This is a re-posting of the poem which was posted over a year back as a reminder and also to share it with our new friends/members who have joined p4poetry in the interim.
Would like from readers their thoughts/comments on this understanding…..

Why frown for crown ….!

If for a poem there is no visible crown,
Why should there be at all any frown.

We pen poems to express something.
which is within, trying to find expression.
Something about which we have some opinion,
And also for poetry, enough love & passion

When we have written we use our discretion
To analyze whether we are correct in our expressions
And only when the poem meets thus, our conviction.
We post it to obtain our valued friends opinions.
And their first hand evaluation of our poems.
The phenomenon is thus complete & in momentum.
poem having found its readership and representation

So far the poet is concerned, he posts his poems,
Only after in his own mind he has crowned his poem,
The readership & comments serve to let him know,
When his crowning was proper, where and when erroneous
Leading him towards bettering art of poetry & skill improvement..
In love with his passion for poetry and in it, finding divine fulfillment.

Often the poems considered as brilliant by author,
Are not found or considered so, by the readers.
And the ones considered “so so” by author, readers give high rating,
making the author to be always reviewing his own understanding.

The facility of posting the poems itself is indeed a boon,
Never to be forgotten or misused for whatsoever any reason,
So also responsibility of readers commenting to be always truthful & encouraging
And if & when any poem becomes an editors pick & is crowned,
Rejoice but do not frown when not crowned, for all poems wear an invisible crown,
whether crowned or not crowned …..!

    i am fully agree with this approach..t

    So far the poet is concerned, he posts his poems,
    Only after in his own mind he has crowned his poem,

    When his crowning was proper, where and when erroneous

    so lets enjoy the invisiable crown..

    Congrates sir..

    Right said Dada…I’m agree with you…and personally don’t care about it…

    But what do you think if someone tells you if you do this and that or don’t, you will be or will not be able to get crown?

    And it’s not a personal thing…it affects every member here on this platform…

    I hope for the betterment & will also try my level best.

    Congrats for re-posting this creation Dada, where every member can share his/her thought… 🙂

      Thank you very much for commenting and being frank in the matter.
      Your predicaments will soon be addressed and dissolved. I may assure that your understanding that one man is responsible for crowning here is incorrect.

    Gurudev My suggesion for crown..
    1 pick at least 5 regular deserving learned experience Members from Poet community..
    2 every one can rate between 1 to 5 to the poem..
    3 Total marks will be 5*5=25
    4 one who get points more than 18 poem should crowned..
    5 Probably this procedure will be time taking but it will be transparent…

      @Sinner, kai kaviyon ke rate itne high hain ki vo rating dene ki jurrat hi nahi karate .. 😉

        आपका कमेन्ट समझ नहीं आया .

        यहाँ crowning पर बात हो रही है, rating पर नहीं .

        Rating तो हर member पढी हुई कविताओं पे कर सकता है पर दुःख की बात ये है की बहुत कम rating करने का अपना फ़र्ज़ निभा रहे हैं . मैं तो उस समय की बाट देख रहा हूँ जब rating करनेवाले members नहीं rating करने वालों से ज्यादा होंगे. जब ये होगा तब authors को अपनी कविता पर ज्यादा सही feedback मिलेगा
        आप अपनी तरेफ़ से रचनाओं पर अपनी rating देते हैं या नहीं …?.

        @dp
        अब देखिये यहीं .
        तीन मेम्बरों ने कमेन्ट दी हैं पर सिर्फ एक ने rating दी है …
        समझे आप.

          @Vishvnand, I really salute this ideal observation & reaction sir ji. Thats why I revisited here not only for vote but also for your kind reaction. I really feel sorry, if I heart you.
          Thanks a ton sir ji. 🙂

            Why feel sorry, not at all. Your comment never hurt me, they always touch & tickle my heart, so also your poems..

      @Sinner
      Thanks for your suggestion. It is one method no doubt but is not practical to be introduced for various reasons in the present situation. We have system which has the same objective but is different in procedure, such that it is objective with least scope for any subjectivity. The poem is crowned not the author and no one is singularly authorized to crown.
