A Cook And A Poet - Poem by Udaya R. Tennakoon

In the kitchen
Having with the knife
I know
I am a poet

In the note book
Having with the pen
Or the fingers with keys
I know
The difficulty of being
To be called
I am a poet

Things can be
Turned into creative for taste
Things to words
To be turned for taste
Still I am a poor

    One can be a cook and a poet and at the same time.
    A poor poet is rich in understanding.
    Good cook takes scraps and turns it into exquisite dinning
    A good poet sees the most mundane and twists it into a Rodan.
    All poets are proud of there poor humble beginnings. (Report) Reply
