Noon - Poem by Rohan Nambiar

Its noon, its noon
Sitting outside, a gentle breeze
Followed with a touching smell
Continues on and on
A sound of cooking
Smell of dishes in the air
Can they bring a good noon
Someone watching
others in work
Alone in outdoor
really I am enjoying
Leaves twitter
dancing up and down
A sense of greenery
Make my eyes happy
Its raining here sweating heat in the noon
Makes the people a little drained
Who is the one that comes to eat
That good old homely noon

    it is half way therel, the images you use are really human and touching but your poem lacks some poetic impact. Think about trying to give it a rythem or some half rhyme just to give it a poetic feel. There is a lot you could do with this poem because it is a very relatable image but just work on building a poem round your words. xx keep up the good start xx (Report) Reply

    some fine imagery used which completes the picture that you are trying to fuse with your poetic words
    nice one

    I thought some words could have been added or deleted. 'cooker'? ? But overall, it was inviting to come to that persons house or neighborhood around noon. Also a picture story was behind it. (Report) Reply

    Perhaps you meant 'cooking, ' rather than 'cooker? '
    'sweating' heat, rather than 'swearing heat? ' - although that might be an interesting usage.
    And, I'm guessing, 'drained, ' rather than 'drain? '

    Keep at it, Rohan. A good suggestion I have heard: read lots of poetry, classical and modern. See how the masters get that blend of image, metaphor, symbol, and make a blend as tasty as that lunch you describe.

    Best wishes!

    I assume you are describing noon around where you live. This is interesting
    from a cultural standpoint, but a reader of poems wants something more of substance here. The purpose of this writing is missing. The message is
    missing. The why, is missing. That's a lot. Beyond that, there is little
    to comment on except that I got hungry.

    Nice, I thought this very good but was left a little wantting at the end. Some very nice imagies and good choice of words too. I think this could be longer with othervignettes of noon. Nice work. (Report) Reply
