A Poem Born - Poem by Sandra Feldman

A feeling deep,
That slowly creeps,
Instead of chocking,
Words run deep,
A flight of birds,
From head to heart,
A trembling motion,
Gives the start.

A poem born just like a child,
Whose love is now a faithful guide,
Direct emotion, cannot hide,
The happiness, now by your side.
A poem born, that's part of you,
Like from the tree, the fruit is too.

    This is how I feel after writing... Just like a child/whose love is now a faithful guide. Imagery, metaphor, simile... Well used to evoke the poetic process. This is is great poem. (Report) Reply

    A FLIGHT OF BIRDS FROM HEAD TO HEART is a stunning metaphor for the poetic process - it's organic, magical, biological, comprehensive. But the prevailing metaphor associates the birth of a poem with the birth of a child and that brings in the theme of ULTIMATE VALUE. I am completely enveloped by this poem, from this night to the end of my career as a poet, this is my guiding metaphor: A POEM BORN, THAT'S PART OF YOU,
    LIKE FROM THE TREE, THE FRUIT IS TOO.
