Opposites

Opposites (A Shakespearan Sonnet)


Within this world so complex and so composite -
With various variances and selfishness -
We often find that allied are the opposites:
Bound they are by more than brotherliness.
No ‘victory’ can there be without ‘defeat’:
For one to win, should not the other lose?
The ‘cold’ ‘hot’ becomes meeting heat:
Into each other Opposites can also fuse!

‘Life’ is stalked by ‘death’ throughout its tread:
Partners they, and yet can never meet!
Wherever ‘death’ is born, there ‘life’ is dead:
Thus Opposites are denied the meeting feat.
They co-exist and fusion too, attain:
Yet mutual strangers Opposites do remain!

The Great Artist and Poet

Many many moons ago
great poet and artist
Italian Michelangelo
mastered the sonnet
and the madrigal,
writing them for his
'poetess rose'
Vittoria Colonna,
whose bright light
still glows.

Artistic achievements
remain high in glory
'The Last Judgment'
tells a virtuous story.
Having lived a long life
his sculptures are rife.
In Florence and Rome
tourists may view,
and the privilege is
theirs so to do.

To be or not to be

I will never write
A typical sonnet,
I am who I am
I will not thief,
thoughts of another poet
My reasoning, will never
Have the same beginning
Or the same ending,
I am who I am.
Take me this way
Or just walk away
Hear what I have to say,
Or cover your ears
See what I see
Or blind your eyes.
Feel my heart love
Or be numb to the likes of.
Take my scent,
Or let your mind ferment.
Immerse with my soul,
Or circa within your unsoul.

{ Random Thoughts On Poetry }

[Some poets write sonnets to die for
Other poets write haikus to live for
Some poets write gimmicks for fun
Other poets write lyrics for a Sun
Some poets like to rhyme and dine off
Other poets like to hymn and sign off
But all poets have one goal,
To write one thing and meaning another,
And, this is ironically permissible in poetry.

Poets come from diverse fields..................

[ON CLOTHES]

Poetry can be worn on a sock
as well as on a frock
Poetry hides in a hanky
as well as in a panty
Poetry can be written on a wall
as well as written in a hall
Poetry can climb a maxi
as well as lower itself in a mini
Poetry can be worn on a coat
as well as on an overcoat
Poetry is in a bra of a woman
as well as deep in her tavern.

[ON MEN]

Poetry doctors a Physician
As well as is hidden in medicines.
Poetry buries itself in a Funeral Director
As well as exposed in a Dead
Poetry can flower in a Garden
As well as in a Gardner
Poetry cuts in a Tailor
As well as in a Sailor
Poetry can fly in a Pivot
As well as in a Pilot
Poetry can set sail on a Captain
As well as on a Ship
Poetry can happen in a Train
As well as in a train driver.
Poetry paints a lonely Painter
As well as in his exquisite canvas.
Poetry is born in an alcoholics
As well is in the alcohol.
Poetry is in a smoker
As well as present in the cigarette.

[ON FEELINGS]

Poetry can happen when in Love
As well as when in Hate
Poetry creeps into an Emotion
As well as while in Motion
Poetry is in an Attire
As well as on a Satire
Poetry happens when you are Happy
As well as when you are Sad
Poetry rushes in when you are sympathetic
As well as when you are Empathetic.

[ON THINGS]

Poetry can be written on Money
As well as on Honey
Poetry can be on a Currency Note
As well as on a Fake Note
Poetry can be written in a book
As well as on a Page
Poetry can be hung on a Hat
As well as written on a Mat
Poetry can be built on Furniture
As well as on an Architecture
Poetry has time to sleep on a Bed
As well as on a Bed sheet.
Poetry can sit on legless chair
As well as eat breakfast on topless table

Alas! True poetry will always
come out of a Dreamer!
Because, Poetry is just about Anything!

- The End—
