Chances are...(2 poems) A philosophical and a romance poem. Two in one...First one is about taking chances in all walks of life. Second one is about second chances in love and faith.

Ventures/…………………BY Sami Khalil

Chances are…A philosophical and romance poem…

 

The Poem:

Chances are gifts..opportunities meeting preparedness..

Gifted to the venturers

The Argonauts who…

Glide, fly, float, swim and drown!

The persons who…

Are prepared for the consequences

The budding sprouts

The withering buds

The shifts, sways, swings, quakes

To heavenly abodes

To hellish places.

 

Chances are gifts

Gifted not to whiners

The idlers who…

Inhale, exhale, moan, groan and lounge!

The persons who…

Wait for maybe tomorrows

The false hopes

The hopeless rumors

The status quos, menial things, denials, self-centerdness

The curling spaces

The indecisive times.

 

 

Chances envision spring in the awakening of love impossible.

For I remember the days of our undefined courage, that mystical sway coming into full view.

What we have lost in love we found it in pain, in the shooting stars of flaming sorrow,

in the bankruptcy of fears when we cradled the moon in our arms only to lose it to gypsy spirits of stardust trails.

Still, we are the winners for tried our best,

in the winter wonderland of repossessions, where our spirits reached heaven,

for a second… chance.

One must take a chance to get a second chance; whiners are never winners.
A lovely poetic duo, Sami--elegant in style; rich in meaning.
Thoughtful and thought-provoking!

I can't explain how I missed this one. I look for your work as though searching for my wedding band.
You never disappoint Sami, never. I am pleased to say that every word, every idea cross the threshold of enjoyment and wonder.
