April: national month of hope

April is the month of hope and your cool poem is just perfect to reblog, Nirant. Thanks for writing and sharing this! 😀

You were like…

The sun that shines on

Cold winter morning.

Like a rainbow drawn on

rainy skies,

That were grey & unpromising.

You were the…

The full moon painted on a

Pitch black night,

Like the stars that danced among

Each other across the sky,

Like the sun that sets after a tiring day,

And the sun that rises to mark a fresh start.

You were the promise of better,

You were a promise of Hope.

History of world poetry day

March 21st is World Poetry Day, an annual celebration of poems and poets adopted by UNESCO.

In 1999, during its 30th General Conference in Paris, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization declared March 21st as World Poetry Day. The aims are to support “linguistic diversity through poetic expression” as well as increase “the opportunity for endangered languages to be heard.”

World Poetry Day is the occasion to honour poets, revive oral traditions of poetry recitals, promote the reading, writing and teaching of poetry, foster the convergence between poetry and other arts such as theatre, dance, music and painting, and raise the visibility of poetry in the media.

Put my fears to sleep

“…and put my fears to sleep” Lovely poem!

Poems in a Coffer

The stars are mute tonight

The sky is in a silent phase

The wind has lost its music

And the moon has no story to tell

This taciturn aphonic night

Is what my heart abhors

So sing me a lullaby, will you?

And put my fears to sleep.
