Poetry - Poem by Marilyn Shepperson

Sit back, relax, let your mind go free
Chasing down the paths of poetry
Tumble thoughts around in your head
Wonder whether to use this word or that
Rhyme and reason do not matter
It's rhythm that counts, but above all
Is being able to convey unto others
The pictures that you're seeing behind closed eyes

    I love the idea of 'conveying to others what we see behind closed eyes.' That is such a great idea! (Report) Reply

    Rhym is not all important but rhythum is. To me if it aint got rhythum
    it aint poetry. But then I`m an old man set in my beliefs (Report) Reply
