A Solitary Poet Poem by Uriah Hamilton

A Solitary Poet

Rating: 4.7

A lone flower peaks
Out over the city
From a tenement roof.
She is speechless
In her small pot
In the immense void
Of cold concrete and steel.
A solitary poet
Brought her there
To gaze upon
As he scribbles
Mad, translucent verse
Disconnected from sterile reality,
Preserving ancient poetic breath
And breeze of idyllic
Romantic past.

I loved this Uriah.. It had depth and gave us a glimpse of that lonely poet that can get inspired from the beauty of a flower when everything else seems to be emotionless. HBH

Yes, good images. The flower in the pot, of course, will die unless it is watered, but it needs the solitude to grow. Damn, I love paradox! Good poem, Uriah! Best, Hugh

This left me kind of breathless and speechless. A fine verse starkly yet serenely conveying that image of solitude so many (and perhaps especially poets?) know so well. t x
