Abstract Poetry

Satyakam Ray

A pen on the desk
Papers stacked and thin
Nothing written yet
No, riveting lines
or, Whimsical whine

Circling here and there
Coming around a bit late
Not putting out here
A hint or idea
Coming to the matter straight

Did I mention its poetry?
A stupendous blabber
or unnerving trivia
focusing on clusters
where word hover

Depicting love and emotion
Through poetic vision
Layers of abstraction
Causing a little confusion
Rather sly interpretation

The Pen still lies there
Something written now
Curious to find out
but undecided how?

The message is clear and loud
Still surrounded by mystic shrouds,
A buried treasure
or a poet’s sadistic pleasure
Riveting exploration is a surety
if you interpret abstract poetry
