Random Poem:

A thing of beauty isn't a joy forever to me.
Bhuwan

A thing of beauty
 1
isn’t a joy forever to me.
 2
I’ve never seen beauty
 3
dancing with the eternity.
 4
 
 
I’m not perplexed
 5
by the ecstasy of the beauty.
 6
I know it is not as beautiful
 7
as they think it is.
 8
 
 
I look at the world and ponder
 9
over the phenotype of the beauty.
 10
Beauty is not beauty,
 11
it is yet to be.
 12
 
 
No elucidation is possible
 13
of the beauty.
 14
If only the beauty could speak,
 15
I’d know what beauty is.
 16
 
 
I’ve my own world
 17
to live in- the world of generosity.
 18
 
 
Have you ever seen the sky
 19
running after the clouds?
 20
Have you ever seen the flowers
 21
running after the fragrance?
 22
 
 
A thing of beauty
 23
isn’t a joy forever to me.
 24
Even a thorn looks
 25
as beautiful as the rose to me.
 26
 
 
I’ve seen the thorn
 27
blossom into the rose.
 28
And the rose
 29
wither into the dust.
 30
 
 
A thing of beauty
 31
isn't a joy forever to me.
 32
A thing of beauty
 33
isn't a joy forever to me.
 34
