Garland of Words

I am weaving garland
With some picked up words
To adorn the hearts of
A few generous people.
Some don’t tolerate it
Because of their narrow minds.
Some are too busy to have a look at it
Some through mud at it
Out of sheer jealousy.
Some even say its an imitation
Very cunningly devised art.
Even then,
Some find it worthy of attention.

I will continue weaving garlands
Only for those chosen people
Till death shakes with me.
I hope a time will come
When my faults will be pardoned
My torn garlands would be found
In many people’s neck,
And my efforts will be well paid
Whatever I have lost, I will get it back.

I look at my friends
And ask those friends of mine
Whatever you have done
Will be yours, after sometime.

I am in the midst of crowd
Even then loneliness grips me
And in such time I lean
On words, one of my best friends,
And weave a garland out of it
That gives me everlasting delight and profit.

Garlands of words...Oh, such a beautiful poem about words! How the poet, the artisan, crafts words into shapes, gives a meaning, infuses with feelings, eventually turns them into poetry, and offers to the readers one of the most wonderful form of art.10 +++
