Being Poet

Updated on November 11, 2015
Source

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.

      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.

      thanks joselyn.

      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.
