The publishing Activity


Publishing becomes serious

Writing is always tedious

With a blog there is a reach

little over that it becomes a breach

getting verses in print

looks like a great stint

yet poets want to go across

irrespective of the toss

which might bring a repute

though there is a dispute

that fiction receives a welcome

poems bring no income

poetry still remains for a few

lighting up those who love it true

the publishing takes different forms

that of self and recognised norms

while the queue to get published is long

opting for self publishing becomes strong

with the money to invest possible

nothing goes on in this world as impossible.

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

O World! O Life! O Time!
On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had stood before;
When will return the glory of your prime?
No more -Oh, never more!
