Journey

Journey

A Poem by zainul
"

Journeys were like flower petals

"

Life moves with events of joy and pain

None can predict a time of constant pleasure

This may be compared with sunshine and rain

All such events together make our treasure

 

Some time ago went to a beautiful countryside

Enjoyed the flavor of paradise with dear one

Then started for home taking a rickshaw ride

Suddenly met an accident shattering my plan

 

My wrist was broken causing great problem

My fellow was terrified and started to scream

The brain could not find anyone to blame

A great flaw invaded into a pleasant dream

 

There was no scope to stop and lament

Something had to be done as quickly as possible

Rushed to a hospital for emergency treatment

Doctors declared the case was quite horrible

 

They stretched my hand to fix the bone

Great pain filled my eyes with tears

Doctors consoled me with friendly tone

And put white bandage and other gears


A captive life began with my tied hand

The power of writing was lost suddenly

Memories hovered around like flying sand

My mother’s face appeared frequently

 

It was a strange coincidence that fractures

Happened to    me and my beloved mother

I could realize after many many  years

How   broken bones compelled her to suffer

 

But,her case  was worse than my misfortune

She had to manage the whole family

She was compelled to work completely alone

Though it might be a cruel anomaly

 

I could rediscover my mother in my mind

Lack of her photograph gave me freedom

Despite our poverty she was very kind

Her thoughts and actions were uniform

 

Knowing about my passion in writing poem

She asked me to write on lovely sunbird

I selected many words and played with them

But failed to solve the challenge, it was so hard

 

The mishap took me to many hospitals

For my treatment and medical test

All those journeys were like flower petals

That enriched my experience offering the best

 

I met many patients with serious conditions

But they were quite patient and exchanged smile

I could learn from them how to control emotions

Overcome stress and adopt proper lifestyle

 

 My  parents left the world ending mission

We shall  have to follow them eventually

Let’s evaluate our past to define vision

And embark upon another life prudentially

My friend ... what you have done is perhaps written the poem your mother asked of you despite no mention of the lovely sunbird. Your writing just within this beautifully written poem that "kins' you to her through broken bones and pain IS PERHAPS that lovely winged one she asked you to scribe. Just a thought [smile].

You are obviously, to me, a quite talented writer/poet - articulate and, I would even suggest, genius in your craft.

A great read ... an inspiring maternal meme that even had my own memories flooding my mind with images of my mother...

flowers grow, flowers fall, people do the same...life is a journey of seasons...well expressed here---the little things in life becoming monumental, but also the big things being appreciated...or hurting the worst.
