An Unborn Poem - Poem by M.D DINESH NAIR

An unborn poem
Is perhaps a poetic reverie.
Sure it is, but I must say
Another poem
Has been conceived by me
It is yet to be penned down though.
It needs a pen that will never dry up
And the readers who will turn grey haired never.

Sure it is, and I must say
Within me living on
Is a poem superseding my others
Yet unborn after conception!
Certain poems are so, dear ones.
Between their conception and birth often
Scores of months entwine us the mothers to-be.
An unborn poem never dies.

    Marvelous depiction of poetic inspiration that always ring inside the heart of a poet.Even penning a poem a poet is never satisfied whether he could fully express what he felt..The restlessness continues- - - - -An unborn poem never dies.- - - - -Beautiful! ! ! ! ! (Report) Reply

    very well composed. beautiful stanza form, the content is also thought provoking.., so many thoughts are conceived but their natal period is sometimes very long...there are many unwritten poems...
    Let your pen always be poignant for your fervent readers..........
