(Dedicated to a poetic society – Deepak Sarkar, www.kolki.com)
Poems are as ancient as history!
As humans evolved with hymns and chanting
Teaching generations with sounds romantic -
From basics to philosophy to meta-physics!
Poetry is an art of vocal delivery!
That brings rhythmic motion of creativity
Never lost in vast texts inconclusive
Carries eternal messages with simplicity!
Poetry makes conversations lively!
Encourages politeness to all sentient beings
Yet at times appears dormant and illusive
Indulging people in mindless gossips!
But it rises against oppression and injustice!
Brings people together for change productive
As it stanzas act like missiles for peace -
Resurrecting universal love, truth, and justice!
