A. Madhavan's last comments on poems and poets

  • POEM: Fears Keeping Others Bound by RoseAnn V. Shawiak (8/12/2015 9:24:00 PM)

    A thoughtful and thought-provoking poem. I favour intellectual discourse in
    poems, which otherwise tend to be inspired by impressions rather than ideas. Thanks. Details
    do vivify verse. Since old verse forms and rhyme schemes and syllable counts have
    been exhaustively explored by the famous, we may explore the revival of prose
    poems based on contemporary issues, technological allusions, so long as the writing is readable
    to our kind of literates, even if not rhetorical like W. Whitman or James Joyce.

  • POEM: Silent Sleep The Dead by Valsa George (7/22/2015 10:08:00 PM)

    Thanks to Poet Valsa, my Friend who is both a teacher and a writer, I lighted on this
    500th poem she has posted in PH, to share with all of us who like to read poetry, especially
    by people who love literature and its refractions in life's variegated Muses. This
    poem reminds me of Thomas Gray's famous Elegy in a Country Churchyard.. I like Valsa George's lines on the Sleep of Death as a leveller, and wish
    she continues to encourage readers to find ideas and impressions with resonance in our
    modern urban, suburban, new-rich, new-poor lives.

  • POEM: All My Life, A Song by Ananta Madhavan (6/4/2015 9:23:00 PM)

    So pleased you caught the mood. I think a modern composer, John Cage, valued silence as
    a musical interlude. I seldom recapture the Song, but luckily it is not 'a brain-worm' like a
    jingle or a reversal tune of a fancy car. AM
