April Poetry Month Day 25 Poem: PremaBhakti

Today's poem is based on one of the Narad Bhakti Sutra. Narad Bhakti sutra are short keys to Bhakti told as a line of 4-5 words, comprising of one sutra. Narad Bhakti Sutra teach us Bhakti, it's meaning, forms, ways of practicing and realizing Bhakti, famous Bhaktas who attained the Bhaktiyoga, in these sutras. The beauty of the Narad Bhakti Sutra is they're simple to understand yet carry profound meaning in fewer words. I think they are best one-line poems written on Bhakti.

The sutra I chose for today's poem is the second Narad Bhakti sutra:

"Sa twasmin parampremroopa"

Meaning: The Bhakti is in the supreme love of the God.

April Poetry Month Day 22 Poem: Frames

Three weeks of the April poetry month have already passed. It's difficult to believe just one week is remaining. During these days I would feel stressed out to write the poems. I couldn't figure out the reason behind it. I had a discussion with my brother regarding current writing struggle. He noticed the issue as frames. The insightful discussion has inspired me today's poem. It's dedicated to the frames.

Mind flooded with ideas
Heart flooded with emotions
But words?
Words not ready to appear on paper
Dear words, where are you?
