Cry in the Wilderness

  Drop by drop
My blood drips off me
On the tapestry of hard work,
On the tiresome toil
Engraving a poetic tableau
Of dedication--
My commitment
On the futile canvas
Of transient life...

Vivid vista of abstruse ideas,
Suffering, pains, miseries
Woven together
Painstakingly shaded
And graded with happiness
Found, and bound
In my poetic art
Mostly subjective objectified
Profound in feel
And deeper thoughts
Well wrought in blotted color
Goes useless, unnoticed,
Unappreciated
Dirt-blurred by the sands
Of ruthless Time
My poetic voice is lost
Crying in the wilderness...

Comments on this Poem

Comment "Every poet has different opinion about making poetry. For wordsworth it is “spontaneous over flow of powerful feelings” for Shelley “it is natural” but your way of making poetry is quite different as you writes, “drop by drop my blood dripping off me” it evinces that creation of poetry is not natural but it takes a hard labour and time in its creation your idea sounds like one of the modern poet who believes,“ … every oeuvre there is nothing like miracle but hard labour…”. Your writing way is so rhetoric (using tapestry as metaphor) that enriches poetic diction. Just as a simple cloth can be made expensive and beautiful by using different colours embroidery of thread in the same way a poet creates a poem by taking all kinds of colours from the life ( sorrow, grief happiness and so on) a new theory of poetic creation…"- Durga Patva, UP

Comment The resentment exuding through this well written poem is palpable and quite understandable...The common feeling when good wlrk goes unappreciated and unrecognized, has been excellently articulated.
