I posted a poem thinking of someone.
My poem reached another one.
He took it differently.
Some one took in other way.

I got reaction of poem in an unexpected way
Overall a confusion played a good role
In the poetic field.
Then a sequence of poem played its role one by one.
Finally someone misunderstood me.
Some got angry too.
I forgot to write my poems as I was busy to read others poem.
To see what they are speaking.
It took three days to study what the others poem meant.
My head was just engrossed in dictionary
In search of meanings
A slight mistake while judging others poem can do wonders.
If poem not read properly a lot of confusion can be the outcome.
So many chaos in one roof
Though no sounds but commotions played its role perfectly.
Finally I feel myself in a nowheres land.
With my head reeling in all direction.
Now I forgot which direction am heading too!
And forgot my way too.
Leaving me puzzled.

Interpretation of poem is very difficult.
The poem may look very simple
But to sieve out the deep meaning is really wonderful
If any poem spins on my head
Till I get its meaning
My head too spin with the poem.
Only, I can tell is.....
It drives me crazy!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Interpreting ones poems is very difficult, as far as I am concerned.
Poet know what he wants to convey.
Since Literature was not a part of my subject.
I really take so much time to judge ones poem.
I am so crazy, if anything get struck in my mind, I don't like to leave it incomplete.

    I feel all the notes of mine are coming from an unknown source within me.It's such kind of a pendulation between sadness and madness....

    Often the author fails to communicate his intentions.
    Often there are more than one interpertations
    But in the end it is the readers reaction that counts
    there are the final judge. (Report) Reply

    It is the genuine point discussed here.In confusion Mr.T.S.Eliot even note to his poem The Waste Land. Bernard Shaw wrote lengthy prefaces to his drama lengthier than his drama. It is said, A poet writes a poem, readers make it poems. So write what we feel to our satisfaction and leave it to the readers criticism. (Report) Reply
