If you were asked to,
How would you describe the world?
Would you start with the blooming flowers ,
That flood the lawns with colors
Or the small forgotten herbs
with curing as its powers?
Would you start with the golden sunrise,
Delivering hope at the wake of dawn.
Or the ombre sunset sky,
Wrapping up the day, so long?
What about refreshing sand,
That your feet sink into with ease,
the salty ocean waves
‘nd like a lover how they tease,
Would you start with how rain
will always fascinate,
blanketing the earth with love
reviving, renewing up to date.
Would you forget to tell about
The taste of something sweet
Or the feeling that you get
When you see the color green?
How will you describe
What a waterfall feels like
Or how an eagle spreads its wings
For the most royal flight?
If you asked me, I would say
The world is charged with passion
With countless things to admire
For all these splendid things
Emerged, from a pyre.
