Doubled Wonders

I want a ride to Banaue Rice Terraces
Each plane is a step to success
I might slip during my walks
But failure is a part of it.

I want a flight to the Leaning tower of Pisa
It is the best place to view perfection
The staircases my be countless
But the panorama's beauty reaches the sky.

I want a boat to the Nile of Egypt
It is a still river of a forever existence
The width might be measurable
But the length is an abyss.

I want a long march up to the Mount Everest
It was a zenith of bliss
The journey might be a shivering coldness
But my heart is a warm embrace.

An excellent poetic setting of contrasts and the Earth's spectacles. Especially well penned is:

"The width might be measurable
But the length is an abyss."

Nicely penned, poet!


I love the way you use antithesis throughout this piece. Its a charming poem! Charlie.
