Vapid

A Poem by Sami Khalil
"

Be inspired and inspiring to others. It will change your world and theirs...

"


Vapid/By Sami Khalil

Some offer nothing that is stimulating or challenging while others are inspiring in so many ways…



The wind stretches

The songs and fragrances

And there you are

Burdened by senses.

 

The wind stretches

The waves and tempests

And there you are

Tossed by crashes.

 

The wind stretches

Shapes and illusions

And there you are

Writhe in thoughts.

 

The wind owns its place and power

And you own the earth and science.

Then, why are you?

Utterly vapid!

Too Many are! and I bet they don't even give a thought to the wind except as a nuisance. Love this!!!

This is such a genuine question, all of us have to answer. A soft and powerful poem.

Feels weighty... Packs a heady punch within a small frame of space... Almost tinged with a bitter note... Fantastic...

Sami Khalil,
just as wind, waves- stretches- our minds and hearts-thoughts are meant to be stretched; to find strength and develop new perseverance. Nature is really our model of what it means to work, strive against what kills! Awesome write poet friend. blessings Kathy

Lovely concept. At times we are helpless against the odds.
Loved these lines:

"The wind stretches
The waves and tempests
And there you are
Tossed by crashes."

This is very nice. I love the concept of being burdened by senses, getting so lost in the minutia that we make no progress or contribution to the world around us.

I love this. Short, but beautiful. I especially love the line, "Burdened by senses", because we really are bogged down by all we hear, see, smell, taste, and touch.
