Proud Blooming


Small Door of a Dream“, Jacob Glatstein

Those trees whose names I never learned
Identify themselves at the window
With their proud blooming.
The night shadows itself
On a small joyous lamp.
A silvered butterfly dances
Into our flickering life
Through light of a dream’s
Last moment.

        oh I thought it as yours …

      2. Nayana Nair says:

        Oh no 🙂 I don’t write that well. All poems written by me have my name mentioned in title only. For quoting someone’s work I mostly mention it within the post with the link. But such misunderstanding happen a lot 🙂

      3. calmkate says:

        lol I will read more closely next time, appreciate your honesty!

      4. Nayana Nair says:

        🙂 (I will also think of some better way to differentiate between these posts 🙂 )

      5. calmkate says:

        maybe bold up the top … you’ll work it out 🙂

  4. Such a beautifully elegant post!
