Shade and Shine

Bright though the tree appears to be, 

Only the top shines most blissfully

​The sun shines and down the light falls, 

The rays falling on this treetop, 

Bright though the tree appears to be, 

Only the top shines most blissfully


The rays pass through the spaces in between, 

Falling less and less on to the next line of branches and leaves, 

There is always shade beneath this tree,

And here is where the assigned spot is fixed for me 


Loved ones are happy and proud to see me

Surrounded by calm shade away from the heat, 

Looking, realizing, I silently blow away my innermost dream

To shine brightest standing at the peak. 


This is a feeble attempt to show that success is relative and depends from person to person.

    1. Hi, thank you for nominating me. I genuinely feel honored. However, my blog is just for the love of sharing poetic works, free from any tag, and so sadly, I can not accept this nomination. However, thank you once again :). Feels good to know my blog came in your mind when you thought of nominating. Smiling.
