Lists come and go


Is it true, we can only love so much

That love is not a calling, but our prison

Is it fair, we face the weather in submission

That trees and rabbits can be an awakening to your vision

Is it a wonder, we are wanton in life

That deathbed is our place of strife

Is it right, we do not have to despair

That talking to rivers brings us home to care

Is it tiring, we wish for yet exhaust of travel

That moving is only stillness unraveled

Is it kindness, we bring to ourselves with age

That years just collect prayers for our own sage

Is it faith, we use to stoke a thousand fires

That moments of questioning, enable our deepest desires

Is it universal, we make an urge towards the dark

That realization about our inner flow is not just for the lark

Is it magic, we allow our brains what we want it to be

That wrestling with ourselves, allows roles to change

Is it curious, we let scripts define where we go

That writing a different story can help new perspectives

Is it perception, we become the mirror image

That fake is just a secret dwelling for pain

Is it poetic, we preserve elders in rejection

That ignoring those we should honor is our tragedy

Is it funny, we live in an elegant arrangement of life

That humor is just a generous way of self forgiveness

A list, mundane

Published by Kashiana

I am a management professional by job classification and a work practitioner by personal preference. One poetry collection - Shelling Peanuts and Stringing Words and a chapbook, Crushed Anthills. Always gathering poems, and letting them marinate and change shape and form.

One thought on “Lists come and go

  1. Questions and some replies by the poet like moving is only stillness unravelled,and is it poetic that we preserve elders in rejection are some profound thoughts which we do not reflect in the humdrum of daily life.
    The sensitive mind of the poet has poignantly projected these questions . Brilliant and beautiful .
