! A Poets Mind


In a poets mind,
silence has stopped chatter,
traffic noise, childish play.

A hum from a distance sings,
words begin to congregate.

Choosing nouns, verbs and
adjectives, words collected
from the gentle light…..

Lines of tenderness and love
merge into a lovers pledge.

Music for her mind,
sonnet of love and promise
to adore forevermore.

    A POET'S MIND IS TRUELY AN EXTRAORDINARY PLACE! IT HAS LOVE OF NATURE, MUSIC OF LIFE, AND PROMISES OF A BETTER DAY! IN CONTRAST, HIS DAILY LIFE COULD BE RATHER ORDINARY! YET HE EXPRESSES HIMSELF IN A LANGUAGE WHICH IS EXTRORDINARY! ! !

    Hey thanks for your lovely poem
    So inspired by mine ‘words’ haan
    That’s great
    You said it right
    A conglomeration of words
    Silencing the city’s chatter
    And cascading down to the
    Tranquility of tenderness and love

    and 10++++
    lots of love anjali (Report) Reply

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
