Poetry in Motion

A Poem by Fran Marie




   The man, woman, poets as beings, connected to the force

the alliance, melding muses of light and darkness,like a sword

strike forth with the mighty pen of midnight ink

Stained pages of powerful poetry lay bare for hungry eyes to

devour each line~not useless words that are merely uttered in

somber whispers,then forgotten

No,this is the art of poetic verse penned upon fine parchment

filled with passion, deeply expressed to impart and imprint 'pon

mind and soul, should others read and behold its mystical notes

and consume the artistic value of its magic,as coherence affirms

and defines poetry's validity

Fly on the wings of pegasus~lighting the moon

Releasing the stars

Burning words, scorching the depths of hell's raging inferno!

Cascading words, cooling the zenith of heaven's meadows!

Achieve the power of distinguishing your emotions, take up

your pen and put poetry in motion~sharpen your mighty sword

and share the adventure with the honor of a poet in quest of

beauty and grace of the written word


            'Lest it ceases to be

                    and the soul doth wither

                                    for lack thereof~

Beautiful!! And the graphic.... stunning!

Wow, Fran -- your talent shines very brightly in this piece --
I believe this is my favorite of yours so far ....

"Stained pages of powerful poetry lay bare for hungry eyes to
devour each line~not useless words that are merely uttered in
somber whispers, then forgotten"

Poems leaving a permanent mark on the minds and souls of others --
so write from the depth of the soul -- with purpose --

I was especially taken with the last lines..

~'Lest it ceases to be

and the soul doth wither

for lack thereof~

Such piercing truth lies therein.
Outstanding work Fran! Good luck in the contest! :)

The words in this poem are well... how can I describe it... Well, I actually can't in one word. Oh, wait for it. Breathless. This poem leaves me with goosebumps all over, stripping me all until I'm vulnerable to the message of this poem.

NO, poetry will not die. It will always be with us. There will always be poets who pick up pen to express deep emotion. Your prose is well written and so very emotive, Fran Marie. Loved the reference to Pegasus! Lydi**
