Poem: Is Poetry Dead?

"Poetry is dead"
"Who says it?"
"Poetry is dead!
Who writes it passionately?
Who reads it passionately?
Who loves poetry anymore?
Poetry is dead"

For Peace and Purity -- The Holy Month of Ramadan

Ramadan Kareem dear friends! The sacred ninth month of Islamic calendar -- Ramadan has begun. Narayankripa blogs primarily about Indian culture and traditions, but today I'm blogging on Ramadan as a spiritual seeker and also as someone who believes Advaita.

I am using the word Ramadan instead of Ramzan without any hesitation. I have read many times about the Ramadan-Ramzan word usage etymology and cultural roots, but Ramadan sticks in my mind because of my childhood memories.

April Poetry Month Day 30 Poem: PoetryPuja

It's the last day of daily poetry celebration. But that doesn't end the poetry celebration. We may not meet every day, but our revered poetry celebration will continue in future as well.

We began the celebration with SaraswatiPuja with a prayer to Maa Saraswati for the successful celebration. And we've succeeded today. Today's poem is a gratitude poem to Maa Saraswati for fulfilling my Sankalpa and completing the April Month PoetryPuja.

Thank you, dear friends, for joining me in this endeavor.  It became possible because you were with me. Thank you.

I reach out to find myself
in my struggle with the dark days

Poem for the day is an algorithm for success like the one we write in programming. Once we have the algorithm, writing personalized success code is easier. I hope this poem may reverberate in our heart before we quit.
