Poetry is all around us.


Sometimes we write

poetry just by being alive,

sprawled on a

sun drenched rock,

the rhythms of life

flowing all around us

as we become a comma

in the hub-bub,

simply listening,

basking and absorbing

all the elements around us,

filling our soul

for the next battle

of wits over pen and paper.


We never walk

away from poetry,

we walk with it,

it is all around us,

and sometimes

we trip over it,

while at other times we run to

catch it before it's gone,

but it always comes back,

for we are it's voice,

in a muted world,

it needs us as much

as we need it.

Never abandon

the poet in you

let the poet

in you run free

with  wild abandon.

I wish that I could bring out the poet in myself as you do so well.

Dear Sir,


I indeed believe you...but your talent is rare. Poetry might be all around but not quite another poet like you.

I tend to be a poet too...but of much inferior grade and I really can tell from my own attempts.
