The Human Ark

Two by two they came

up the ramp of a fleeting life

the bitterly disappointed 

the blissfully burdened

the ardently amorous 

fingers entwined, twisted to intricate puzzle form

some with arms swinging with metronome unison

without touch

others looking behind with an uncertain air

halting momentarily

with slight domino sway


We stand on the pier 


“Should we pack anything?”

you ask


“No, we have all we need”


Then slowly up the gangway 

leaving our wide eyed unicorn

motionless on the shore

  1. Leaving all the misunderstandings, and disappointments, and all those things which doesn’t exist, moving on towards life.
    That’s how I perceived it, correct me if I am wrong.
    I loved it yet again ❤️

    1. Absolutely! And taking a chance that all you need is yourself, and one other to complement you. The unicorn left behind symbolizes unrealistic expectations though. Although I love unicorns! Thanks dear Priya ❣️❣️

  2. I was listening to music while reading your poetry on my phone, and even my most favourite pieces of music couldn’t sound as musical as your rhymes so I had to turn it off ❤
    The Human Ark is wisdom in verse! Love is all that lives on, immortal and inextinguishable! Everything else is transient.. 👏

    1. Can you imagine how these melodious words cascaded over me as I went about by day’s work? To imagine you there, allowing my writing to distract you from the music you enjoy …. you pay me the greatest compliments my dear friend and I am both overwhelmed and filled with happiness to read such heartfelt comments ❤

      1. It is me who was filled with happiness upon finding that I don’t need to put on my earphones to listen to music! A mere visit to Diana’s blog will suffice!
