There Is A Poem Which Is Not A Poem - Poem by Shalom Freedman


There is a poem which is not a poem
Its mind breaks its music
Its heart is too much in thought.
It does not sing us to somewhere else.

There is a poem which is not a poem
Prosaic confessional flat,
Its says its single thing from the soul
And leaves the page without implication.

How many such poems have I written
As I write this one now?

    ps...unless of course, it is a poem about some like me, whose every word is gulped up with glee! lol And obviously, yous have to be as modest as me to cope with the flame...

    Smiling at you

    Tai, just thinking out landish

    You strike on a point that is very important to poetry here, my frend! basically...if it is just about YOU and does not have a universal appeal or theme...It is just a poem about YOU and they get boring...

    Shalom... indeed.

    Smiling at you
