A State Of Mind - Poem by Ali Adamson

Poetry is a way
To see
And listen
To think and say..

I feel
I am shedding
These wings
Or leaving
This cage

    Poetry sets imagination free from its cage and the poet takes on wings to a limitless world where he is able to see and perceive umpteen things and turn his experiences into beautiful verse...! Lovely write! (Report) Reply

    A wonderful succinct piece. Poetry means a lot to the poet. Yes, it is very cathartic n liberating as your piece suggests. (Report) Reply

    Verily, poetry is the biography of a poet,
    What he sees, listens, thinks, does and says
