This is a collaborative poem that has emerged from the ideas of eleven Wikinut poets.

A poem conceived by collaboration

An effort was made to make this poem happen. I requested the Wikinut authors to post their poem lines as comments to my previous page. And this collaborative poem was contributed by these eleven Wikinut poets: (1)Rathnashikamani, (2) snerfu, (3) Sivaramakrishnan A, (4)Delicia Powers, (5) Stella Mitchell, (6) Mariah, (7)Phyl Campbell, (8) Erly, (9) Maria Malone, (10) ORourkeDesigns and (11) Rathna

Pearls of Compassion

Tears are pearls of compassion!
Who can hear their pitiful commotion.
They drop down drop by drop
They stoop to droop and stop (Rathna)

Slick as the clock that heralds the dawn
Quick as the night that slips past unseen till morn (snerfu)

A world without compassion
Will be a place of desolation (Sivaramakrishnan)

Silent tears from the well of the heart flow...
Tears seeking rivers of empathy- humanity's soul. (Delicia Powers)

They are weightless - and yet -
they have the power to break the strongest heart ... (Stella Mitchell)

A mother’s tears for the death of her son...
as He bowed His head with the words "it is done"..
with fallen tears from heaven..
the earth was truly swept
vast oceans emerging as the angels wept. (Mariah)

But - Joy of joys, when He had risen - free from pain,
And entered the Heaven, where tears're never seen again. (Stella Mitchell)

And as we wait for Him to come again, the tears flow free.
Compassion. healing -- fresh pearls for the sea. Phyl Campbell

I thought the poem has ended there. But not so.
Then, some more lines have been added later on.

Beads of emotions

I think these stanzas can also be fitted within the above poem. But how?

* * *

Life is like a drama always in commotion
No other reason and intention except deception
Wanting and wanting anything and laugh for the accomplishment
Time won't refrain the same scene
Actors feel the pain in struggling conscience... (Erly))

At nature's first diversion
A quest for answers may never come
Rather time changes all
Beaded together like a strand of rosary
Prayers to help quiet the noise
And find beauty in chaos
While an emerging rainbow
Follows the storm.... (Maria Malone)

That is one thing I could never do...
and the few times that I have, was under a broken heart... (ORourkeDesigns)

* * *

I once again request my poet friends to suggest whether we can just append them in continuation to the above poem or we can insert in between some of the lines.

As I cleansed and healed,
Tears I wiped.
Not telling anyone,
How Stomach griped.

As they laughed aloud,
At my tears of pain.
As I stood up once more,
To live again.

Breaking all to silence,
Under wintry strife.
I pulled new leaves,
As ended all strife.

Bring the Magic,
That Broke all Above.
For I Am who I am,
The Anthem of love.

Hey Rath..this is just a wonderful idea, the post so far is lovely, so I'm with you on continuing with this and hope everyone will join in again
I would like to add my next contribution following Siva's words if may...
Siva...'A world without compassion will be a place of
desolation'..
Mariah...'Let us open hearts to our brothers and sisters
Let us not be instrumental in aid of hate's creation'..

Hello Mariah, your poems are always beautiful.

Those two new lines make a start for another poem I think, you can invite the Wikinut poets to contribute their verse.

Thank you and Namaste!
