga,

Green pasture of light torn

Future is the Chameleon regatta.


The silken regatta of legacy prevail

Tugs of war yet remain,

Sweetness to the dreamy smoothness

With bitterness deep within.


Never free and never was chained

Never was the dream so veined,

No rule and the sail of dream winged

Larva of wish is a butterfly so sailed!!!!!

      Dear friend Faith...your continuous inspiration is much valuable for me....Yes you are rite the conflicts in mind and the tug of war between the memories of past and the dreams of future is something that we can not deny. Though we know well that we have to look forward to future and forget the past and live in present ....its not always so simple and easy. Thank you once again...your votes and shares are much appreciated for always...take care and God bless you

      Beautiful analogy & a wonderful way to express life with Karma ....comparison & resemblence to the creatures of diffrent traits with various phases of human life is so effective, so true.. that not only it gives a Class to this splendid piece of work but reflects the mind set of poet that how deeply she dives into the ocean of life & feelings definitely ! ....Kudos Deergha!!

      I enjoyed how you compared our lives to that of a butterfly's and the development from larva to the fleeting butterfly. Interesting and very creative in your presentation. The mood and colors all blend in mind and on canvas. Thank you for sharing. whonu

      Very clever as to that "tug of war" of the past and the present. Although, we can never go back, we seem to do so a lot in our minds.

      Voted up ++++ and sharing

      God bless, Faith Reaper
