Attempt

 

 

Attempt

quivering voice torn into pieces
jammed words dashingly sealed
tongue-tied feelings suppressed
a power uproars
whispered unto thyself
acclaimed thy heart
longing to blaze
conformed thy faith
declared thy attempt
to bestow equity
thy affectionate feeling
to love
forever

My lovely daughter Allana took this photo some time ago. I promised her I’d write a poem about rainbow; but I haven’t written one yet, until today. Well technically it’s not about the rainbow, but they say “there’s always a rainbow after the rain”. And I realized that every opportunity or attempt to do something whether for our family, our friends, ourselves is a chance to recognize that rainbow. Sometimes, we struggle to accomplish something, we give up easily on life, on love. Why? Because we failed to recognize the simple fact that rainbow only appears after a terrible rain. In life, we have problems, we have difficulties and in love, we have worries, we have concerns and we have fears, these are our “heavy rains”, our “storms” and sometimes, the “wind” that will blow our faith and topple us down. But remember, “there’s always a rainbow after the rain”.

May we all enthusiastically wait for the “rainbow” to come. Meanwhile, we should never give up. Never give up on life and on love. It will come in time and when you needed it the most.

And, as we are all facing the worldwide crisis and threat of the virus COVID 19, may we all keep our faith and believe. Believe that this too will fade away.

Believe in the rainbow.πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›

  2. I love that you used the pronouns thy and thyself in this piece. It’s a small detail, but it gives it a special feeling, like a blessing handed down from one’s great grandparents.

        Affected areas usually are the urban cities. One good thing here is that most schools and universities are situated outside the capital.

    Yes…There’s a calm before the storm
    Then a storms drenching rains
    After the passing storm
    Quietly and calmly, a rainbow glows again

    your poem was exquisite and so was the narrative on the rainbow. Rainbows are also promises, that after hardship there will be better times, we just need to wait out the storm, so beautifully expressed in your words. Allana has a good eye for scenery Mich.

    I always remember the colors by Roy G Biv; red, orange, yellow, blue, indigo, violet… yet too often the rainbow color indigo is left out. There are of course many other shade variants with in. I always found it interesting that the same rainbow is seen differently by two people – it is because of the angle of the eyesight. I’m lucky to have captured a few rainbow photos.

    And double rainbows are treat too. May we continue to look for and find the cure for this ‘new’ virus. So many venues have been closed now to prevent the spread. Just yesterday I heard that the college basket ball finals were going to take place without fans in the stands.

    Check your email I’ll try and send you one of my favorite rainbows that I was able to capture.

      Rainbows always fascinates me. I’d stop the car whenever i see one.

      My home country has just locked down the main city. And people are panicking. I just hope we really do find a cure for this.
