Adversity

I know not
What is adversity.
I know not
What is desirable,
What is undesirable.
I know not pain,
I know not pleasure.
But I am writing poetry
And through this writing
I like to feel you,
Touch you within truth.
I know truth is there
In me and it can only
Come out in silence in words.

Paul Valery said that The dream is knowledge Sometimes I think writing poetry is like immersing oneself in a dream hoping truth and knowledge will come from it. I think you are a very great poet, gajanan Mishra. My utmost respects. Tom Billsborough
