The Symmetry Of Poetry


The symmetry of poetry
Brings harmony indeed,
As if its rhymes were meant to be
In order to succeed...
And fashioned into fancy things,
Adorned with vibrant words,
As if to fly on silver wings
Or stay like hummingbirds...

The symmetry of poetry
Brings truths and so much more,
As if the poets playfully
Brought splendours to the fore...
Abiding, thus, resplendent there
For readers' sweet repose,
With inspirations to compare
From those each poet chose...

The symmetry of poetry
Brings order now and then,
As if to set the spirit free
Just like each poet's pen,
Which swirls and dances cross the page
And switches line-to-line,
Content to be there, centre stage,
To serve some grand design...

The symmetry of poetry
Depends on self-control,
The editing proficiency
Towards a higher goal...
Such that the readers feast awhile,
Forget each worldly woe,
Perhaps permit a smirk or smile,
At least I would hope so...

The symmetry of poetry,
What pleasures can arise,
Perhaps a touch of jollity,
Perhaps pure thoughts so wise...
Whatever precious pens outpour
From all each poet shared,
At least we'll know for evermore,
Somebody, somewhere, cared...

Poem of the Day

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
