Grace

Let lack of poetry
Be your grace sometimes.
Let lack of verbosity
Be your blessing at times.
Let lack of words
Be a penance for now.
Let lack of beauty
Make you glow awhile.

Day 2 of the National Poetry Month makes me ponder on why are we all writing so much, day in-day out. Let thoughts ferment, let words find meaning, let metaphors construct themselves out of thin air, let effort become effortless – and then give yourself to poetry. Today’s poem dedicated to the innumerable words we try to spout under the pressure of all those around us whose quill refuses to cease.
