Once among a growing cluster
Can a flower bloom alone?
Will a single word not rhymed
still take on poetic tones?
Does a song without its chorus
soar in hearts, fill a home?
Can a single buzzing bee
pollinate without the swarm?
Will I write if no one listens
In our isolation?
The solitary bumblebee
seeks and finds the pollen source.
A melody alone can cause
a tear, a smile from lonely hearts.
While a single word won’t rhyme
another one will build a verse.
And single blossoms here and there
dot and beautify the earth.
And here, myself in solitude
I craft this poem without remorse.
“While a single word won’t rhyme
another one will build a verse.”
So gracefully written 👏
