A Poetry Collaboration of Shahid Abbas and Elizabeth Esguerra Castillo
Poetry Affects Eternity
Poetry and sunset they go together,
For indescribable words cannot just be uttered
The moment you lay your eyes on
Such magnificent poetic beauty.
Poetry is the language of the soul,
Love, peace, brotherhood, justice, and harmony are its goal
The beauty which exists in every mind,
Reminiscing lovely memories each time.
I am the poetry I write,
The cool breeze brushing your cheeks
The humming birds in a dreamy meadow,
The howling wolf on a mountain peak,
What would be this world without poetry tomorrow?
Poetry is the love in ones’ heart,
I feel the universe and let it be my part
The image of nature,
Allows us to appreciate all creatures.
Poetry affects eternity,
Though the world is in uncertainty
The verses will be passed on,
Inspire many future generations
We live in the shadow of life’s poetry.
Poetry the core of the world,
The Universe exists in it’s every word
Which awake the dying nations.
A poet’s word lives forever,
The lyrics of his song will linger
A thousand years may pass,
But poetry’s legacy will last.
No doubt we will be forever alive
In the golden pages of literature,
The universe will read
Of the beautiful creations we have.
