Seedling

Seedling

A Poem by Bilawal Gul
"

A seed starts sprouting and getting life back to this Earth after calamity war.

"



A terrain was so clear


No man, No animal, No bird’s chirp at all


Only thing present was


A dark fright, terrible silence in the air


And some broken lines of power-transmission


An appropriate place to bring the life back


Damp-breeze and optimal light


It is when a seed tears the soil


And let its root go inside


Curled up straight to lift a tiny bud


Toughen its stem to reach sunshine


How did it come to such finest milieu


That nourished it well and let it grew


It’s been a time, so long enough


A life came back into being


But the bud was dark instead of green


Its stunning shades are no more bright


As the dust has blocked its beam of light


It reflects the pain of brutal attack


Once had happened by the savage claque


It sounds the screech of little martyr


who cried for a mercy at every fire


It reflects the mirth of some patriots


Who felt so proud o’er blood-riots


All as sudden, clouds run away


Sun comes to its head and


Burns like the hell


A tiny bud couldn't bear it all


And burnt to die along windfall

This reminds me the history of Japan....twas the ruthless attack and still it's signs are vibrant....the whole concept is so wonderful here...I'd thought the bud will live and would bring greenery but the interpretation and moral you gave is actually better than that!...It's another great read from you...thanks for sharing☺!

My word! I was set for hope and rebirth,and instead... but dark or light, life or death, green or not; these feelings you invoke are real, sharp, and bright. Very evocative, and scathingly real.
