Tirupathi Chandrupatla


Poem's a Poem


A poem's not
A black cat hiding
Under the bed
In a dark room.

Poem's the cat
That jumps to life
At mice of ideas
Roaming around.

Poem's organized
Presentation of
A whole bunch of
Disorganized thoughts.

Or it could be
A disorganized set
Of wild thoughts
Of an ordered mind.

Poem looks at
Extraordinary aspects
Of simple and ordinary
Events in life.

Or it could be
An ordinary view
Of something
Very special.

Every subject's
Topic for a poem
Every person
A poet unique.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
