Poets in Our Lives

Do you have a Poet in your life ?
Your Son , Daughter or Wife ?
Or a Good Friend or Acquaintance ?
Someone at some distance ?
If not , do you feel the lack ?
That makes you look back ?
It may not be very evident
But every Poem is an event
And every Poet is real
Yet seeking the ideal
Poets are not easy to live with
But interesting to take and give with
If you are yourself a poet , great
But otherwise, importune Fate
To send you a poet around you
You will know when grace has found you !

( Amita Sarjit Ahluwalia )

    Oh, yeah, my father was a poet! I am still trying to escape/survive the consequences of this fact… Five wives, numerous kids, suicide, kidnapping, abandonment… A whole array of tragic events and, on top of that, I have inherited some of his talent… Great Poem!

    Beautiful poem.Yes poets are a unique set of people. May be difficult to live with, but without them this earth would be less beautiful.
