Seize The Moment

Seize The Moment

1 min 147 1 min 147

"Row row row your boat

Gently down the stream"

Ensure the oars never

Shatter your sweet dreams

Ensure to avoid the whirlpools

Which suck you beneath

Allow your pen to flow

Create ripples of poetry

Not all will be appreciated


Not all can perceive it's beauty

"Rock-a-bye baby on the treetop

When the wind blows the cradle will rock"

Sometimes the wind blows

In your favor, words flow non-stop

Sometimes get stuck with writer's block

Fear not, for that too will pass

Light will stream in from the blinds

Of the bamboo screen slats


Magic will happen as you get along

Weaving a pattern-breaking norms

Artists are a breed by themselves

With their ebb and tide of thoughts

Seize the moment when the tide rushes in

Put ink to paper to scribble

Pick up the brushes paint a scene

And even if it remains incomplete

As ebb moments are sure to creep in

Winds will soon change directions

Words sleeping in the cradle

Will wake up; magic ink will scribble
