A Poet And Love - Poem by Khairul Ahsan

The Mississippi-Missouri may dry up one day,
But not a poet's heart. Streams of unrestrained
Feelings continually meander through his mind.
Though, not always, may they produce a poem.

Love, or lack of it, manifests in a poet's works.
If he has known love, he soothes the parched
Hearts of the lovelorn with a sprinkle of it. If not,
His yearnings beat the cry of a lonely, distant dove.

    The Missouri River is dear to me since I reside in Missouri. It is a grand and friendly river, providing relaxation and enjoyment for many people, And now it has contributed to a grand poem from Khairul's pen. How proud I am to be near this river that has inspired this beautiful poem! (Report) Reply

    So sad is sometimes, a poet's love. But it is so true, the heart is always feeling whether translated into poetry or not.. Beautifully said and felt.
    Yes, Feelings come and Feeling go,
    They enrich the heart, of that
    A Poet really knows.
    And your tremendous sensitivity,
    Is what your writings, Always show,
    Thank you for another wonderful heart beat. (Report) Reply
