Oblation - Poem by Sathya Narayana

Poetry? ! What do I know? ?
Someone unknown stirs the mind
Kneads the thoughts; knits fine rows
Of words and runs my numb hand

He is my invisible tow
Of feel and emotive discord
A good friend and a bad foe
Playing with my passion-world

As if keeping up my vows
Of countless past births’ damp load
To His edicts I kowtow
Offering Him, His own words

    The mind stirred indeed by yet someone unknown so as not to be recognized on paper. Poetic prose about poetry’s impetus. Well done. (Report)Reply

    Very true! Poetry comes as a result of inspiration, at times sudden, and at
    other times remaining in the subconscious mind, -waiting to take shape & form in
    verse! -Raj Nandy

    'Someone unknown stirs the mind' - a wonderful way to describe poetic inspiration. Yes, for me they come unannounced and quickly form into verses. I just put the words together, but I wonder who creates those words? Whoever it is, I am thankful that it keeps coming!

    Me too...I am no poet, words just come through love of something or experience. This is good Sathya, best description. I love it! 10+++ (Report)Reply
