A Quest on Overdrive … :)

An eccentric rambler on life's lessons and mercies, found and lost… :)



Where would poetry fit in
In the platter I might serve,
In the Banquet here?

Poetry? I wince, then, at the tone of utter disdain
That persona within delivers it with
Poetry, in deed. Indeed!

Yet, I refrain, from that knee jerk response
I always make.
Usually in retreat, from such disdain
Even from the self
Though that self be the one
That sends it, arrow sharp!

So, to poetry then.
Or what passes for such like, here.

This here, plain fare
Is but seasoned with
Homely, wholesome, tangy wit
Peppered with self deprecation

But, served with an indefatigable hope
That it will resonate
As it did, when it served itself to me 🙂

Ambitious as it may seem
A scarce month after a challenge
I seek again, with renewed hope

A chance to find words again.

A rambler, pretends to be a teacher, loves to dream, and go on Quixotic Quests in the Realm of Romance With Life...

  1. And so starts another serial
    With poetry as material
    Tag along, Guys
    We might surprise
    With terrific or trash, trendy or trivial!

    • Surprise, more trash than terrific, more trivial would be the norm should I last the month, Gulshan!

      But then, you shall elevate each one, as you did, the Month of February, with your wonderful Limericks. If nothing else, the readers should come in for the treat in the comments 🙂 🙂 Thank you so very much!
