It is April and the month of Poetry. April is observed as the National Month of Poetry, also called as NaPoMo. I was keen on dedicating this month to Poetry and write a Poem every day, to celebrate the richness of this art form. I’ve always loved to express myself and Poetry was the best medium for me.
I have known that DP(Daily Post) conducts a writing challenge every week, so I decided to participate in this week and dedicate a poem to the challenge in regards to Poetry and I was surprised to know that DP too, was celebrating Poetry 🙂 So, here I have written a Poem called “The Purple Sponge”, it is an unusual poem title and the content showcases poetry as a purple sponge, where purple reflects royalty and gives an insight of how if poetry would have only been of the rich, what would life be like.
The Purple Sponge
What if poetry was a purple sponge-
the asset of the royal?
and fine words-
the legacy of the rich?
Then, thoughts would remain captive
within the beauty of material pleasures
and the world would be watered
with words wrung
from grandeur dreams.
And true happiness
would never be invented.
