My Recipe For Poetry


First of all

collect some dry leaves

of memories

Remove the dust

of time

by washing them

with tears

Sprinkle some

fresh dew drops

to rejuvenate them

Touch them with

utmost care

Because they have

become fragile

Close your eyes and

relive those moments

Please don't get lost there

Come back to the present moment

Now you are ready

to create poetry

Bring out the chain of

emotions from your heart

And transform them into

the pearls of words

Now arrange them

with love and care

And paint them

with the hues of your soul

And poetry is ready

Try my recipe

Follow these steps


And you will see

the reflection of

your soul in your poetry.
