...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... :)

...'special'...

..i was caught unaware...
..was too timid but for her did i gulp the fear..
..when she spoke i quivered...
...my body went numb as i shivered..
..but still i gathered courage and dared..
..because i wanted her to know how much i cared..
..her words that showered with care...
..i felt ' special ' for the secrets she did share..
..when she spoke about her past...
..my heart started beating very fast..
..as time went by it started to unfold..
..she was the 'one' with a heart of gold..
..for her i was ready to face the guillotine..
..endure whatever even if my heart did whine...
..though i knew i was nothing less than a swine..
..in her i started seeing the shades of my ' valentine '..
 ..my past relationships have been a sham..
 ..don't want this ' special  ' one to slam..
 ..that is why we are the best of friends..
 ..i will let her know when my search ends...
..until that moment in the darkness do i grope..
..what keeps me going is a mirage called hope ..
..i ask myself..is this beginning of something to bloom..
 ..see the clouds clearing n the death of gloom..
  ..but i ll always live with one biggest regret..
 ..that is the sin i committed of making her wait.. :(

T@sHY... witherin in ma memoir!!!!! said...

now it occurs to me dat dreamin n visionin walks side by side..
sky aint da limit... its da penetrable wall of our imaginative journey.... i agree

riggs said...

..imagination helps us build dat bridge between d periphery of d limitless sky..to d borders of unknown worlds which we ve never seen..
..later imagination ll also help u to penetrate d amber walls of dat godlike celestial worlds.. ;)
