Among the masqueraders saw you standing sad,
Thought you were one of them so I wasn't glad,
But times unfolded and proved much wrong,
Happy to see you unmasked now for so long,
Childishly you peek from behind the bough,
Exuding brilliant colours like a rainbow…..

Poet's Poet for a reason at least on love. Superb
hey! i'm new to this site can u check my peoms?
This poem reminds me of ancient Upanishadic lore of two birds on a tree. While one our outer self enjoys all the fruits of pain and pleasure our soul looks on be holding us calm and quiet. Ancients wrote with reverence about nature's play. Spencer finds same play frustrating. Enjoyed this version too. closer to our reality!
damn these stony women.
Beautiful piece, well written!
