A Poem by Aishangi Chakraborty

What does poerty mean to me?

Is it the flow of ryming words

Or the power of of emotional verse?

Is the deapth of the heart’s desires

Or the meaning that inspires?

Poetry to me is the calming sense of bliss.

The charming smile or the passionate kiss.

The burning fire, the eyes of a lier.

The smoldering ashes, the mind that aspire.

The legendery poets found beauty in the ruins

Found love in wastelandsand, strength in renewing.

I see poetry in the fleeting bird’s wings.

In the heart of a believer, in the baker’s brewing.

As poetry is something to be savoured and tasted.

Not just a tought that go wasted.

It’s the art of experssion, the power of possession.

It is the warmth of words where my heart rested.
