The New Mystic - Poem by Barry Middleton

The new mystic may speak of spring,
but is an unfamiliar way.

For spring is nothing more
than a coalescence of fevered stardust.

Without the bygone mystic,
spring is a warm and inarticulate breeze.

With no one to define it,
spring is just the sudden urge of a beast.

Spring is truly a sultry whisper
that only the mystic is roused to hear.

Topic(s) of this poem: mystical philosophy, spring, universe

    I try. I still become very frustrated that I often cannot make the poem be as I would want it to be. This particular one is close to what I wanted to say.
