Women ..



Its Women's Day today, the day to celebrate the kind without whom the world is incomplete. I could write more but I am too overwhelmed. An Ode to you Eve:

From the first words a baby says
To the final whisper on my last days

The inspiration to write, the courage to fight
The failures and fears; the sky and sunlight

The teacher, the angel or the bitch
The nightingale, the nurse or the one to stitch

The doting mother to the loving wife
From my first heart break to my last crime

She is every where, she is Life
The Woman

Happy Women's Day

very sweetly done :)
i loved it!

Som said...

@Gautam: You were out of action but you even stopped visiting my Blog, after writing each poem I expected your comments but you were not there .. never the less you are back ...

:)

Som said...

@Ghazala Khan: Thank you for conferring me with this honour. I will be glad to give the interview. Keep following this humble blogger.

:)

Som said...

@Seher: Thank you ... you know how much a woman means to me, she is the world to me. I just hate to think that in some places on this beautiful earth .. mother earth .. women is downgraded, down trodden and said and deemed to be nothing compared to men .. I find myself helpless ...

Sophie said...

Liked it,

"She is every where, she is Life
The Woman"

That's why women are so much more interesting to men than men are to women..!!

Som said...

@sphie: women are more interesting to men than men are to women ?!
This is injustice, you want to say that men are less interesting than women ?!

WarmSunshine said...

oh wow... that was so sweeeeeet :)

Sophie said...

No, I am saying women are so much more interesting to men than men are to women..!!

the pink orchid said...

happy woman's day to you too..

i want to follow this blog but I didnt find the 'follow' widget :)
so i am blogrolling you..

:)

Som said...

@Warm Sunshine: Thanks for coming ! :) Is it sweet, if it is .. it is because of all the women who has influenced my Life .. :)

Som said...

@Sophie: Thats what I am saying.. why is it so .. why don't women find men interesting ?! Aren't they as formative to their lives as women are to men ?

Som said...

@Pink Orchid: Hey thanks for blogrolling me, you can find the 'follow' widget on my other Blog, Limit is Limitless ...

Any how :) .. put in some words about the works of this armature poet too .. it helps .. :)

the pink orchid said...

sure .. the poem was a delightful read, and shows that it was straight from the heart.. though I have a problem with the labels to this poem.. But no comments as its author's own discretion ..

Som said...

@ Pink Orchid: I know which label you have a problem with ... :P

see we all have to resort to some sort of marketing .. I will remove it .. :)

the pink orchid said...

marketing.. how does that label help you with marketing? forgive me if i am being dumb... but i sure am curious... :) and by the way congratulations for getting interviewed by TPS :)

Som said...

Well the labels are like key words which help you to get hits for the random blog searcher; if you had seen the words in the label it covered the whole gamut of reader domains ... angel, wife, poem .. :P

But yes it was mindless on my part .. So I have removed it .. :)

Som said...

@Pink Orchid: Yeah even I was amazed how come they are interviewing me .. as my blog is mainly on poems .. and not even that popular .. :P

the pink orchid said...

oh now I see the point.. :) I didnt know that..
it's just that a poem dedicated to 'Eve' labelled like that especially on women's day seemed odd that's all..


if it was a story about a girl being that and mindlessly breaking hearts and playing with emotions.. I would have given you more suggestions for labels :)

Sophie said...

A man gives many question marks, however, a woman is a whole mystery.

Arnav said...

A fine tribute to women ... :)
yes ! women are important and interesting :)

The line which said it all is, "
"She is every where, she is Life
The Woman"

R.K. said...

Excellent yaar !!
I can just enjoy reading that right now, no thoughts are coming to me for comments

Happy Women's Day !! to all

Som said...

@pink orchid: Even I felt it was wrong thats why I removed it :)

well believe it or not I never think bad about my exs because I have learned something from each one of them ... they are all part of me .. so that reflects on what I write .. never call any women a @#$%h :)

Som said...

@sophie: frankly all women are not a mystery .. most of them are very easily resolvable (as same with men ) but yes the few tough ones can surely give you sleep less nights .. phew .. :)

Som said...

@Arnav: Thanks Brother .. well I had to come up with something to sum up the poem so those lines .. great that even appreciated them ..

the pink orchid said...

couldnt agree with you more.. thank you.. :)

the pink orchid said...

couldnt agree with you more.. thank you.. :)

americanising desi said...

such a b.e.a.u.t.i.f.u.l d.i.s.a.s.t.e.r she is aint it ;)
j/k
love being woman!

Som said...

@Anurag: ture, so true ...

Som said...

@seher: thats something .. Beautiful Disaster ... only you can come up with such quips .. !!

Sophie said...

It's not because I think so, but its truth, ask any man...!!

Som said...

@sophie: :0, shouldn't the question be asked from a woman that why they think men are less intriguing ?!

Sophie said...

Answer will be: "but natural" :)

Som said...

@sophie: You have been saying it .. but natural .. obvslly etc etc.. :P

BUT every theory most have a proof or else it has to be an axiom ... SO ?!!

Sophie said...

It has to do with their immense layering, an emotional 'nuancing' that is the creation of millennia of facing up to difficult odds. In comparison, men are almost two dimensional and emotionally lesser beings.

They're harder to read and understand. And that makes life pretty interesting.

Men tend to be more direct and open.

And ye More poems are written on women than men.

Luscious Sealed Lips said...

That was complete.

A very sweet gesture to wish every woman.

Thank you.

Kisses.

Swats said...

Well written
Thnx for dropping by :)

Swats

Som said...

@ Sophie: well great you came up with the points so aptly. I can't help but agree with you.

But the last point you made can also be due to the fact that most of the poets are Men ... but yes the subject of the poems is usually women .. :)

Som said...

@ Luscious sealed lips:

Thank You for visiting and good that you said its complete .. yes it is complete in its incompleteness ... as there is a lot I could have written ...

By the way thanks for the 'kisses' from those Luscious sealed lips :)

Keep visiting ...

Som said...

@Swats: Thank you for coming .. Its my pleasure to follow your blog ..

A more critical comment would have helped me get better next time ..

keep visiting and commenting .. :)

Sophie said...

workhard said...

@workhard: :) .. what is a life without the struggle ..

workhard said...

True, totally agree with you on that...

Som said...

@workhard: ... at least someone agrees with my view point on life.. even if it is in the Blogsphere .. :)
