any picture comes to my mind,
i try to give it a body of words,
love to sit on other blooms,
for honey, color, fragrance........
To be a poet is to capture those words and put them into sense and beauty is what you have just done.
beautiful. to capture everything, love those last three lines, so true!
To make them happyFor beingDenizens of versesIt can never be a better privilege than to be immersed with poetic language which is not easy to come by.But you have it most distinctly Sumana!Hank
Ah, the poet's view on life, with all its light and darkness - such observations to be made!Poppy
Being a poet can be the most satisfying job of all. To please others and yourself as well.
Being a poet... who feels this strongly... can truly achieve anything they want in this world! Loved it! :DLots of lovexoxo
So to live and die!!
Yes, poetry IS the language of existence indeed-- and you have included so many details of what exactly life IS!
i agree- poetry is the ultimate expression
Beautiful thoughts of the poet....'I wish to includeEverythingIn my lines'You have accomplished this!Donna@LivingFromHappiness
To give every objectA cozy feelTo make them happyFor beingDenizens of verses...What lovely lines you have written here, Sumana.
there are no off-limits for the poet, i do agreeHave a nice Sunday; happy you dropped in to read minemuch love...
Yes, I love your collection of words...perhaps a poem can be made of any ingredient, no real recipe for success? Open your heart, let the words out, catch them if you can.....
This is my favorite of yours now. It's as if you were the eye of the universe writing these lines. The last one is spectacular. It is all so beautiful in it's truth.
what a beautiful poem, Sumana! i love it!♥
"Let the lines be made of birds...." what a glorious poem this is. My awe grew with each line, a cascade of beautiful images...........I wish I had written this poem!!!!!
Bravo and Yes! "Poetry is the language of existence" - so well-said
How glad I am that I don't have to include everything in order for it to exist as I am sure I would leave something important out! I do like all the things you included!
I love the line, "Denizens of verses"--brilliant!
I'm sure that venom and nectar taken together would be a bracing draught!The Corner Thrift Store
i like how reason has a trajectory of its ownMy Brain is a Cheap Gadget That Spins
Ah..this makes me want to write a poem that sings with the shamans!!!
Lovely. The ability to find harmony and/or insights in the turmoils and mysteries of this world - that truly is a language onto itself.
"To make them happyFor beingDenizens of verses ... "And you follow up with the objects lively and also the dull! I love how you alliterated and cascaded among so many possibilities. Poets look through the eye of the needle, threading their lines. Bravo! Even the unhappy are happy to be in the poem.
This is so wonderfully beautiful, Sumana. I feel you've captured the heart of a poet quite well :)
And so it is, Sumana! I love the generosity of spirit with which you write, share, respond.
Yes we are poetry in motion.
a very enchanting piece. :-)ZQ
Sumana,This is rather like the full recipe for poetry of all forms; even the motivation required!! Fantastic...Eileen
