~ Checkmate ~

I sweat
To be a poet
Please wait
I’ll be a poet.

Please wait
Till a date
I’ll be a poet.

Finally of late
Confessing straight
Puzzled by words
I’m checkmate.

For sure I bet
I can’t be a poet! !

    You are already a poet. This is well done, but I thought it would be about chess. I love a good game of chess. Three of my poems are about chess. They are IGOR, ETERNAL GAME? and BULLDOG OF IDAHO CHESS.

    The more I get of you, and I may not be qualified to judge these matters, but, the more I feel your verbiage is of the highest poetic standard.

    It's indeed a miracle, you don't comprehend
    But you're a fine shepherdess of words,
    We basked in your fervent shades, my friend
    Yet you say, you'll fly off with the birds!

    Greetings Ms. Nivedita,
    I read this poem, twice. I also read some of the comments left about this poem.
    I don't get it. I think this poem is full of nothing.. I like more meat in my poems.

    Really it so. Nobody can become a poet unless his or her nature is poetic. It is not necessary that a poet should be educated, or a degree holder, but the heart must be full of fancies and emotions along with flow of language.you've presented it in a quite nice way of expression. Thanks for sharing such a good poem.

    Life seems to be game to be played fresh every day, death has to come inevitably but before that we have to win it

    though you are already a poet the humble and modest heart of yours refuses to accept it. :) Thats a great thing. With this thought in mind, you will keep on trying to improving your poetic talents and glow forever... Loved your attitude as well as your poem mam.

    The poet, an endless flow, process, no time to wait, no time to waste, good to freeze and think about it for a moment like I sense you did here, then just move on.
    sweat
    To be a poet
    Please wait
    I’ll be a poet.
    Sometimes we have already achived something without even knowing that. You are a poet.
