Judgement Poems: 60 / 500

The Poem

Rating: 5.0

On the anvil of wording you forge the poem.
And as the smith delivers the pickax
only deftly wrought to dig the soil
you don't cease chiseling it
except ready for Judgement's hand.

Someone oneday
will use it as a tool
to dig within himself
to find the spark
that lit its flame.

one of the toughest things to accomplish is a readable poem about poems. You did it. I love the way you found to make the words sizzle: Someone oneday will use it as a tool to dig within himself to find the spark Thanks! -Rich

Excellent work. Somewhere someone will relate to a poet's feelings, will feel the pain n pleasure the poet felt while writing. That's the beauty of writing. A writer is never alone in his feelings, there are many whose heart beats with a similar rhythm.
