A Poem by zainul
"

Sitting like a statue will be treated as a crime

"

Do you remember the tough time of the island,

Where crisis was regular feature of everyday?

How the sea turned rough and kept us frightened,

How the sky looked gloomy like the doomsday?

 

Paradigm has been shifted to everywhere now,

Strange curse has seized most human habitation.

Happiness has flown away from the ship’s prow,

Skilled sailors shed tears in severe frustration.

 

Despite such fearful state we braved journey

Along the waterway with a gorgeous boat.

We enjoyed green mangrove and dolphin spree,

We were amazed to see fishermen float.

 

Once saw waterspout on a cloudy afternoon,

It spiraled to the sky when tornado was roaring.

The night sky was once illuminated by lovely moon,

Once rainbow colored the sky while it was raining.

 

Can you recall how excited we became seeing the hill,

After crossing the violent sea in a ragged vessel  ?

Do you wonder how all friends retained zeal ,

While singing along moonlit glade without any hassle?

 

I'm worried now, what to do at this suffocating time.

The wheel of life is about to stop at any moment.

But sitting like a statue will be treated as a crime.

Hence let’s approach wise people for comment.

You were so fortunate to witness all these scenarios, even though some were rough, there was something spectacular. We came and we must go. But as long as we last, seeking happiness, love and blessings would do miracles.
Thank you for this and especially for the rhyme, I feel much joy in reading that! :)

Dialogue and discussion are the need of the day. Its understood that the times are very troubling and the crisis is unprecedented. Yet, this is no time for wilting and fading away. We must handle and overcome the shock and try to rise above the situation. This is what sets us humans apart and places us at the top.

I love the references you make to the past, when greater and bigger calamities and scourges threatened to undertake us and how gracefully we overcame them with simple faith and fortitude, all the while enjoying the beauty of life all around us. We must go back to that time and draw courage and inspiration from our predecessors.

An unforgettable poem with great rhyming and wording. Appreciated very much sir. Kudos.

i think the sea is too calm with no ships upon it...the waters of interaction are deathly quiet.
There is still beauty, but viewing it from behind portals....not the same.
