A Poet's Day

Post by DarleneG » Mon Oct 27, 2014 7:47 am

In early morning ,
a poet writes.
One with the dawning.

While the morning sun
lights the land,
all earth
wakes up yawning.

And as the sun
climbs the sky,
poems live
in the poet's eye.

Daylight is diminishing.
The poet is finishing.
Ending come,
and the day is done.

That's what we think!
But, still, we wake up
in the night.
The muse turns
on and off our light.

Thoughts come and go
inside the head.
We're still not ready
for sleep and bed!

This poem tells the truth only
In Twitter, views reached 45000
Just in a single week to elate
Then I worked like the Sun

Every week, the views were in 1000
i started toiling to create an impression
For a long time, tireless game went on
Views were at least above 4000 each week

I was mad after this with great bliss
Suddenly for a week nothing came
Another week went on with no news
Then only I understood my greed

After all a poet wants views truly
That is a kind of great recognition
Now, I have understood life's mystery
May God forgive me for my greed

This poem made me realize my job
As I almost was in twitter always
Obama also favorited my Tweet
So, I was astounded by the result

But, I am now brought back to Earth
I have come to normality in sense
This poem only made me muse
A really lovely poem indeed.
