A Poet And Love Poem by Khairul Ahsan

A Poet And Love

Rating: 4.9

The Mississippi-Missouri may dry up one day,
But not a poet's heart. Streams of unrestrained
Feelings continually meander through his mind.
At some blessed moments, some blossom into
A flower like poem, some flow on quietly beneath.

Thoughts of love, or lack of it, manifests in a poet's
Literary works. If he has known love, his words are
Soft and soothing, they cool the parched hearts as
They are read by the forlorn and the lovelorn. If not,
His yearnings beat the cry of a lonely, distant dove.

So sad is sometimes, a poet's love. But it is so true, the heart is always feeling whether translated into poetry or not.. Beautifully said and felt. Yes, Feelings come and Feeling go, They enrich the heart, of that A Poet really knows. And your tremendous sensitivity, Is what your writings, Always show, Thank you for another wonderful heart beat.

The Missouri River is dear to me since I reside in Missouri. It is a grand and friendly river, providing relaxation and enjoyment for many people, And now it has contributed to a grand poem from Khairul's pen. How proud I am to be near this river that has inspired this beautiful poem!

The endless rush of water, the poet's words, sending forth ripples that drench even the most dry of souls. I loved this one...it speaks to the heart of us all. PEACE
