Moment's Mind In Ink - Poem by Kelly Kurt

Write your poem down
From where did it originate
If you would have written it last year
Would it have been the same
Or written at all
Love, pain, beauty; any subject
A reflection of your present state
Fluid, conscious, subconscious

    What a realistic thought, nature changes according to our moods and a poem written in a mood long ago looks stranger to us in our present mood that is entirely different. Life created by Him in an specific mood looks entirely different from what it was and from what it has been. No surprise, we all see nature regularly changing her mood.
    Difficult to decide whether nature changes the mood or the mood changes the nature.

    It is reciprocal I think. Nature can change your mood, and that changes your overall look on nature.

    I like this one very much.
    It was RW Emerson who said: Man is only half himself and the other half is his expression.
    I struggled a bit to understand Emerson's statement, but now I think I can grasp it a bit.
    Perhaps the most wonderful way to express our most inner feelings and thoughts is through poetry.
    So true, what you say in this poem. It is a reflection of the moment.
    Superb poem.10++++++

    The moment's mind is a fleeting thing! Our poems come from within varied layers of our subconscious mind. Well put Kelly! Thanks! (Report) Reply

    I encourage everyone to write. It is a form of introspection and even healing. To see one's own thoughts in writing is enlightening and even cathartic.

    Our poems are indeed just a reflection of our mental state. Thanks for sharing Kelly. (Report) Reply

    I can go back and read various poems I have written and recall what I was thinking, how I felt and what was going on in my life at the time they were written
