A Bee

Poem By Mohammad Akmal Nazir

Hovering around the flowers,
It sucks the juice and converts it
Into honey,
What a loss!
What a profit!

Comments about A Bee

Life is all about give and take! Nature often destroys to create; the balance continues to be conserved!
The antithesis perfectly puts forth life's wonderful game... precisely phrased! ! !
A well crafted and poignant write, my dear friend but must capture the real message, life is a two ways street and fortunately I learned the hard and painful ways, like I said in my poem titled: IN THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS, that whenever there is an ending there is also a new beginning and what we think is a great loss, it turns out to be a blessing from the sky and it is time to move on! Love and Peace for always, my brother, my friend! Love and Peace for always! ...
i can't add much more than the comments of your other readers. nice concise juxtaposition of profit and loss
An amazing and clever view of two situations, a lost of the nectar for a flower, and the honey, a benefit for us, the humans. Great ideas in simple deep words..Cristina Teodor

*a Humble Complaint*

You could have been more polite observing me,
Your harsh words have left
An indelible impression,
Hatred can be won by love alone,

A Busy Street

Shameless, nude always invites
To outrage her modesty,
Smooth and grey
who would not be


The blow was very cruel,
The bud could not blossom,
It died underneath,
And who cares?

*a Farmer*

Clad in shabby dress, stinks sweat,
A churlish who works day and night
In the field,
To speed up the pace of progress,

A Bitter Truth

The life will remain the same,
You will remain the same,
They will remain the same,
The world will remain the same

A World Of Treason

Let's see the world with an open eye,
And take it as a bivouac not destination,
Its love is false and nature sly,
It's an obstacle in the way of emancipation.
