Be The Poet

Be The Poet

A Poem by Michael X
"

 

"
These words aren't just simple letters,
these words are a mysterious force
because poetry has a greater meaning.

In the body temple, it's the quiet place
where faithful poets devote their souls 
to unseen, telepathic, astral body muses.

It isn't the rushing of the moment 
but it's the calming of time, patience 
and slowing down, it is self reflection.

It's the quiet place. It's meditation.
Breath by breath. The moment writes
itself and you are the poem of life.

And when I write poetry, it feels like
the dream has come to life and
the dream is living through me.

"because poetry has a greater meaning." Indeed poetry is an art and art portray truth to me. Therefore, the poet is an artist and poetry is an indication of truth.

"to unseen, telepathic, astral body muses" The body holds the senses, thoughts, idea, and imaginings.

This stanza is my favorite, "It isn't the rushing of the moment" because poetry is a lot like a camera. You try to capture a moment, a feeling, an idea, a thought into a frame with words that does take slowing down time and self reflection.

Another one of my favorite lines, "The moment writes itself and you are the poem of life" because it's action to me in which portrays how moments come to life in poetry. I loved the follow up with the dream, though not as much as the previous lines I have to admit.

This poem reminds me of how much I love poetry and writing it. I feel a lot of the things in this poem. I also loved how it wasn't too simple, but not too complex.

Good write.

Thanks for posting! Have a great day!

Agreed. I never know what I will write. You summed it up. Last stanza says it all.

Hi and thank you for stoppintg by, I appreciate the kind words!
I really admire how you made us see into the mind of a writer. And yes, the act of writing is truly about self-reflection & how much you come to understand yourself as a whole. We require quiet time in order to have our moments to escape and release our emotions. I hate keeping them bottled up...but love what one is able to create from simply moving a pen...and the inspiring thought that every writer has different stories to tell. I really fell in love with this piece...I'm sure it speaks true to every writer around!

ha ha, thanks Gullia! I appreciate the read and great comment!
I love to read how others write, their methodologies and their motives. The glimpses behind the curtains.
A commonality for us all is a wish to be heard. Whether we be a raging torrent, a babbling brook, a gushing geyser or rambling rivulet - we all contribute to the river that we also drink from - the river of Life.
Keep on keeping on Michael
