Being Poet

Updated on August 1, 2017

Alphabets on keyboard are laying static.
Thoughts are but,
extremely potent and energetic.

Holding on to a thought even for one moment,
is but,
a disproportionate act.

Like perfume in the air,
it lingers in my mind, yet,
sometimes is annoyingly mute and stagnant.

Putting words to my thought,
many a times is in fact,
a stalemate.

Many a times i type random words and alphabets,
yet,
they relate, make sense, how i know not.

As i write few more words new thoughts trigger,
that,
cascade over the older ones creating strong knots.

Suddenly it bereaves me between the lines as i write.
but,
in a flash wakes up, when i am silent.

By nurturing this crazy act day-in day-out,
I've felt like,
I have turned from a simpleton, to a poet.

      So very true nellieanna. Mechanized life or activity we all must try to fight.

      Yes. It's satisfying and fulfilling. It is unpredictable because it's about life, which is unpredictable. Predictability would not be desirable. It would reduce it to static form-keeping.

      This contains many nuances about writing poetry and becoming a poet, Hari! You've taken your readers down the uncertain and surprising path of it!

      I'm all smiles ...reading your appreciation..Yes.. when thoughts flow and are jotted down either becomes a poem for others or a archieve for retrospection.

      Lovely comment..Thanks.

      Beautifully written Hari! You have brought out the exact suffocation many of us go through to express our thoughts. And in the end..you have tapered it very optimistically calling yoursef a poet:)! Well done!!

      A simpleton creates magic of words by interconnecting them through thoughts, and vice versa. Poem is at intersection of rhythm,words and sentiments.Kudos to you Hari on Worlds Poetry day.

      absolutely true. I think the subject choose me, rather I choosing it. as I started writing, the intensity was quite high. words just fell in place.

      You have entered a world of words. That translate people's thoughts and actions into a series of letters and vowels. I love poems. Each poem tells a story that goes deeper than what we see on the surface. Layer after layer reveals who we are and our dreams, thoughts, needs and desires and so much more. Thank you for your inspirational poems. You have made my day .

      Kya baat hai! Hari, what an apt way to describe how a poet wrestles to extract thoughts! I had written somewhat similar to that topic - more like describing a poet penning down embedded thoughts.
