    The theme taken from Rajkumar's music video posted by wizard

    "If you come today, it's too early
    If you come tomorrow, it's too late"

    I know it sounds ridiculous, but the best of poets can take a seemingly ridiculous theme and transform it into something to be cherished. There are no rules per se, except that those two lines have to appear in the poem and hopefully make some sense. Let the poems come in!

    challenge in a poem..????
    well i think poems come from heart ... u cannot specially sit down and think abt it... that doesn't bring the charm in it...

    we write what we feel... not bcuz we have to...!!
    anyways thats just my way of thinking... no offence..

    I dispute that. Just because you cannot do it doesnt mean that others cant either. Good poets can always channel their process and mold it into a way that is conducive to such "contests" per se. No offence.

    I disagree though it is certainly easiest when it's spouting out but it can be forced out as well yet still be from the heart. Some people write because they have to...and are still good at it. I'd love to have that talent.

    The only thing these lines remind me of right now are timezones and the reason isn't even related to them.

    Well I agree to the statement in general,but honestly speaking it is the readers who can take a seemingly ridiculous theme and transform it into something to be cherished..
    I mean even the lines above don't make sense logically but if we try we can force some sense into it..If I were a poet I would merely interpret one of may meanings it could imply and illustrate it..the reader would either understand what I was trying to say or come up with his own interpretation...either way he/she likes the work irrespective of did he/she understand what the poet implied..

    Anyways I liked the challenge and I'd love to see how some of the great poets of IGT implement those lines..and its so far so good (with reference to Garima's work)..
