A Poem by Anshuman Aryav

This is a imaginary poem on poetry. Why there is no one who can define poetry? Yes many have defined poetry but those are not a satisfactory definition of poetry. In this poem i tried to define it.


One day, I was sitting under a tree,

I had nothing to do, so I was free.

I started thinking about a mystery,

That why many have tired to define poetry.

I get trapped in that situation,

And sank in a poetic world of imagination.

I started searching answer to this question,

That's why no one is able to define composition.

I got one answer after a long illusion,

That poetry is a combination of rhyme, music and vision.

It has a feeling and emotion,

Which convey a message to the whole nation.

I got only one answer again and again,

That poetry can relieve all the pains.

It has power to convert snow into rain,

And if you can successfully define it,

Then you can change your life,

Only with help of a paper and a pen.

Kind of like trying to capture lightining in a jar I think. Every writer will have their own definition of poetry and the dictionary will have a standard one but generic and probably flaccid to people who write poetry.
I'm glad I happened upon your definition Anshuman.

Yaa every writer has its own definition of poetry and every writer think his definition is the best... read more


A learned person once told me "Poetry is all about, what you feel & how you express it". I will agree to what you mentioned "It has the potential to relieve your pain".
Happy writing to you.

I love the way you have tried to define poetry. I love that you have used some interesting & unexpected phrases: “combination of rhyme, music, and vision” (love this). I feel that your rhyming is NOT organic, tho . . . it feels like you sometimes reach for a rhyme, instead of putting all your heart into the message you want to say: “relieve all the pains” . . . “convert snow into rain” . . . these do not sound true-to-life or meaningful, as far as the power of poetry . . . it sounds like you’re just going for the rhyme in some places. But overall, you do a great job of using specific examples & original observations (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

For me poetry is a tool through which I can express my feelings and ideas. This poem is really an good attempt to write that that down!! Also I think poetry exist to express a philosophical belief of one ways of living life!!
