The Fragrance Of A Poet - Poem by ramesh rai

The fragrance of a flower
only spreads in the direction
of wind, but its consistency
is only for time being

The fragrance of a poet
spreads in all direction
its consistency is for ever
no mountain can stop
the fragrance of a poet
which is full of wisdom and
foresightness for a better tomorrow

The fragrance of a poet
shall remain alive
till the creation is alive

    Loved the concept of this poem, where you contrasted the temporary against the eternal; it left me wanting more...

    Fragrance of a poet -in all direction-really fantastic-
    the last three lines only comparable with shakespears last stanza 'shall i compare
    with a summer day' ' in essence --beautiful-
