Yesterday was World Poetry Day. I woke up to a tag on Twitter by a generous soul, who added me as one of his favourite poets.
Though I don’t post what he called as poems, on WordPress, I do engage in plenty of short write prompts on Twitter.
I would say that words and I are old lovers, while I have spent my half-life with Chemistry. Now I have both.
It is not easy. And I am still learning to write. Some days, words just flow easily. And other days I have to sit tapping my pen.
And I do love the struggle. Filling blank pages with verses. Then striking and rephrasing, till you get it right.. somewhat right.
This one is for the verses I am yet to write.
A million poems
sleep in my heart,
like fireflies in winter,
for a warm summer night.
