Interpretation - Poem by Theresa Ann Moore

Written words have importance.
The flow can sooth and entrance.
It can ridicule and cruelly pierce.
The tongue can be blazing fierce.

Each writer may have a different goal.
Expressing joy or pain from the soul.
Intentions pour from a transfusing pen
Describing what, why, where, and when.

The reasoning behind the printed line
Leads from the obscure to acutely fine.
Often the analysis is not in plain sight.
The mind of a reader provides the light.

    And sometimes they get the point and sometimes they don't...but they still walk away with something and that's what makes it great (Report) Reply

    I think most of your rhymes are original, that is, you're really saying something, not just composing a line to fill out a contrived rhyme. The poem is a little didactic, for me, but it shows a creative, expressive, rather subtle mind at work (yours, of course) . (Report) Reply
