Elemental poetry


Who said it’s enormously easy
to write an eloquent poetry?

Engaging consistency with concentration
Passion and patience in right proportion
Rhyme and rhythm coupled in imagination
Creative ingredients to its level optimum
Adorns the petals of a memorable poem

I am not a renowned writer.
Nor a poet of great repute,
still I prefer to share
few lines of a latent truth.
The dilemma of a poet
pervades every creative corner
What to write?
How to write?
What are the questions?
How to be answered?
Should I borrow an idea?
Should I twist an existing specimen?
Can I go lenient on the lineage?
Can I compromise with a league?

Beware of old thought’s repetition
Be sensitive seek not sensation
Touch new heights of continuation
Recognize the twang of variation
This will garner wide reputation
With an inactive part’s valediction

    While I understand the excessive use of the dictionary, there's food for thought in this theme, as the poet explores not just the topics, but the morals in writing and sharing ideas. The effectiveness of each poet's writing style can be varied with different styles, hopefully improving in time and in rhyme, or just the wanderings of one's thoughts, exploring the use of words in clever ways. So it is, that this style reminds us of clever words still untapped within our dictionaries that could enhance our poetry. The trick is not to saturate the poetry, but to stimulate the poetry.
