Birth of a Poem
by Sharbaaniranjan Kundu
Bookmark and Share
  Not all poems get written.
Most get lost
like millions of sperms of men
and few hundred eggs of women!

Why and how some poems get written
is a mystery
like the stars in heaven.
Thoughts flitter every now and then
in our mind.

Like a few sperms fertilize
only a few eggs,
so also a poem is born.
Exactly why and how poetry is written
is analogous to the question
when a sapling sprouts from  a seed,
how life germinates in all forms of life.

A poem is a mystery
as much as any life form.

Comment Natural poem is like a tree grown out of seeds with leaves, flowers and fruits. Otherwise, it is like artificially assembled one with words!
