Anatomy Of A Poet Poem by Cj Heck

Anatomy Of A Poet

Rating: 4.9


Go in through the eyes of a poet
deep into her alphabet mind.
Ideas like flotsam and jetsam
dodge poetry fragments and lines.

Beware the dark shadows of memory,
knife-sharp and bloodied by time,
or gentle, orgasmic and sensual,
swirling eddies, some without rhyme.

Softly notice the spirit in hiding.
Tiptoe past the bruised heart mending there,
knitting poems, pearls strung on a necklace,
unfinished jewels everywhere.

Take note on your tour of this poet
the outside no different you see,
but inside, my God, a passionate abyss,
the poet, the woman, the me.

Somehow this felt like a journey through my own soul. Beautiful image of jewels not yet strung together.

Like a rock pool gently lapped by a calm sea, this poem has depths and hidden treasures which lie beneath its surface. Very much like the writer, I suspect! No wonder so many people have read and voted on it, CJ. Love, Fran xx
