Modern Poets Are Keeping Poetry Alive

This world has always been a land of poets. We grew up reading Rabindranath Tagore, Amir Khusro, Mirza Galib, Robert Frost, Sarojini Naidu, T.S. Elliot, William Wordsworth, and many others. I am old school, I still prefer to read books, being outdoors, write whenever I can. It was surprising to find that some of the modern poets are still keeping the poetry alive.

I met Swati Omprakash who ran an Instagram handle, MissDrunkPoetry. Obviously, the title definitely got my attention towards one of the humble modern poets. When I approached her about publishing some of her handpicked poems, she agreed to it. She mentioned that it was her honor, in fact, it is my honor to have had the chance to publish her poems here.

Swati Omprakash one of the modern poets

Swati Omprakash is a poet, storyteller, and an observer. Her chosen pen name “Miss Drunk Poetry” was an inspiration from a post called “Be Drunk” by Charles Baudelaire. She has been a reader and writer from her college life. However, when in her mid-twenties she published her first book.

Her belief in the power of words and the way they touch so many souls is as strong her life. She quotes, “Art is the only way to reach someone’s heart, and everything that reaches our heart is an art in itself.”

Here are the poems by one of our Modern poets.

1. Become the Poetry

10. A little extra love might help

It is such a common misconception that all poets have had their heart broken, some are inspired by Love too.

I don’t think anything can summarize life so beautifully.

12. Mother

I agree with that Swati, there’s nothing we say or do will ever sum up a Mother.
