Thanks Amity for a beautiful prompt!!!
“Can I Ever Be Her Knight?”
"Two squares horizontally
And one square vertically,
Or two squares vertically and
One square horizontally...,"
When she was teaching him
How the Knight moved
On the chess board
He was thinking
“Can I ever be her Knight?”
Lessons had continued, but he
Didn’t learn the right moves
And so, couldn’t be….
good one. He became good at playing chess but didn't really learn to tell her how he felt about her.ReplyDelete
The heart is the biggest chessboard. No move is ever made with certainty of outcome.ReplyDelete
Indeed, chess moves are easier compared to those to win over a heart. :) Good one.ReplyDelete
A good one, Ramesh. He can never win her heart if he thinks of and treats her like one of the boys.ReplyDelete
that is fun...and good one...yes!!ReplyDelete
Nice poem, the horse's movement is vital and useful in many plays for his ability to threaten without exposure.ReplyDelete
LOVED this one, captivatingly perfect.
You really can catch the feeling of the human soul.
Clever and inspirational. Beautiful and amazing job!
You start talking about chess and i will get snoozy...:(ReplyDelete
You start inviting me to play chess and I will get giddy...:(
Sadly, a very interesting game for the intellectuals doesn't attract my mind at all - i believe i am a dumb lot :(
But your poem is beautiful, interesting and wonderful!
Playing chess isn't that easy, but to tell your feelings to the one your are adoring is much more difficult.ReplyDelete
Very well-crafted, you have a special gift with words!ReplyDelete
Very clever, Ramesh. xReplyDelete
this one is very cleverly done.ReplyDelete
enjoyed the beautiful vocabulary you used here, smiles.
A good one this is!ReplyDelete
How romantic this poem is Ramesh. I love the dual definition of being a knight.ReplyDelete
A beautiful, courtly love poem. Thank you.ReplyDelete
Woww.. this was awesome, Rameshji!! You really brought life to such an innate object, and you lent your heart and feeling to every man waiting for "that one" chance...ReplyDelete
Beautifully rendered... with just a touch of sadness, and just a pinch of humor... really well written!!
Oh.. and thanks a HEAP for the loveliest words you left on my most recent poem... I can say without a shadow of a doubt that it was one of the sweetest compliments I have EVER received as a writer!! THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH!!!!
Learning to move on the chessboard but never learning the lessons of life...aren't we all like that.ReplyDelete
Again, very nicely expressed. I like the way you think Sood sir.
