Nithya Venkat enjoys writing about nature and different aspects of life in the form of poetic verses.
Brenda Arledge has given the word prompt "Experiment" for Word Prompts Help Creativity-Week 37.
Brenda is a dear friend and a wonderful poet. She inspires us with her word prompts every week and helps us, writers, to put pen to paper and let our imagination fly.
This poem is in response to the word prompt "Experiment". Thank you, Brenda, for inspiring me to write.
What is an experiment?
Dictionary.com defines an experiment as a “test, trial or tentative procedure; an act or operation for the purpose of discovering something unknown or of testing a principle, supposition, etc.”
Experiments can also refer to what we do in day-to-day life to find out what will happen if we do this or what will happen if we do that.
So many decisions to say yes or no, to choose or not to choose, to do or not to do and the list goes on.
Life is like a maze and we have to find our way to reach the final destination. On our way we have to experiment, we have to choose, and find out the outcome of our choices.
Life is full of experiments and we have to find out the right ones and choose the right combination of factors that will influence our lives and guide us to the right path to reach our ultimate destination.
Experiment and make your choices. Choose wisely.
Do not be afraid to live.
Experiment-You Will Find Out
What is an experiment
It is trying something new
What is an experiment
It is something that you want to do
Wondering what the result will be
Wondering what will be new
You may be surprised with the outcome
Or disappointed too
It is a heady feeling
Just waiting for the result
Trust me; it can be surprising
But be sure you can work it all out
In chemistry, you can mix chemical compounds
That bubble, fizz, or froth
In physics, you can use lenses and prisms
To demonstrate the spectrum of light
Or experiment in biology
With a flower or a seed blown out of sight
So many experiments for you to try
To choose can be a difficult task
Experiments to learn and know more about
Is the routine textbook stuff
You have the questions and the answers
In the same subject book
All you have to do is look and search
Learn to find the clue
Nothing can compare
To the experiments of life
They will blow you away
Life will throw curveballs at you
It will be tough to find your way
To choose or not to choose
It can be a mind-boggling task
To place your heart out on a sleeve
To risk going all out
Life can be fraught with pain and anxiety
With many ups and downs
But the sweet moments will call you out
So live life and have fun
Open your heart let the light in
See what life is all about
It can be exciting and filled with adventure
You will learn without a doubt
What is life if not trial and error
Experimenting to find the outcome
As we live and breathe today
You will know and be wise in the long run
