Nasarudheen.P. Parameswaran

(8.8.1952 / Manakad)

Be Frank.


Writing poem is true domain
Reading is never a mood main
But feign for fame by silence
Or mono response nonsense.
Be critic sans erudition cast
With obscure critique is unjust
So is ever an ambiguous poem
Made in mould of modernism.

    You have rightly said the thing which everyone has to keep in mind while reading and assessing the writes of their friends. Well written sir. (Report) Reply

    A poem should be easy to read, easy to understand and a joy to think about. Too much ambiguity sometimes leave the readers clueless, which is not desirable.
    Kudos to Valsa George and Elena Sandu for their perceptive comments. (Report) Reply

    Writers are of all kind and so the readers.A lust for fame could bend the strongest men. The frank honest writer most people really love but would it be fair to smear my heart with mud of hate for the ones whose style could be the otherwise? The best that I could do would be to write my point of view as peaceful and beautiful as you, or (lol, my style) deep my head into mountains of sand with hope that it would close my mouth before I'd hurt someone...My pen is meant to always be kind, yet the right way, the good balance of fair how can I find? A good poem that helped me deepen into self. Thank you for share. (Report) Reply

    Though ambiguity is treated as cool and in keeping with modern trends, too much ambiguity mars the beauty of the poem. Plain speaking with lyrical beauty is preferred in a poem to one loaded with too many allusions and cryptic and enigmatic statements! Nicely put! ! (Report) Reply
