I will fail to explain how but I know by now
Poetry is food for many others like me.
Like every other food everyday in my dish
Pieces of delicious Poetry need be served.

Mostly I like to intake poetry self made.
Repeatedly I intake the same poetry dish
Which everyday tastes different, day after day.

I don't know how good or bad this food is
But it works well to keep me fresh everyday.
I'm not insomniac but hardly I get to sleep
only few hours as poetry keeps me awake.

Poetry keeps me awake even when I sleep.
Poetry keeps me asleep when I'm awake.
And I also know this also happens to you.
But people in general will not understand.

I also live with those people who do not
understand what I fail to explain But
they are the beautiful people I think about.

You must be living with many of them
who have mindsets differently molded.
They need no food as such and therefore
I feel no urge to share my food with them.

Poem of the Day

poet Oliver Wendell Holmes

WHAT flower is this that greets the morn,
Its hues from Heaven so freshly born?
With burning star and flaming band
It kindles all the sunset land:
