A Poet Is Heard - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak

Turnabout shyness being lifted and put away in a
closet of past attitudes.

Today, moving forward, enjoying reciting poetry
in front of a group.

It's titillating, wonderful, watching other's eyes
upon you, sparks of interest emanating from them.

All eyes focused on a poet, listening intently to
what has been created never before in life.

An original poem being read for the first time - a
time for being born.

Life is enhanced with each new thought of future
reading - a natural high - a feeling of well-being.

Knowing now, that you're somebody special - you're
a poet being listened to.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

This is how it felt when reciting my poetry in front of others for the very first time ever.

    Crossing your fingers
    hoping your baby
    won't frown

    Leaving you
    looking like
    a silly
    clown!
    LOL!
    Good luck with your reading! ! ! (Report) Reply

    A very honest realization. Say or not a creator always awaits eagerly to get recognized of his/her creation. This recognition is of immense value to propel the creator to the new assignments. Recognition is a key factor for a creator to create more in a better way. (Report) Reply
