A world full of treasures

Look out of the window girl

Can you feel the silky sunshine?

Can you see the tender leaves unfurl?

Can’t you see, all this looks so fine?

.

Just step out of your thoughts

And look at the ripe clouds in the sky

At the droplets adorning emerald trees

And the little brook, jumping, laughing, passing-by

.

Brave the frost bite my dear

Don your gloves and sweaters and rush outdoors

Ivory snow beckons, can you hear?

Come, ransack the frozen happiness stores

.

It’s your eyes that can see

This world so full of lovely treasures

Only your fingers can touch these riches

No one else can feel your pleasure………….

……………………….

My ode to the idea that only you can be a source of your true happiness. There’s no one and nothing else that can give you true happiness………..

    You seem to out do yourself everytime! The whole concept is so wonderful. The allegory is just the kind that is too good to be in a text-book!

    Karthik’s comment again:

    Loved ‘Come, ransack the frozen happiness stores’.

    Didn’t like – ‘Can’t you see, all this looks so fine’. Thought it sounded trite, and was put there to fulfil the self-imposed rhyming constraint.

    Sorry if I’m sounding too harsh here, but am trying to be more candid and critical now.

    Thanks thanks for the compliments…………..and Karthik, shall keep it in mind not to make the “rhyming scheme” THE guideline! 🙂

    I really liked ‘No one else can feel your pleasure’ :> Very evocative. Some three other lines make up the poem for me- the rest is almost secondary!
