tears of an angel

tears of an angel

A Poem by poddar kushal

Tears of an angel

------..--------

Winding up his wings

He sits on the steep end of the temple

The angel.

 

Down there people,

People touching

The marvels of ancient carvings,

People praying and wanting this and that

Everybody has his own hunger.

 

The eyes of the angel cloud.

Hear, the salt of the water,

Genesis of an ocean is always

By an angel’s tear.

Sigh, this is very sweet, being an angel is not necessarily as easy job. Mx

I love poems with beautiful imagery and this one definitley has it. I could see that angel sitting up high looking down on the people and fel all the emotions that were running through him.

Again, a simple and elegant masterpiece. You impress me.
I tend to be wordy, and greatly admire those who write something deep and profound, yet brief and simplistic.
Bravo.

I loved the last two lines of this. Very emotive! As for the rest of the poem, you've got an enthralling concept as well as the implied imagery of lamentation, but it needs a little work on structure and rhythm. Working on those things, I think, will give it some flesh and blood. Then again, what do I know? I find mis-strokes in the Mona Lisa and grammatical errors in Shakespeare.

"Winding up his wings:...this tells me he is anticipating a long sit, perhaps to take it all in...readying himself for the crying he knows will come from studying man and all his greed and flaws. This poem immeiately reaches out and grasps your heart strings.
"Everybody has his own hunger." how very true- sad thing is, everyone seems to believe his own hunger is more demanding more relentless more important than anyone else's
