A Poem by Mr.e

A little thing can grow into something big...


The seeded spirit

planted in the soiled heart

the blood soaked germination

tearing through the larynx

what?...in the head

(eye sight)

branching fingertips reach for the window


tapped in

the words to be

grow into a poet-tree

Thanks again Norah, you are too kind. :)
Yes, I like this poem. I like the analogy of the seed and the body. The seeded spirit is an attractive idea. And the rhyming couplet at the end is clever.

Thanks for reading Annette!
i particularly relate to this...i used to live in a very old house and outside my window was this beautiful old tree...i used to sit at my typewriter---and tap out poems as i looked at that "poet tree"
and what i wrote grew into poems.
thanks for this one.
