On writing a poetry:


Some of my friends ask me from time to time as to why I don’t use my poems to form my posts instead of or in addition to penning only prose texts. There are volumes of poems I have written in different languages known to me and am still doing it with a mini sort of intermissions. I have some reservations in this context conviction wise. Poetry is too  chaste a version of expressions as compared to prose and for that reason it claims more of devoted attention both by the poet and equally the audience from the angle of receptivity. A poem, flow as it does from the very core of the poet’s heart, doesn’t tolerate any kind of indifference. Moreover, the very theme side of a poem is normally a most delicately tender one unless of course it is a comic or comedy sort of a  thing, it is sans necessary compatibility with commercially professional areas, which are more common for the online bloggers. Some of my blogger friends like SoumyaV and Sakshi Vashist write good poems for their blog posts and they are able to manage their work quite well, a job all and sundry can’t afford to attend. SoumyaV has an instinctive built of mind with enough of literary guts. She writes much better in English than what she does, of course dexterously, in Urdu mixed Hindi. Mine are mostly melancholy poems, certainly not the mere poesies, and are not at all viable commercially, hence there could be a considerable distance between me and those at the receiving end. Owing to this I thought better it is for me to keep myself distracted from such an arena. To partly meet the requisition of my friends, I simply, and humbly, give below a small piece as a link out of what I once wrote in this very blog in the form of a page titled as ‘Tired am I”:

    • I wrote only what I honestly felt. “Poetry is a spontaneous over flow of powerful emotions”, it is said, and that is what your writings manifest. No exageration, nothing artificial. You deserve praise for your expressions, chaste and note worthy as they are. Thanks for your comment.
