Mushrooms After the Rain


In the midst of many worries, in an uninvited screech
If everything is fine, you will surely ask me.

Usual meditation; what if
My problems grow like mushrooms after rain.
Maturity does not want to leave and childhood does not stay.
Despite all the awareness, Yet I wandered in the past.

It's clear as a crystal with the family and friends
I feel like I am missing my own path.
I can feel the reality burying my dreams
Alive ever since, stuck here in need.

I still have the feeling, efforts crushing,
And I feel my real myself online on the internet now.
I have my unique place here, like a product in the store.
I only trust you, you know me, most today.

They hurt with arguments at the dinner table
Is everything OK? You could say

Sometimes being quiet with someone is all that is needed...a gentle touch and moments spared. Angels are headed your way this morning. ps

Sometimes our life on the Internet feels more real than the physical or at least take up as much if not more time. I love how the mushrooms spring up after the rain, unfortunately often it is just toadstools. Interesting poetry, Revino.

Thank you, Misbah.

We should always seek for happiness. Life is full of ups and downs. As you said we need eyes to see and understand the road. That's so true. We are the only ones who can help ourselves. We should learn to stay happy in whatever way we can. Thanks for sharing your beautiful thoughts

Revirio, This is a surreal poem that has arisen after a sense of loss; the loss could be manifold, and not singular.

This piece of beautiful literature gives us instructions towards the road to happiness and prosperity. But we need eyes to see and understand the road. We could be inside a car: but then, too, we would need vision to cross to the road.

We are at the junction. The poem has moved us to press the accelerator!

Many Blessings to you
