The Greats Toil For Their Poems - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

(poetry in progress)
slyvia looks for words to fit into her imagination
and calling of her art as inspiration carries her in
a carriage to her shangrila, poetic land

in the thesaurus she finds her compass to her destiny
she plucks the ears of her pedigree horses
so sure that they would gallop her to her promised land
of charms, away from the tempest of torments
enveloping her

so artful, so apt, her work is rescued by her
toil, an armada of gold blown asunder
only to be steered to the right path
and harbour a lady fated for her art
