A DEFINATION OF POETRY


Not just a paper with few scribbled lines,

A
painting on canvas it is, or a sketch,

Ancient
inscripted Monumental design

beauty
to our minds and hearts, it fetch.

words
are like those white polished pearls

Knitted
on a plain paperlike silk thread,

Which
is a necklace beneath hairs curls

and
adds beauty to a womens neck.

Sky
sans starsa plain paper sans poems

are
same, full of darkness and void.

Poetry
lies in my breath, is a false notion,

For
my breath will stop, one fine day

But
poetry being as vast as the ocean

Will
keep flowing like sea in unique ways.

We
talk of poets, resting in their graves,

Like
Shakespeare and other poets

Who
have left behind their footsteps,

In
the form of never ending poems.

What is the definition of Poetry according to you? You can share your opinions with me….
