"Flash!" and it appeared.

OctPoWriMo 2013 Day 3


...and it suddenly appeared
one day,
just like a blob of cloud
in the pristine blue sky,
what made me write it
I still don't know why
and how?

may be it was the
jilted heart,
or the owlish moments,
or the passing thought
of a romantic,
I scribbled down
my first poetry,
at the mid hours
of a night.

Fond of Keats and Browning
as a child,
and the Lucy poems
above all,
but hated Frost,
the curves and turns
of his poems
made me nervous and cry,
the annotations,
the explanations
made me sigh.

never did I think I will write
but whatever it is
today I am proud
My first poem was
" A blob of Cloud".


Though I hated Robert Frost's poem as a child, later on" The road not taken" became one of my favourite poems.

I am always interested in how varied individual tastes are in poetry, music, art, etc. I was a fan of Frost early on in my life, but not so much of Keats or Browning! Odd, isn't it? But that's why we are all needed as poets... because there's someone out there that needs to hear what we have to say in a way that only we can say it. Wonderful poem!
