The Heart Of A Poet - Poem by Ron Poetry
THE HEART OF A POET..
To look at the ocean, and envision a universe, To compare a flower to a lovely woman, Putting in words a metaphorical flight... Expressing happiness would make all a poet...
But it takes a poet to express pain, To look at hurt in a different light.. To search for joy in a sea of sorrow, A lonely plant in a dead battlefield...
The ability to look at a sunset, And see fire; the moon cold and distant. But to see the essence of love In the flame of a dying candle,
It takes the heart of a poet To find peace in sorrow, joy in pain, music in silence, sight in darkness, The cosmos in an insignificant grain of sand...
Soft and mellow, filled with compassion, Yet tough enough to traverse through fire, It takes the heart of a poet to take the burns And turn them into joyous tears.
It takes the heart of a poet to empower words to move stone to turn tears of happiness and love simply by caressing them...
To understand love, to spread love, To reduce the ache of a throbbing wound, All it takes is a few short words flowing from the heart of a Poet.. This wordsmith Poet..
