Crane

Crane by deadpoet88

~*~*~

With the Crane came happiness,
And sunlight dissolved the darkness
That had permeated deep into the soul.
The warmth crept up slowly,
Taking away the numbness inside,
And with it the melancholic echoes.
The silence it brought lingered on,
Like peace after a great storm,
And no chaos was left anymore.
This Great Crane, this wondrous bird,
Flew into my heart without a word,
And with it, came the essence of life.

  1. nicely done, to use crane to represent understanding of life’s essence is wonderful, it goes well with the meaning of crane “to stretch so as to see better”

  2. And no chaos was left anymore.
    This Great Crane, this wondrous bird,
    Flew into my heart without a word,
    And with it, came the essence of life.

    A lovely, melodic, emotionally sagacious sentiment. Thank you.

  3. … and with the crane came the light in her eyes and the butterflies in her heart! Let it be like this for a very long time! It’s lovely Sonam, you’ve said so much in a very few words!

  4. I love the light tone of the poem and how symbolic the crane is. I’m glad it came into your life and gave your life an essence. (:

  5. “The silence it brought lingered on…” I enjoyed this line. It reminds me of a Crane that came to visit a flood plain near where I lived. Crane stood partially in the flooded meadow grass and partially on the grassy bank, half in sun and half in shade. What struck me was its peaceful existence in water and on land. A very graceful bird.

  6. Amen to that, Sonam!
    Beautifully illustrated… and the photograph you’ve clicked absolutely complements your words… the combination had a very soothing feel to it…
