Common (Let the storm Pass)

Chill and let the storm pass
Or shed tears as it pierces your heart,
Move beyond the common acuity
Move on with your life, o deprived
Or cry and equal the common man.

Now chill, and let the storm pass!

1. Heads Or Tails! :
Week #83 : Common

  1. Ahhh.. I wish I could let most of my storms pass.

    Great writing. Thanks for playing again.

  2. Nicely done! I like the imagery and the wisdom in this short piece...

  3. It seems some storms never pass, but there are times when I can chill ... and watch it kick my ass!

    Tan you are really using your gift of creative expression, and it shows in this piece.

  4. No, there's no sense in lingering in pain. Chill! I agree.

  5. ok, well, thanks! all we can do here is to encourage others and read their work. indirectly, we are all working on a collaborative sort of giant project, don't you think so?
    and well, i am laughing now, coz this time i clicked on continue reading tab. and behold, it was still a 5 line poem!!!
    anywa, back to the point, this poem blows you off, in a way. as in, you have a choice to remain positive n hopeful or give into sadness and our lives get shaped up by this prime choice we make.

    ya, i will just leave all the comments i make even the repetitive ones. :)

    one Q- what inspires or moves you before you contruct such poems?

  6. Awesome !! i really needed this today .. thanks Tan ...

  7. Some storms are to be fought, some
    Tear us apart. Others, we let pass.
    Of the ones that we fight
    Reminds us of our strength.
    Many other remind us of ourselves.
    Such they are "storms of life"

    Everything teaches us something. It is upto us if we learn. Hope you are having a great vacation.

  8. It would be gr8 if storms cud pass easily but then..this is how life is.. we learn frm everythng..
    Nice job done here..

  9. "Jhor ke aami korbo meete
    dorbo na taar bhrukuti-te
    rekho naay ar
    bedho naay ar
    kuul-er kacha kachi, ami duub te raji achi"

    (i plan to make friends with the storm,
    i don't fear its ugly frown,
    only, don't keep me tied near the shore anymore,
    i am prepared to drown)

    Ans to your Q: Inspiration is a continuous process. My wife inspires me whenever I write love poems and stories - thinking about her. And for the rest of the lot, the things happening around me does the inspiration. I cannot tell you a particular thing or incident. I try to put a backdrop, but often, it is a group of incidents that inspires me.

    "Continue reading option comes in every post :( what to do?? How do I use it only on specific posts?? No idea ...

    Keep reading :)
