Nikunj Sharma

Magnets

Wrapped carefully in words, feelings
travel across the miles. Edgy fingers;
wait to kiss the heart of keyboard,
mindful of space bar.

To know more about
each other, They live another day
full of smiles. Praying in their world;
playing the part assigned.

Heartbeats heard, stethoscope
not required, each beat expressive of
its intent. Far yet near
Faint yet clear.

Unseen forces; unknown faces,
Concerns for each other;
Silent reminders of existence
and belief at other end.

Undiscovered magnetism;
they defy the written
laws - likes repel, unlikes attract.

    simply love the nuanced ebb and flow, the subtle yet powerful linking 'far yet near, faint yet clear, ' such beautiful imagery and skillful mastery of poetry is truly rare and deeply inspiring!

    Nice! ! !

    Unseen forces; unknown faces, - (well described)
    Concerns for each other;
    Silent reminders of existence – (this is true)
    and belief at other end.

    Undiscovered magnetism;
    they defy the written – (it is where we all exist… in our own place…)
    laws - likes repel, unlikes attract.

    Hi Nikunj - Magnetism is an amazing force and there are millions of electromagnets working all over the World to make high tech life a reality. The power of the NORTH & SOUTH poles to attract has a real counterpart in human magnetism. The beauty of Poemhunter is that through POETRY - which is a primitive universal force - people of different cultures - class - country and the religious and political divides can be attarcted to each other and interact through the common medium of poetry. People who would never meet in normal; circumstances and because of their 'ethnicity' might not even be allowed to meet! We 'Travel across miles' (V 1) we 'Know more about each other' (V 2) 'Heartbeats heard' Far & Fiant yet Near & Clear (V 3) . Magenetism is a Paradox so is Poemhunters! 'Unseen Forces' and 'Unknown Faces' 'Undiscovered Magnetism' - MAGIC! This poem so so describes my experience of POEMHUNTER that I love it (and wish I'd written it!) . Well done NIKUNJ I score it MAX. Yours in Poetry - JOHN.
