...who is a POET??...he is...but a dethroned king sitting among the ashes of his palace trying to fashion an image out of the ashes...
..he is the poorest of the poor..yet he carries an oasis in his heart cultivated by the caravan of his thinking...he is a pauper..but he still pretends to be a ' prince ' in the kingdom of his vivid imagination..
..he only sings when he is starving for he cannot sing if his mouth be filled with food...
..he only raises his hand to beg for he cannot raise his hands if it be filled with gold...
..his wealth is his winged imagination and fictive power to think...and ' thinking ' always acts for him as the stumbling stone to ' poetry '... :) ;)
..he is a tree watered by the river of beautiful thoughts..and carries in his heart a lamp unconquered by darkness..
..yes..he seeks NIRVANA..not by counting coins of gold..but in leading his sheep to greener pasture..in seeking a smile from humanity...in putting his child to sleep..and in writing the last line of his poem... :)

...he will be unheard until humans honor the dead and forget the living..for then only upon his ' death '... ' he ' will rule their hearts...and his kingdom will have no ending... :) :) ;)
..TO HAVE GREAT POETS..THERE MUST BE GREAT AUDIENCES TOO... :)

.. haiti.. :(


..while the world slept..
..the ground beneath her trembled...
..mothers,fathers n children wept..
..as everywhere lay the dead...

..palaces n houses reduced to rubble..
..after the earth shook for a few seconds...
..the injured trying to scramble...
..it's the nature's wrath that had beckoned...

 ..all along were lying a sea of corpses..
..piled up one upon the other...
..hoping against hopes...
..this time has united them together..

..in a country where poverty is an epidemic..
..which for centuries has remain enslaved...
...this calamity has made things pandemic..
 ..this day will forever remain engraved..

...its unthinkable to count the pain and the damage..
..shouts,screams n shrieks everywhere...
...we have  to bring them out of this carnage...
..its time to show we care n wipe their tear.. :(
