Life – A Bubble In The Flowing River

Life   A Bubble In The Flowing River short poem

Photo by ActiveSteve 

Life and Death are like the
Birth and Bonding of a flowing River

While on Birth we sure cry
We fear when on death

Advancing of our Age is akin to the
blowing in size of the bubble in water

occurrence of death is similar
to the melting of the bubble.

Like the bubble melting and mixing with water
Human body gets decayed and buried in the soil

Flowing river ultimately reaches the Sea,
so also the dead will move into an unknown world

life is enjoyable liveable while death is inevitable, life and death beautifully portrayed…….liked the lines……..Flowing river ultimately reaches the Sea,
so also the dead will move into an unknown world……nobody knows where the departed soul goes but yes as long as life is there why thing about death!!!!!!!!!
a very philosophical poem indeed……..

A misbelief breaks into rags. Still I dream of some gods on black pages piecing together the words of light. The rains come in the cage of tears, voicelessly. Striated muscles of splintered faith go to cramps birthing the avatar
