If you could see poetry through my eyes....


I am surrounded by people who think
poetry as a worthless art and a waste of time
I pity them for they couldn't see
the beauty of words decorated with rhyme

Poetry isn't mad writings
on dirty old paper
It is an art of binding emotions
using words as wrapper

If you could see poetry through my eyes.....

Poetry is an art of playing
the rhythm of heart's melody
Poetry is an art of giving wings
to your soul setting your spirit free

Poetry is an art of teaching
words to your pen and making it speak
Poetry is an art of giving breath of words
to your imaginations which are at its peak

Poetry is an art of raining
words when breeze of creativity touches cloud of thoughts
Poetry is an art of reaping words
in the mud of emotions held by creativity pots

Poetry is an art of creating magic
by giving concrete form to your abstract raw thoughts
Poetry is an art of completing a puzzle
by connecting appropriate word dots

Poetry is an art of drawing
a rainbow of words on the paper sky
Poetry is an art of touching hearts
by evoking emotions, anything from joy to sigh

Poetry is an art of sewing a necklace
by binding pearls of words using the thread of emotions
Poetry is an art of dedicating that beautiful necklace
to the mother of writing - Literature.

Poetry is a form of dance,
Not all can perform,
One has to stretch, balance
Only their minds.

Lovely poem!!
