Only if.....

Only if...
We could make the colors
of the butterfly
on a pallette.

Only if...
We could steal
the whiteness
from a little
snow flake.

Only if...
Dreams would
not be opium for the mind,
then setting free
would not be
tagged a crime.

Only if...
The rain drops could pause
for a while,
I could just taste some.
Keep the pure and sweet.
Let the bitter fall to ground,
meet the earth in a kiss.

Only if...
An instrument existed,
that created the sound of the
rustling leaves,
could make us believe.

The world would cease to exist!
Let some time.
Nature mock man.
Perhaps we would not let it
Only if...
The world would be
a little less complicated.

  1. a heartfelt wish...replicated...everything in its total sanctity...pure and natural as it can be...

    true inspiration and true wonder cannot be recreated...its a single occurrence and more often than not it isnt man-made! :)

    Loved the flow...the thoughts and the theme...metaphors again take the cake. beautifully done! tc! :)
