A Poet's Heart - Poem by Khairul Ahsan


A poet's wandering heart is precious
Only to a few eager souls, who hear
Their heart's songs echoed in his words.
That's why to them, the poet is so dear.

A poet's heart cannot be possessed
By a single soul mate entwined or not,
For a poet's heart is free to wander,
From heaven to earth without a thought.

Poets enjoy a unique friendship
And fraternity at home and abroad,
Their words can cheer wistful minds
And bind by friendship's invisible cord.

    Truely and wisely penned down.
    But i wonder could this rational tone bring a reader nearer to your poet's heart?
    I liked the wisdom, thanks for sharing.

    Subconscious thoughts....a poet's heart speaks! You can hear their heart songs through words, you can see them without physically seeing them. A poet's heart is the true person inside! (Report) Reply

    Blandishments! It defines every member of this web. Not only members but every poets and writers around the world! This keeps the people with paper and ink to bind together and this are all our similarities that only us can understand and the inexpressive ones cannot. I hope our nature will be preserved and we can still be able to pass this onto the next generation. (Report) Reply
