Poetry And Me In 55 Words


image credit: Jingle



Poetry and me
Sound like my hubby and me:
Via poetry,
I see reality, fantasy, and geometry...
When it's with me,
I feel connected and happy;
When it deserts me, temporarily,
I feel lost and empty.
Poetry and me,
are both independent and inseparable,
Poetry fills my life with energy,
Random derivation? Let it Be!

Selina Kingston said...

Totally get what you're saying. The way you feel about poetry is the way I feel about singing

Tarang Sinha said...

Very nice!Keep flowing in the stream of poetry.

Ellen aka Ella said...

Wonderful, the separation, I too feel this way. Lately, I am finding writing poems, to be harder. I know why, I usually like to be alone, when I gather random bits of ideas and words. My daughter is off from school. The words are harder to sift through~ Thanks for sharing, I so get the way you feel!

Jingle Belle....
Words always roll out of your head often and haphazardly!
You never seem to lose a thing!!
Excellent 55
Keep travelling on your journey.
Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End...G

Any muse is a fly-by-night - that's why night is the best time to catch them. Very enjoyable poem.

Yvonne Osborne said...

Good poem.

When the writing is good, the day is good. When the writing is bad, the day just plain sucks!

That you've said in a nicer way.

How could you limit it to only 55 words? lol I think the poetry *does* become an integral part of those who write...and I completely understand about how it feels when the muse seems to be gone! Well said.

exitsbyalice said...

awesome, glad to know i'm not the only one the poetry leaves...yeah, it feels like being abandoned!

Missy said...

Poetry is so much like a marriage. The words complete the poet and the poet completes the words.

Very nicely said and a 55'er toboot.

JamieDedes said...

"Let it be" ... wonderful. I like the poem and these illustrations are particularly attractive. Altogether lovely post, Ji. Thank you.

Emmanuel Ibok said...
