Something Weird Happened That Day!

Something Weird Happened That Day! short poem

In case I forget to write about this

I want you know

I swallowed some words by mistake once

And didn’t understand where did they go?

I feel something on my fingertips

A charming passionate greed

Thoughts flow and words follow

At a magically divine speed

There’s a tree growing within me

I feel each branch and leaf

Some poems fall on an autumn eve

I shake them off my sleeve

Spaces and voids, long and large

Melt into thoughts and stay

I often keep wondering what happened

To the words I swallowed that day?

When poetry touches the soul, everything starts making sense. The inner world seems real and the outer one becomes bearable. When thoughts mixed with words travel through the empty spaces of mind, poetry happens to me. It always has been a mysterious force guiding me through. With two published books and one amaturish blog, I consider myself blessed to have started this journey. An old diary with think brown cover and an over used, end bitten pen. That’s where real magic begins! May you find your undiscovered meanings in my poems. May existence make sense. Even if just for a little while.

We can see where the words went Chandrama. The playful tone of this poem is endearing. As also the expression of words pouring out from those that lie within. Very enjoyable reading!

It is a lovely poem a good take on words that help us write. Yes sometimes words
have a life of their own begging to be written. I enjoyed reading yours
