A Poet! Poem by Geetha Jayakumar


Who is a poet?

A poet is the one who is full of emotions
Who can feel each emotions
feel each surroundings,
Which has to pass thru him
Before It is put down on paper.
Words carefully selected
Clarity in conveying the message
Choosing correct message is important.
The reader should be able to
understand the message hidden in the poem.
Emotions very well expressed.
Makes the poem well read.

Poet is the one who can switch on
To different emotions and characters in no time.
Poet is the one who play with the words
So fluently like a person playing a flute.

Poet is nothing but the director
Who direct words in mind.
All the roles and characters are played by him only.
He choose the location mentally.
And put each character in paper.
Here script, story, action, direction and editing.
Everything he frames in his mind.
And a beautiful poem is the outcome!

Poet is the one, who is all in one.

    A poet does many things at a time.... he is director, script writer and editor- all rolled in one! He plays with emotions and puts them into well aligned words that he is able to take his readers to different realms of fancy and imagination! You have given a beautiful definition to the poet and briefly summed up his roles! Enjoyed the poem! (Report) Reply
