It Is Time To Write Another Kind Of Poetry

IS TIME TO WRITE ANOTHER KIND OF POETRY

It is time to write another kind of poetry-
To leave behind the self-reflection
The poems on the poet the poem and the poetry -

It is time to rediscover that the world is rich in unsaid dreams
And the poet must see too the beauty of what has been unsaid before
And what has been said many times before -

It is time to write another kind of poetry
And to leave myself as poet subject behind-

I have not yet done this here
But tomorrow and the next day perhaps
There will be other worlds.

    Such a lovely poem! I admire the rhythm and the concept of writing poetry that is not about oneself. I also appreciate the admission, which I can easily echo, that you have not yet written this other kind of poetry. Well done my friend.

    perhaps only when we live in the hearts and dreams of all peoples, past, present, and future, will the true poetry write us! great poem!
