he badly wanted to write a poem
he did not have a theme to reflect
he did not have the words to pen
he did not have the thoughts to express
but just a want to write

first para went like above
didnt know how to fill the second
searching for words, complex words
he was still struggling
may be it was a bad idea to write

he felt ashamed, not being expressive
being thoughtless and numb
but then he didnt care, he didnt want to
he has a different territory, poetry was not his
just thoughts wont do, just words wont do

he stopped writing that poem. not anymore.

Superbu ! I should start writing one too ! Probably you can have a theme that says a poem that inspires everyone to write a poem. :-)

Thanks Kasthuri Srinivasan. But does it inspire, really ??

Probably one of the best poems I've been impressed with in recent times.
Reasons

1) Practical
2) Simple
3) Very readable

People might have different views but that's what I like.!

Hat's off..to you..I hope you write more and more of such Practical poems.

I've learnt by experience ( thru blogs mostly) that once you start writing poems, you look at things differently..so that a poem can be born.!

Good work Keerthi and thanks for letting me know.!

எண்ணத்தை வார்த்தைகளாய் வாக்கியங்களில் வடித்தால் வாசிக்கும் ஒருவருக்கு கஷ்டமாக இருக்கும் என்பதால் என் எண்ணங்களை வார்த்தைகளாய் ஒன்றின் கீழ் ஒன்றாய் அடுக்கி கவிதை என்று சொல்லிக் கொள்கிறேன். கொஞ்சம் எதுகை மோனையோடு. என்னுடையது கவிதை எனில் உங்களுடையதும் கவிதை தான். என்னைப் பொருத்தவரை, சொல்ல வந்த விஷயத்தை புரியும்படி சொல்லிவிட்டால் நாம் கவிதை எழுதிவிட்டோம் என்றே நினைப்பேன். அதை நீங்கள் மிக அழகாக செய்து இருக்கிறீர்கள். வாழ்த்துக்கள். தொடரட்டும் உங்கள் முயற்சி.
