Life itself

by alka mendiratta   Apr 21, 2015

The tiny glistening
Shiny leaf of the spring

Makes one wonder
A new life to withstand

the heat
the cold
the storm
the rain

Persevere in all conditions
Keeps supplying
the essentials
For mankind to exist

Rustling gaily in breeze
Giving shade to weary

Merges with soil
On getting old
Enriches same
Make it fertile

For the new sapling to emerge

    This is a very in-depth and thoughtful piece.

    I think the meaning of the piece is very deep as yes, we should carry on no matter what. Growing old is a part of life as we are making way fr the youngsters. I would like to think I am making way for my great grand children somewhere along the line..
    Life goes on but it's what we make it. A lovely, powerful message.

    There is depth in this message. Life itself is an inspiration on how it grows strong and tall through the seasons and storms then make way for a new generation. Mother nature inspires life in every way...liked this :)

    The absence of punctuation didn't affect the flow of the poem, neat structure and deep meaning.

    This makes me think of Ms. Sylvia's blog .. Haha :. Maybe because of the title (: Anyways, life is a cycle, what we reap is what we sow. When something ends, something will begin. That's life.
