    You have said it all. Young poets (poets remain young till the very end) are explorers of new galaxies every moment. Small but significant comment on the role of a poet. (Report) Reply

    Such an inspiration to young (and to us old) poets. This is the first time I have ever added the poem of the day to my favorite poem list, as far as I can remember. Of course, at my age I can't remember very far. (Report) Reply

    So inspiring and satisfying. Sadly so often spirit is chained in the discipline of format. Thank you so much for translating this beautiful peace. (Report) Reply

    Poetry is a chance at freedom. (Report) Reply

    Poetry is like a puzzle only with limitless pieces of words at hand. Find a correct fit and poem will flow. Bigger the reservoir of words bigger a scoop for a writer. Emotions top but skill and mastery of language does matter and for that reason matters the hard work of learning. (Report) Reply

    I find this poem a mirror to my belief that poetry is the projection of soul. An expression of the soul can never be true and beautiful unless it is free from the bondage of rules. 'Let the words flow, flow from the heart...let them find their place in another heart! ' (Report) Reply

    Poetry is synonymous with freedom of expression, because everything is permitted... (Report) Reply

    I am astonished! PH has put this poem! Strange! Did the editors read it carefully before sending! Perhaps. Actually celebrities (poets) are perhaps the different species......Now I come to my point of being astonished:

    IN POETRY EVERYTHING IS PERMITTED. (from poem above)

    Do PH believe it! If not, why do they misguide the new-generation poets in this world-based site. Off the record, I am 100% agree with Parra. And for this reason I support PH's sending. And expect they will edit carefully (as the sensitive learned editor does) the poems by the dark logic of slang using neglecting the necessity of perspective of a total writing..............................................Pranab k c........10++++++(for the poem) (Report) Reply
