    Poetry is the ART of EXPRESSION.
    I wanna share my poetry and feelings to anyone who dreams of a peaceful world.
    Friendship is the greatest feelings.
    Let's be friend. 'EKTA BONDHU HOBE KI BOLO TUMI AMAR? '
    I and my poetry wanna share you the great language, Bangla, for that we gave our blood and lives, for that 21 February is THE INTERNATIONAL MOTHER-LANGUAGE DAY.
    My poetry will share you the life of a BANGALEE and the history of a land that was THE DREAM of the WEST, as was to VASCO da GAMA, COLOMBUS...
    'WE fight for living of a flower,
    WE fight for the smile of a face,
    WE fight for revive the peace of the whole world.'
    (this is a song of our LIBERATION WAR,1971.)

    Just be real, there's no right or wrong.
    What ever you feel, just write it down and be honest with real feeling and emotion.

    Just a couple of thoughts on creativity and writing. For myself, and I can only speak for myself, the creative process is quite organic. An idea, feeling, concept gestates internally for weeks, months, sometimes years and then emerges as a nearly intact poem when it is time to be born.

    I never plan a poem. Each poem has its own unique and proper form. Some are sonnets, some rhymed in other forms, others blank or free verse. Each is its own expression. The poem seems to choose its correct form.

    An analogy to this is how sculptors see a piece of marble or clay and a particular form expresses to them through that medium. Some are pietas and others cheesy Hummel figurines. The incipient form is within the medium.

    I often mix blank and rhymed verse. This seems to occur without my trying to do so. and sometimes a well-placed rhyme in a sea of unrhymed lines can be a powerful way to express a focal thought or feeling.

    I am not one who can just sit down at a blank piece of paper and write if there's nothing happening. I have learned to trust my fallow periods and not give in to the fear that 'I'll never write again! ! ! ' As I said at the beginning of this ramble, poetry is organic for me. It begins internally and works its way out.

    In my recent poem, 'Driving by the Boneyard', I was literally coming home from visiting a sick friend in hospital and passed a cemetary. As I drove by it lines began to come to me. Those lines plus 2 others became the first stanza of that poem.

    Inspiration can be triggered by little things that we observe and those triggers can serve to bring out that which has been gestating within our psyches.

    Hey Foster, yeah you're right poetry is a minority persuit and generally very little people read it these days. But in that, does there not lie a challenge? For all us young poets - this new generation - is it not our opportunity to create poetry that people will want to read? ? ? Well, that's just the way I look at it. It may be simplistic, but hey, not everything in life has to be complicated. Even if that 5% of the population was raised to 6 or 7% from our work, wouldn't that be amazing...
