nothing is eternal. not even the joys that i receive from the pretty flowers in my garden.therefore, i attempt to realize what i call the reality of natural phenomena.

Morning Flowers

All of you have come to my garden

I never went to invite
All the joys and pleasures that you have given
I mused in them in respite.
But when you go as going is certain
And beat me adieu loosing all the fragrance
I shall wait gaze and gain
The tearless truth of impermanence.
Thus, (while you live) the joys I receive
At death, insight they serve
I am afraid my emotion would deceive
And stray my path for love.

Great poem! True nothing is eternal in the world, but even after death, there's no end at all:)

yeah. it s an unending process. there is rebirth i believe in it too. of course because there r reliable evidences. but, indie do u belive that we can make an stop to all our births and deaths. i mean, 'i' or 'u' nothing. that may sound little complcated and stange but i feel there is a way to stop the cycle of our births and death. anyway, that wasn't what i really meant in my poem. my point is very simple - not to be attached or too much cling to beauty. if we do we will have to suffer. beauty is for appreciation which we all must do. but if that fades, for example the morning flowers, than we must try to accept the reality of nature. however, morning flowers is only an example. there r many more things that we meet in our life and hope not to lose. yet we have to.........

Upali Sramon:

Read this last night and gave it an "I Like It" vote, but no comment.

This is well written and expressed idea/s of transitory beauty and sensual pleasure. Better than none at all. Still! Never enough.

Thank you for becoming a new fan.

If you have not done so already, please read and rate my postings of "Love Intended: #1, #2 & #3", "Our Grampa Ed", "Excitement Inspired...." and "Self Love".

Again! Thank you!

Happy trails,

Ed Bradley.
