Balance

 

I dread the fierce claws

Of your words-

I retreat-

I have no wish

to slay a dragon-

I don’t mind

embracing defeat-

the full moon smiles

at the crashing

tidal waves

and goes beyond

  1. Victory isn’t measured by the number of blows that you land (physically, mentally or verbally), but by the ability to dodge them. As your poem, Sumana, so elegantly shows us.

  2. I never read anything I dread, No point. Words are lethal weapons and can maim.I can’t imagine anyone writing anything awful to you. You are not the type of person who elicits that kind of a response.Slaying dragons takes energy. Energy wasted when you could be crashing about in the tidal waves in the moonlight.

Thank You :)
