Kranthi Pothineni

Old Poet - Poem by Kranthi Pothineni

My time is rhyming away
In these rhymes of my lays
Into a deep silence theme
With no music of forever's
Of my heart or of my soul

In this times of wrinkles
I rest in rich sweet silence
On my old long white hair
With no cry of rolling tears
That had grown old with me

In these folds on my face
Many songs are folded in
To rest in peace with me
With no sign of their ashes
Even to unfold in my rhymes

In trembling hands of mine
Words are dancing in eyes
To fly away from the sight
Of my golden white bread
That rules virtue of my rhymes

    Blessed be the aged. The older the poet, the sweeter the rhyme; rhymes which shall not grow old with him. (Report) Reply

    Only the physical being grows old, the mind sharpens as time goes by, the heart hardens... becomes smart and confident, learned or soften....the pages written never fades beyond time...great! (Report) Reply

    As creative person poets never get old…wrinkled…hands may bar…thoughts and imaginations stay nimble…
    And you’ve portrayed that…

    Old poets mellow like aged wine - waiting for consumption (Report) Reply

    The poet may grow old, but the poetry endures for generations to enjoy.
    Therefore, take no song or poem with you, but share them all. Lovely poem.
