For the Love of Poetry

For the Love of Poetry

A Poem by Judy

 

Poetry is my best friend

allowing me to be

who I really am, navigating

the turbulent seas with me

and still keeping me afloat.

   

It lets me venture the unknown,

into a kaleidoscope  turning,

rotating, revolving from broken blue triangles, 

to sunny yellow stars - the kaleidoscope captures

the spectrum of my emotions 

from black to white,

and all the yellows, oranges, purples and reds in between.    

 

It does not judge me,

suggesting I follow a certain path,

but rather shows me alternate conduits

for me to choose from.    

 

The absolute decision is my own,

whether to succeed or to fail.

But the more I persevere,

the further I get in my journey towards excellence.

   

Poetry permits me to travel to far reaching locales,

without ascending an airplane. Like a time warp,

I can be transcended to exotic locations,

places I could only imagine  venturing to,

yet with the touch of a pen and dictionary,

I can conjure up  anew

Poetry is a writer's way of discovering self and the magic or logic of imagination. Fine words from you, certainly at the start of your journey.

Poetry has allowed me to see inside myself. Those twistings and turnings have always been so dark before. I really like this piece, Judy. I love the conjuring, too. Nice. Angi~

Thanks for your reviews!
Yes...indeed...

Judy, this touched me and will many, a Poet's world becomes like a diary for them, all the moments that flourish and fall within and alongside us, all noted and given a breath of life...

So beautifully written x

Poetry has become my saving grace
Rita said it best and I could do no better. Ascending, descending, and transcending.

Poetry is a comforting friend, indeed. This is an excellent "ode in prose", extolling the joys of verse!
