Life

Life, a fleeting dream, warbling on meadows: A season of spring and season of snows; Sometimes in sunshine, sometimes in shadows, Joy of autumns and woes of wintry throes. And it journeys on, vying gleam of dawn Only to confront grief of fate forlorn: Of conquests lost, trepidations bygone, Of nightmares roiling reveries of morn; Lamenting goodwill that yesterdays tossed And despairs of hardships hurdles doled out Until bridge of life triumphant steps crossed, Where blossoms of success its prairies sprout. Where fruits of life on trees of acclaim grow Claiming winsome now, defeating sorrow, Lauding bliss sublime, free of grieving throe, Cherishing today and dreams of morrow. July 16, 2022 Placed 1st: It’s All About Three Q’s Poetry Contest Sponsor: Constance La France Theme: Life Rhymes: abab, cdcd, efef, ghgh (Rhymezone) Syllables: 10 per line (HMS.com)

for me this is line by line the beauty in life...that life is life and it is in each measure we grow, so these lines bring all that to life....cognizant acuity at its excellence...for every action the reaction and the depth and width by which we sail on is our story....the lowly blade of grass pushes out of the earth seeking the Light..and therein is the answer aptly put as you do

Hi Vijay life is beautiful and i hope it favors me with some years to come in order to enjoy our families and our lives in general, but it does throw us some curved balls sometimes, unexpected and unwanted - c'est la vie, i wish however that the ,very very rich filmstars sports stars etc would donate to the poor. great poem. Good luck in the contest Hugs, blessings Jennifer.
