Anita Sehgal

Rookie (Delhi)

Music


Music pours forth from the taut strings of a sitar,
under the nimble fingers of the player.
Notes reverberate into the ether
till the sounds fades into infinity,
I surrender myself to Thee to play the
music of life, as You desireth.

    Congrats Anita. Beautiful music being played by words, played by the nimble fingers in strings of sitar. Beautiful music, now I can hear. Loved it. Short and sweet. (Report) Reply

    There is not a single poetic word in this piece which is therefore not a poem but a bundle of cliches - that suddenly veers into a closing declaration of religious faith. It's fine if that's what you want - just please DONT CALL IT A POEM!
