Q. Is this a poem that you are writing here?
A. I don’t know, never delved into this thought.

Q. You are writing in verse, so this must be meant to be a poem?
A. Ok agreed, this is a poem.

Q. But where are the heavy, intricate words which intellectuals use?
A. But I am not an intellectual and I like simple words, because that’s what
appeals to me in other people’s writings too.

Q. Where are the rhyming words, isn’t there rhyming in a poem?
A. When I write, it’s as if I am talking to a person, I don’t talk using rhyming
words in my daily conversations with people.

Q. So, you are a thinker who analyses everything.
A. I just write what comes to mind, what I feel like sharing with everyone.

Conclusion : Poem or not, I am just sharing what’s on my mind.

I am Sapna Dhyani. I write about everything that crosses my mind. I write about life as I see it and like to infuse humour into my blogs. I belong to Dehradun but now live in a new city after every two years, being an army wife. This uprooting of base every couple of years, setting up a new home in a new place, meeting new people and forging new friendships, exploring new cities; all this ensures that I go through and am blessed with a myriad of experiences.

  1. Dear Sapna , I really love to share your Pocketful of Dreams . Your views about poetry seem to match with those of mine .No poem is worth the name if it doesn’t touch your heart . Even your prose writings are poetic in their effect . Congrats for the beautiful expression !
