A Wish

Rating: 5.0
Savita tyagi, the muse,
inspire my thoughts, and bless
your words to my pen.

I wish I were a poet,
Not like any other,
In the long list of wishes may be another addition,
My pen, like a key to a piano,
When touched in a spring noon,
Would break my monotony.
The languid humming of a cuckoo,
Would mellow in its sweet words.
The senses esoteric,
would gain life in my words.
I do smile, when alone,
At my thoughts, at my naivety.
But I do have a right to dream;
They say poets are dreamers,
So am I a poet, or
Am I asleep.
The impotency of my ink does
grasp my soul,
Do I hear my soul whimper?
The mundane thoughts, the dull desires,
The paralysed thoughts,
Are suitors to my incapacity
To sit quiet and still.
I wish I were a poet.

Thank you so much Rishik. I liked it the way you have shaped it for your wish. Glad that my poem could be an inspiration to you. I myself have been inspired many times by what I read. But inspiration is all around us and what you see and hear would be shaped in your mind for your pen to give it a unique voice. A Voice of your own. It reflects in this poem and it will reflect in more of your poems too as you keep on writing. Thank you for sharing it.
