a seed of hope

 the empty stare tells

that the half of soul has been broken

as twig which dries by the sense of longing

which falls on the land that barren by disappointment

the passion flies along the wind of remorse

leave the broken petals of love flower

which strewn on the mat of waiting

that has been shabby by the lament of suffering

now just a seed of hope that remains

hiding under the leaves that rotten by sorrow

let tears of sorrow to watered

until the flower of love bloom again

  1. Meiro,

    This poem is very effective in creating a mood, and in progressing through different elements of a living thing and essentials to life and growth, going from a dry, lifeless shape into a lush moist stage of possibility and renewal.

    Good work, all in an unusual syntactical style, which I am thinking perhaps suggests the difficulty the person in the poem experiences in going through the feelings and the process of change.

  2. “… she keeps her tear of sadness
    to watered the trunk of hope
    for then nourish the roots of trust
    until the flower of love bloom again”

    Tears watering hope to nourish trust … love the concept … beautifully written. Thank you for sharing!

  3. When we understand that we are all here to learn how to love unconditionally, and that we have a long way to go, we can understand better that the hurts and disappointments are part of the lesson. Your poem is touchingly beautiful. Thanks for visiting me, too. Hugs, pat
