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!

The reveal made me smile. Better than having a good rant - ouch yes

A nice flow of thoughts leading to a very good ending. I like the poetry that ends with a question. What we are. A question with many answers and possibilities. Thank you for sharing your amazing poetry.

i love this poem.

love the near rhyme, and the theme as i see it...with all that we are blessed with, how can we be so lacking in spirit...so well expressed here, Sami.
