Gratitude

Spring is so redolent and ineffable !

So myriad are flowers and bewitching,

Their hues penetrate into my mind,

My soul gets drenched in splendor !


I love spring and all flowers,

And love my eyes seeing all bliss,

I Love my breath savoring smell,

And I cherish my own existence !


But I ignore the Sun and his light,

That infuses life in the blue sky ?

It is light that gives worth to eyes,

All beauty shines in the lap of light !


I ignore the wind that blows selfless,

How she caresses beings with love,

She is the breath and she is the life,

She brings up fragrance to each soul.


How she picks up all nectar !

To enter in my heart to cheer me,

All blossom and the wind smile for me,

To know it, a real happiness and bliss.


The Sun, the light, the wind are for me,

And Mother Nature ever effervescent !

I cherish spring and colors all around,

Does a word of love arise in me ?


For the perennial Sun,affectionate light,

The billowing wind and the dulcet Nature,

So, today with all my heart and soul,

I say with all gratitude " I love you all ".

      If you expand your comments more and add some spices ( similes and metaphors ) and polish it like a raw diamond is treated, your another poem is ready and it would be about your wonder at creation of poems. Isn't it interesting ? Kevin, we are not supposed to be very distinguished scholars while being busy in this fantastic craft, only some creativity is needed. Reading along with writing poems is an ideal combination to refine this art. I love this beautiful art of words.

      I am writing poems not knowing what they mean. I am talking about poetry not knowing what I am saying when I think about it. Somehow it is coming from inside me without me knowing. Perplexing.

      Kevin, your curiosity is quite right. I myself was very skeptical of poetry when I was not myself in it. I also went through a lot of literature about it to know the nitty gritty but I found out that there are no fixed rules about the essence of poetry. In this poem, I referred to Sun and Wind as he and she respectively, my sole aim for it was to convey a feeling of more closeness to them as we humans feel for each other which could not have been conveyed if I had used 'it' for them. Though books tell a lot about how to proceed with poetry but reading poetry of myriad poets fairly fetches some idea of it. It is like saying to someone who has won some prize in any competition that "he has won the whole world" instead of simply saying "winning a prize". So, in a way, poetry is saying something in a very uncanny , bizarre and outstanding way that is capable of triggering a wonderful, exciting and unique emotion in one's mind. You yourself has penned a very curious poem and how could I forget it's very strange imprint in my mind. Though I am not an expert in this field but as fas as I know it from my experience, I am all willing to share it with you.

      Harishprasad,

      I was not saying to change it, I just wondered to make sure that I understood correctly. Since I am not always clear on poetry yet.

      Kevin, I'm glad that you liked this poem and appreciated it. As for using 'the', even after going through a lot of literature about the use of this article, I sometimes place it in the undesired place, English being a second language to me. So, I might have made some mistakes in using this article in this poem too. However, once I complete writing a poem, I read it aloud and if the rendering goes well and there exists a good rhythm and beauty either because of putting it or omitting it, I resort to that. As a friend, if you suggest some wise moves about use of "the " in this poem, I would be all willing to go for it. Thank you very much.

      It is beautiful Harishprasad. I love it. Thumbs up and straight across (minus F) plus shared and Pinned. It also made me wonder why you call everything 'the' - except 'Sun' is he and 'wind' is she?
