Treasure Island

Geetha Jayakumar

(Kerala Palakkad)

Broke my head!


Some poem were written on self
Some on others, or an imagination.
Some I wrote to draw the attention
Some I wrote as a question
Or an answer to some ones question.
One I wrote Without Thinking anything.....
And it land me into a WELL.
And not knowing
Which direction it went
I searched everywhere
For my poem
To which direction it went.
Well it reached to
Some unknown destination
Which I could never imagine.
Since I wrote without
Channelising it properly
Made me realise that
My poem can land this way too
Either a crash landing
Or safe landing
Or a parachute landing.
Or keep hanging on space itself.

But one thing is sure
It will surely land
But not sure where it will land
And on whose hand it will land!

Finally I landed along with poem
With a big crash and break my
Head for 3 days...

Writing a poem just took only a few hours.
But correcting and channelising it took
3 days by breaking the head through out the day!

    You have nicely described the birth of a poem. Sometimes after a poem is created, I think, where were all these ideas and words hidden. Let creativity flow. Let more and more poems be created. Thank you. (Report) Reply

    When I wtite it takes no thought
    for the words just come out at once
    There is just one copy in ink , the original
    there may be one word scratched out
    It takes only minutes to write, usually less.
    Then I forget about it, move on (Report) Reply

    We all know the feeling Geetha when the head is about to explode!
    Sekharan says writing a poem is simple, sometimes yes it is but not always.
    The main thing is not giving in, which is now my Mantra for life!
    Keep on going Geetha. (Report) Reply

    Writing a poem is so simple
    Correcting a poem is so hard
    Because poetry is
    Simple and hard as well (Report) Reply
