Oh, Poetry

Rating: 5.0


Oh, Poetry

Poetry, Oh poetry, where art thou?
I'm looking for thee
since day and night
thou art out of sight

thou art nowhere to find
looked in my mind
no audience found
no words,
no syllables,
no vowels or consonants

I wonder
Where art thou?
I've looked
in all hooks and nooks

Ah! there thou art
thou art visionary
not commondaly

Poetry, oh poetry
thou art just everywhere
in the air

Poetry is all around us
poetry is soaring
never boring

how we
create poems?

just stare in the air
poetical source
is oft soaring

just catch the beauty,
the inspiracy
and let all ugliness behind

please,
don't store ugliness in thy mind
thy poem would be one of a kind

Yes, this is how Poetry works. Just see and catch the beauty in everything and our pen will be inspired soaring to the realm of Poetry where there is no darkness and ugliness.

Poetry is the language of silence and the rhythm of stillness. If the mind stand still for few seconds, beautiful poems flows with ease.
