Clad In Imagery - Poem by Dorett Cope

Suited in great attire
With superb shape and perfect form
When you see through
Naked emotion hidden in rhythm
It stirs the beating heart.

Dressed in sophisticated
Words sharp and bright
Clad in imagery and intelligent thoughts
Rhyming with good reasoning
Fitting tone and matching style.

When you begin to play with thoughts
Embedded in expensive fashion
There is a price to pay
Outfitted with costly devotion
They bring tears to the eyes
And questions to the seeing mind.

As you peel away layers of metaphor
They come deep down to
A single body of thought
And a vivid image emerges
That is expressive and unique.
