What Is Poetry? What Do You See In?


What is poetry, if ask you, I shall say,
Poetry is images,
The images and reflections
Of Kali, Durga, Lakshmi and Saraswati,
The Motherly Consciousness
Incarnating as to annihilate and lessen sin on earth
In the form of Kali, representing anger and wrath against
And as Durga the Battle-queen,
Representing Valour, the clash and jingle of swords.

In my poetry, make I the images of Kali, Durga, Lakshmi and Saraswati,
See I them making the idols of clay,
Painting and colouring them,
The sculptors sculpting out
Of stone, cement and others.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
