  • POEM: As Mostly We All See by Amitava Sur (5/26/2014 7:17:00 AM)

    This is a heartfelt realistic poem reflecting upon life and some of its cruelty, But we are also blessed for being provided with beautiful tokens of creation! Trees, for me, for example are a magnificent source of inspiration! I have also enjoyed your simile/comparison while mentioning the leaves of the tree, when they are green and when they are grey...
    Thanks very much for sharing it, Amitava!

    Dear Poemhunter Team,

    I've heard this is the last day for the Poetry contest. I would appreciate very much if You included my poem " To Love & Poetry" .
    This is just a way of sharing with other peers or novice poem writers. In the process we all have fun and surely can learn something
    from each other, our own cultures and views. Thanks in advance!

    To Love & Poetry

    Dwelling in the realms of verse
    Protected by God's Mercy
    Love speaks in a way diverse.
    It pays homage to courage,
    Inner strength, soul pilgrimage!

    It echoes chants, holy and pure,
    Descending upon us quietly
    Strengthening days to endure.
    It stays in little gestures, cheerfully
    Feeding our lines delightfully.

    This immense ocean of poetry
    Allows it to deeply immerse into
    Waves of sweetness and mystery.
    Herein a lighthouse was seen
    We'll linger over it for good, serene.

    Dear Sir, Mehta Hasmukh Amathalal

    I've just read your beautiful poem wherein a substantial content is revealed, highlighting Poetry, Art and Melody.
    In my view, Poetry is a noble Art one has to cherish through feelings and emotions felt. Art may be visualized Poetry.
    Both are are intertwined and convey powerful meanings.
    Good Luck!
    Best regards
    Maria

    Well, if you have an idea, a favourite topic or something that has really impressed or shocked you, try and express your feelings and emotions about it. Sometimes you feel that a lovely sentence conveys your thought. Then, start from that point and you'll see the thread being shaped...
    By practising you can see some progress.But... never stop reading poetry!
