I Wanted... - Poem by Kesav Venkat Easwaran

I wanted to write a poem
Wanted to tell a tale
But knew not how to rhyme
No words I could avail

I looked towards the sky
Said a heart felt prayer
God said: ‘Open your eye
And see my creations rare’

I thanked and looked around
To feel the flowing waters
To read the blowing wind
To see the mist and mounts

The bright beauteous flowers
The sweet swimming fish
The cute flying birds
Grass so green and lush

The starlets and the moon
That glitter in the sky
Oh God! These are Thy boon
The morn and milky rays

All these I can see
All things I can feel
On all I can write
And sing songs with zeal

All these seem to sing
Songs my heart unheard,
Words so muse so long,
That make my mind revered

A poet and his heart
Can never rest or sleep
Oh God! Thanks a lot
Thy wealth, a precious heap!

    Subjectivation of surrounding objects is equal to poetry and add pinch of exalted –true-viewed-vibe’ makes poetry great…and Sir here you made it…

    A true blessing of God. I think Its nature, the main creative force, that sprinkles poetry. I can say this poem a prelude to poetry. Deserves 10 as always the most of your poems, Kesav.

    Best Regards

    We have eyes,
    but remain blind for years
    can't see who thy rears
    Can't see who thy quenches thrust
    can't see who thy bears.
    We have eyes!

    A perfect reminder to me
    Of Robert Frost's lines...

    'Life is tons of discipline.
    Your first discipline is your vocabulary;
    Then your grammar and your punctuation
    Then, in your exuberance and bounding energy
    You say you're going to add to that.
    Then you add Rhyme and meter.
    And your delight is in that power.”

    Started with a prayer for a Rhyme
    Squared with a wonderful Theme.
    It all sounds like a chime.

    I like it, i like it and i like it.
    A very good read. Thank you, dear poet.

    precious... yes...usha, poets must be vigilant in ensuring protection to our this environment... what rest? what sleep? ... (Report) Reply

    A precious heap, of wonderful imagery too, is this.
    I like the juxtaposition of precious and heap... What one considers, sometimes trivial, and not really worthwhile, are sometimes the most precious! !
    And of course, the closing stanza, that is a wonder in itself. Lucidly expressed, the job of a poet!
