I Will Write Poems


When you are busy
making money
buying lands
and maybe
happiness too
I will write poems
of wings to fly abroad.
They will carry mostly sorrow.

You will make your passport
get visa
get checked ins and out
in customs
while my poems shall migrate
like birds.

There you will
like every one else
who visits
find everything
everyone finds
and even migratory birds
on unseen brooks.

There you will
meet people, sharing love
caring so much
making your stay, pleasant.
But still
you may not find
birds, my poems
perching
on their sorrowful hearts.

The reason maybe
you will have no time
to look at them
or they will have no reason
to show you at all.

    When we write poems, we derive joy and on wings of imagination we are able to soar to far off lands... Others may or may not read them... That shouldn't bother us.... Keep writing and indulge in a gift many are not blessed with.... Enjoyed! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
