A Good Poet

Rating: 4.1


A good poet.
Who is a good poet?
Is good poet sinless?
Who is sinless?
And what is a sin?
Who is free from
Obtuseness, inactivity
Heedlessness and delusion?

And what is a poem?
What is it like?
Who is writing poems?
Is poem in love?
And what is love
In this world of passions
Attachment, aversion.

Is a poet happy?
Ask the poet and
The answer you received
Is not his
Hearing the answer
Are you in tranquility.
A good poet
A good poet.

Excellent poem on the elusiveness of the poet's vision and how reality avoids the clever linguistic cages we make for it.

Nicely done. Yet, the thought that keeps arising in my mind is " Who decides who is a good poet? " Isn't a good poet in the eye of the beholder? Thanks for sharing. : -)
