Soul of a Poet


Soul of a Poet

Conscience excites innate wisdom
wisdom enthuses intuitive knowledge

Knowledge can be an instinctive ability
ability is a gauge for a human talent

Talent depicts various interest
interest may flow from emotion

Emotion lit profound expression
expression can create poetry

Poetry is a beauty painted with words
words of poem written by the soul of a poet

    Nicely expressed and composed with such beautiful
    thoughts. The poems are the heart and soul of the writer.
    All the emotions that are given to man is poured into it.

    be found there. very inspiring indeed. (Report) Reply

    Yes, poetry is beauty painted in words and it comes from the soul of a poet! To put it in a different way, emotion felt when expressed in rhyming verse is poetry! ! Beautiful! ! (Report) Reply
