Moment to Moment
To comment, now seems like a meaningless activity. What to say, that you’ve captured a splendid moment for the posterity? Or to express concern ‘for how long’ or even raise that dreadful question: ‘is it calm before the storm’? I can just go on but I can never tell you about the aesthetic experience you’ve provided. “A Poem should not mean But be.” As you know, that’s how Archibald MacLeish concludes Ars Poetica. And yes, once again I’ve a link for you, a poetry blog in Malyalam I enjoy a lot http://vimatham-vimatham.blogspot.com/ thanks a lot, sir.
First things first, my knowledge of literature is very limited. The piece ‘quiet’ is really good…haa…who am I to say that, who am I to judge. Okay, but I can confidently say that it appealed to me, a flash, a brilliant vision. “me and mine” detached? Could you please elaborate a bit more, Sir? (I had written something thinking that I understood it, but then I realized that I didn’t.)
To comment, seems meaningless But reading commentsStill enjoyable
“Dont drive every arbitary statement to its logical conclusion. Because, most of the time I don't know what I am speaking about. Let the vague things remain vague, because truth is vague; it cannot be captured within a set, predetermined shape.”Venu Chettan: I agree. Once John Matthew told me something similar. However, 'me and mine detached from myself and even I do not exist'…You and yours detached from yourself, somehow I have this feeling that there are three entities. But then, you say, ‘even I do not exist.’ I’m confused, may be my lack of understanding or inability to reach the level of thinking you seem to have attained. But I can understand the process you’re talking about detaching yourself from your poem. Thanks a lot for your patient replies. Me wrote a poem on the same subject? You mean, I told you so? I’m clueless.
I absolutely agree with Vijay. Venuji I was struggling hard to comment and even I felt it to be meaningless. But I have thoroughly enjoyed reading all your comments. and the poem as well :-)
http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=venugopalSorry for the Off Topic, but this is interesting.
a picture perfect post card.thats all i cud say.
Pardon me, friends. I have deleted my comments under this poem since I now find them discussing too high philosophical matters, which I had not in any way internalised.-:)
shouldnt have deleted your comments.often we write more that what we consciously mean.
Why have you deleted all your comments... I often re-read them :-)
i sounded a little too high-brow, which i am actually not. suddenly i remembered i have always been the funniest joker in any circle. i was getting carried away by this blog business!
