My desperate attempts at poetry :D

If I could have any one wish, it would be to be a poet. I absolutely LOVE and ADORE poetry!! Isn't it wonderful to be able to pen down your feelings in a way that will please not only you but also the readers.. Something that the readers can identify with, something they can read when they feel blue and smile! :-)

I always wonder and admire how poets can actually knit those perfect words together to create a magical world, where I tend to get lost!! :) Poetry is undoubtedly one of the greatest forms of art. But unfortunately, I'm terrible at it :'( I just CANNOT write poems. I've tried a lot to come up with some good ones, one at least...but without any luck :( I want to write at least one good poem in my life.

My sister Rashmi is a good poet, though :) She has written many good ones. When I was young(when I was in school that is) I always tried to be like her. She used to send her poems to the newspaper's magazine section and they used to get published. I somehow managed to write a poem and sent it to the newspaper. When they did not publish it in the following week's copy, I sent the same poem twice again till they got fed up and finally published it :D  I used to try my hand at whatever she was good..often in vain. But try, I did :D I still have the habit actually.. :D

I had done one such desperate attempt at poetry. And it resulted in a 'disaster'. I am putting the poems here.. Read them and have a good laugh :D "Sumne nakbidi" :D

My first:

ನನ್ನ ಗೆಳತಿ ಮನ್ವಿತ
ಅವಳ ಮನಸ್ಸು ಅಮೃತ
ಎಂಥ ಚೆಂದ ನಕ್ಕರೆ
ಅವಳ ಮಾತು ಸಕ್ಕರೆ
ಅವಳಿಗಿಷ್ಟ ನೀಲಿ ಬಣ್ಣ
ಅವಳಿಗೊಬ್ಬ ಅಣ್ಣ
ದೇಹ ಬೇರೆಯಾದರು ನಮ್ಮಿಬ್ಬರದು ಒಂದೇ ಮನ
ಸದಾ ಇರಲಿ ಈ ಗೆಳೆತನ!! :)

My second.. On Rash: :D

Rashmi is my sister
She is my well wisher.
She is very intelligent
She has many sentiments (..:D)
She is very beautiful
And also helpful.
She loves me
I too love you dear Rashmi.. :) :)

My Birthday:

It was my birthday
The most wonderful day!! :)
I invited some guests.
I gave them sweets,
They gave me gifts.
It was a feast!!

"Happy birthday to you,
May God bless you!"
Shower of blessings
From the gathering.

I had crossed ten years
Which made me cheer
It was the most happiest moment
And  the most memorable moment too. :-)

 A Dream!

Up above the sky, on the moon
I sat up and two fairies came soon.

"Come on dear
We will go to our world
We will enjoy there
And come back to your world!"

Flying in the sky
Looking at the stars
They were looking at me
And I was feeling shy ;)

There came a stream
Where we were having a nice time
I heard someone calling me
And it was just a dream!! :(


She filled my heart with joy
Put my sorrows at bay
Shared my sadness
And also gladness

She was a bee
I was a flower :D
She sucked my sorrows
And made me cheer :)

She came as a ray
And went away!!
Who can it be?
None other than my friend. :)

My Pet!

I wanted a pet
But I had one thing to get
It was permission from my mother
Who is not a pet lover :)

I knew it was difficult
But I tried my best
She said no to my request
Which made me upset :D

Days passed and it was my birthday
I was overjoyed!!

My mother gave me a present
Which I eagerly opened.
Inside it was a cute puppy
Which made me very very happy!! :D

Signing off!! :D
