  • POEM: Alone in a Crowd by Akhtar Jawad (10/10/2014 6:45:00 PM)

    Loved this poem, I was carried by it in both ways could follow its wisdom and dance by its flow. Yes a bit sad indeed, wonder if it could be the otherwise for loneliness to bring the thoughts.

    What are the qualities of a good poem?"
    Good question, thank you! I suppose that each of us think and feel different
    and many people would endlessly contradict each other on this subject. Yet I would try to mention
    only a few qualities (as there are plenty from my own point of view) , feel free to have your own.
    -A poem that comes from the depth of a heart, provoking a dancing like motion of sliding the truth out.
    -A poem that tells a story or a thought in original drops.
    -A poem which ponder in the reader's mind or soul wanting one moment more.
    A poem that carry the mind away, inspiring new shades of white or black or gray.
    A poem that would make you smile or cry or laugh or push a soul to jump more high

    I have no idea if is legal, yet I would have to tell that I feel sad to know that you have given up on such a beatiful thing because of legal issues. Wish you good luck!

    Thank you for your post Mike, I think you are very right to question, I also wonder. Today we seem to create a lot of art but more often the artists themselves forget why they are doing it. We live in a world where entertaing tries to catch on everything. We seem to confuse art with television, isn't it?A movie may be made for the spectators, (unknown people) as well as a piece of theater, but a painting or a poem or a piece of music should come from the inside need, should be that unique moment when nothing else matters when you feel like you don't need sleep or food, you just want to get rid of the things that piles up on the soul.
    Now my turn to wonder: When we think that a dear one or dear people will read or admire our creations everything flows. Could that be such reason, because of having the heart to share with dear one or dear people or dear world everything flows?
    ..I am sure that if I would think of the sharp tongue of critics my pen would become as stubborn as a mule in not writing half a word (*_*) .
