Oh My Poem

I am not poetic
I try to jot down
thoughts that woos
my imagery world..
Each word jumbles..
that laden in mesh
quite in remnants
for a better catch..
I try to compose
those quintessence
in a poetic frame..

I wish,
if my musing
flow  naturally towards
the ocean of poem.

I wish,
if midst of drifting
if words dance and sing
with rhythmic rhymes of waves
If it encases into a shell
Shall it turns into a pearl.
