Platter of words

being famished, malnourished of the words,

adorned on a sapphire platter, looking sumptuous,

but as I try to pick one of them, it disappears,

leaving behind thin air, devoid of those nouns,

adjectives, verbs and prepositions, I so desire,

but they are not for me to grab, and gobble down,

I am meant to sleep empty, without a trace

of something creative, to simmer in my mind,

the concoction of imagination, thus remains dried,

and I look for the flies with an incredible vision,

into the worlds of worlds of chronicles,

so that I could seize them into my fist and

appeal for a single ray of light, that could

awaken my senses, making me experience things,

agitating me to see new dreams, the slivers

of which can be scattered on the pages,

bringing to existence, the wondrous universes,

still unexplored, for me to step through,

and find that one fruit I could feast upon,

to fill up my drained urn with a fragment,

of a blessing of that miraculous muse


I am looking for poetry collaborations. If you would be interested in writing a poem with me, you can write to me at or you can leave your e-mail address in the comments section. Also, if you would like me to write about something/someone particular(like yourself… :-)), please do tell me. I would be glad to do so.

I am tagging it as the poem for 8 November for NaBloPoMo. I have also joined the team, Nano Poblano, in the leadership of wonderful Rarasaur. Do share your feedback and also, leave a link to one of your posts. Thank you.
