Poems die out


It is no more me
I am totally free
Simply a singing bird
Out to enjoy with words

Daily I sit on dais
With simple views sans bias
Thoughts creep in
Poem’s real entry is certainly seen

I think about moon
But then appears hot sun
Both are striking in mind
I fail to write with approach of such kind

Yet do emerge some good creations
It is felt with close relation
The bond and firmness is at heart
The thoughts are taken in the form of an art

I love to flow with words
Feel same intensity as if praying to lord
It flows like calm river water
Strikes both banks for course to alter

I think about poems too
It is equally important and true
River tries to rush the sea
But unfortunately it dies out before could flee

The poems die out
If no one reads or talks about
It finds no place at reader’s heart
Yet may remain in achieve as valuable part

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
