Poetry in Conversation

A friend ( who we'll affectionately refer to as "Small Wonder") and I found an interesting way of Killing time. We make poetry out of scrap! check it out...

SW:

Where art thou?
I'd like to ask thee
How u doin pai?
Are u taken or free?
;)

Pai:

Blessing is it,
Or is it a curse,
Free as I am,
To reply in verse.
:D

SW:

Free as you are
So am i!
Was goin thru friends
And saw sudhir pai.

Pai:

So good it is
To hear from thee
What friendly tidings
Do you bring for me?

SW:

Life is a drone,
It's just work and work.
Is it the same for you
Or do better things lurk?

Pai:

Life, a drone? is it?
A vacation is what you need,
To charge up your batteries,
Your creative cells doth plead.

SW:

A vacation has proved futile
For my sense i havent got back.
Sometimes sane sometimes senile
It's the fun that i think i lack :(

Pai:

Work life is hectic,
But it is not a bore,
I pray it's better,
For you in Mysore.

SW:

Not hectic as of yet,
But yes, it is a big bore
Staring all day at a black screen
Is more than just an eye sore!

Pai:

I thank thee for the pleasure,
I had a great time,
To speak of my listless life,
In lines of decent rhyme.

SW:

Haven't written like this
For donkeys years
Thought you would gladly oblige
For you possess the ear!

Pai:

These lines I’ll cherish,
And keep for posterity,
Some day I pray we meet,
And laugh at our preposterity.


:D, Thanks, Small Wonder! Orkut's never been so much fun! [:)]
Cheers!

long have I waited
to post my comment here
but my words just don't sound as
good as yours, I fear

constraint it may be
to make these lines rhyme
but no better way can there be
to kill some computer time

it's a skill i must acquire
writing rhyming nonsensical sense
for that however i require
a bit more aesthetic sense (?)

like i said...

it gets progressively harder
and the words take over the matter
as the rhyme takes over the sense
and there appear words like wherefore and hence

:D Good Stuff from you guys!

@sam:

nobody's a great poet,
neither SW nor I,
that does not stop us,
from giving it a try,
yours is a great attempt,
I do not lie,
and it'll get better,
so here's a high-five!

cheers!

Lines of poetry,
could measure a mile,
If only I knew,
It could elicit a smile.

Keep Smiling!
