Standing Still


I have nothing to say
And I am saying it
And that is poetry.

Hmmmm...Allen Ginsberg said, in one of this better known poems, I think, though I can't remember which, so I could be completely wrong, "I have nothing to say and I'm saying it"...but without the "and that is poetry"...which I don't know if Ginsberg would've agreed with...though I'm not sure about that, either...clearly, I'm not sure about much, but like the picture, and am enjoying exploring your blog....

കുറെ കാലമായി ഇവിടെ വന്നു പോയിട്ട്.ഇവിടെ ഇപ്പോള്‍ ഞാന്‍ അശ്വതിയുടെ പഴയ പോസ്റ്റുകള്‍ കണ്ടിരിക്കുകയാണ്. എല്ലാം ഒന്നിനൊന്ന് മനോഹരമായിരിക്കുന്നു! വീണ്ടും തിരിച്ചെത്താമെന്ന് ഓര്‍ത്തു കൊണ്ട്...സ്നേഹപൂര്‍ വ്വം...കേരനാട്ടില്‍ നിന്നും.....pts

Loved the quote Ash. However the pleasure was double to see the bright pink flower composition on the top bar.
Very Vibrant !!!

I'm saying nothing Ash.

Is that poetry?
I don't think so.

The blocks of wood are starting to wink at me. Time for lunch.

Bye Bob.

Hello ...

Hi,

I was reading ur blog posts and found some of them to be very good.. u write well.. Why don't you popularize it more.. ur posts on ur blog ‘Standing still’ took my particular attention as some of them are interesting topics of mine too;

BTW I help out some ex-IIMA guys who with another batch mate run www.rambhai.com where you can post links to your most loved blog-posts. Rambhai was the chaiwala at IIMA and it is a site where users can themselves share links to blog posts etc and other can find and vote on them. The best make it to the homepage!

This way you can reach out to rambhai readers some of whom could become your ardent fans.. who knows.. :)

Cheers,
Ray
