In A World Of Poetry

Rating: 5.0


Loved to write as far back as memory goes
Without any thought for a verse to compose

Poetic expressions of innate creativity
So admire the effect and it's sensitivity

Words dive straight to heart like an arrow
Flying through sky piercing at point narrow

Each word so concise of fit and precise
Like a pearl sliding on a stringing device

Tucked in heart the mysterious emotions
Blossoming in the beauty of linguistic notions

Somewhere along the line few thoughts
Started to sprout upon the surface of mind

Needing words for quick expression
Before sinking fast in deep regression

As I attempted to catch those fireflies
Free form for novice was an easy choice

Reading and writing like twin sisters juxtapose
Wandering together in thicket of versification

For a long time my notebook was
A private garden for me to venture

Eventually it was shared by likewise minds
Enjoyed and scrutinized from expert eyes

Now I realize the constraint of writing
With proper rhythm, meter and rhyme

Framing a single thought in mot-juste
For a poetic flow sonorous and dulcet.

Choosing a sonnet or sestina for rhetoric
Lyric, limerick or verse is a tough query

Inventing a metaphor or picking from mythology
To keep secret and covert pain's methodology

Poetry! You intrigue me with your curves and contour
Like a gypsy beauty yodeling with her songs and lore

There lies a world of subtle revelation and intuition
To call upon muses and follow the inspiration.

When a poet dwells in the poetic world s/he cuts himself/ herself from the outside world of chios and confusion.
