The day I started writing poetry I stopped reading books As after that I started reading Many other things Like a person, birds and animals Sometimes I read trees, Sometimes a lake, Sometimes the whole nature My games have also changed Earlier I used to jump in the swimming pool Now I jump into the ocean of imagination I swim in it And dive deep I found precious pearls of verses and poetry Who is a poet? With closed eyes he sees light more shinier than the sun With no book readings, he can write eternal songs He has competition with none My poetry is not a big banyan tree, but a seed When you will read it first It will seem as tiny as a seed But if you keep in your heart It will grow like a big banyan tree I am modern but my poetry is ancient One reader mailed me I got stoned after reading your poems I said be careful Few poems are more intoxicating than marijuana I am a lie But my poetry is truth
