The Puzzle Of A Poet Poem by Doris Cornago

The Puzzle Of A Poet

Rating: 4.5


I apologize for not seeing the person
Beyond the words of a poem
Who seemingly did not
Care but obviously
Did as he
Sought
To be
Understood
Playing hide
And seek in words
Obliterating the generosity
Of his wholesomeness and open hands
A man so gentle he laughs at his own image

POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
This poet notified me of his poem and curiosity made me read his recent masterpiece. At first, I was confounded by the uniqueness, but on recollection of images brought about by the poem, I began to see the truths he wanted me to know about himself and about me. Truly, a gentle soul, who will not intrude but will alight at the periphery of one's awareness until you are ready to let him in. This poem is in response to the poem 'Mirror' by Yoonoos Peerbocus. His own poem reminds me of a colorful butterfly, easily dismissed but soon remembered.

Lovely insightful poem read with Poet's Notes brings to us the power of words and their ability to enlighten people who initially choose to ignore their intrinsic message. Loved reading it. Thanks.

Yes. Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. The butterfly is not aware of its beauty. You have discerning eyes, Rajnish. Thank you. :)
