    Dear Sundari
    A wow to you! Your FB itself sounds like poetry. Everyone in IL knows how creative you are and no wonder you write poems with such ease. I am happy that ILites are able to make something out of my lines and appreciate it too! Dont be surprised if all this appreciation goes to my head and I load you more with such stuff!

    Dear SS
    Thank you for your encouraging words. I feel almost like a KG student returning home proudly with a star marking from his teacher for his efforts!
    I have realised one thing. If writing prose like what I have been doing all these days does not require much of an effort, to write poetry one has to think poetically first. The way we look at the sea for writing a poem is entirely different from how we look at it when we want to write an essay.
    The bug has bitten me no doubt but it remains to be seen whether it is going to make me a victim of poetry writing or I'll simply scratch the bitten area and forget about it!

    Dear Sudha
    You bet I could not reach my back with my inflexible hands and so, I sought the help of my adorable grand daughter who was only too ready and willing to lend a hand!

    Dear Chithra
    If you intend growing old to reach maturity, I suggest you take your own suggestion seriously. If you take a U turn now, you may may start from senility and reach 'poetic' maturity!.

    Dear PS
    You are not the only one who is missing the FB of the chindumudinjifier. Add me too.!
    Thanks a lot for your words of appreciation. The way I am balding fast, wearing a cap may become imperative soon. A few feathers at that time would be really handy!

    You are all wanting to see me, rather, waiting to see me like a Red Indian Chief, of late?
    No problem, anything, for the pleasure of ILites. Don't think I am on par with great poets like Cheeniya. No way, PS !
    Love,
    Chithra.

    Dear Cheeniya sir ,
    Every line of your very first poem is adorable ! I liked the second para ( or stanza? ) very much ! Beautiful expression ! The quality of your poem is like Bharathidhaasan’s poem : “ Kaalaiyilam paridhiyile avalaikkanden “ - please don’t say I ‘m exaggerating – you have really won as a poet too ! Hoping to see your contributions in ‘ Dhinam oru kavidhai ‘ too . Thangal kavithaippayanam sirakka en kanivaana vaazhthukkal !
    Regards ,
    Indhu .

    Dear Indhu
    I am overwhelmed by your appreciation. When I titled this blog, 'The poetry bug has bitten me too', I really meant it. Seeing more and more ILites becoming poetic, I could not resist my temptation to try one myself. I am aware that it can not be classified as poetry in terms of the rules but as an expression of my innermost feelings, I guess I have succeeded a bit.
    Such appreciation may induce me to write more!
    Sri

    Dear chith ,
    I could see the depth of your fantasy ( love ) through the second line of your nice poem :
    " See you in the scorching heat of the summer sun " ! Amazing ! ! ! I really cherished the rhyme & selection of words ! Nice one ! Expecting more contributions from you , my friend !
    Love ,
    Indhu .
