"Why Poetry?" Poetry is rescue:
When writhing bunch
Of words entrapped
Pave an escape route
Through calculated movements
Of your nerves twitching
And your fingers arranging themselves
Poetry is a placebo:
Sugar coated metaphors
Arranged in a carefully chosen
Meter, or may be splashed
Upon a page in a rhapsody;
Blobs of letters in an absurd fashion.
It smoothes the wrinkles
On your skin, on your mind,
Imbued with the anxieties
Of unsolved angst.
Poetry is healing:
The wounds that go
Deeper than the
Skin, blood, or bone
And make home
In a dark corner
Of your soul;
The words reach out
The whimpering fragment
Of your 'Self', pleading
For a ray of light.
Poetry is a powerful tool of literary significance that has evolved through centuries, taking several garbs. Literature in every language, civilization, dialect and culture is not unaware of poetry.
I come across beautiful writing both in poetry and prose through extensive reading, but when I intend to squeeze out and relieve myself of the deadening vacuum inside, poetry redeems me.
To all the poets and their poetry (written, printed, or simply stored in their mind and heart), I wish a very happy World Poetry Day!
My current favorite poetry collection: "The Sand Libraries of Timbuktu" by Rohinton Daruwala ( published by @speakingtiger)
