A poetry moment

A poetry moment

A Poem by Fran Marie

it lasts for only a while
sometimes bringing 
a reason for lips
to form a smile

then there are hard lines;
harsh words which make 
your eyes cry
maybe not understanding why

 darkness comes calling
carrying a dreadful death tone 
and there you stand 
with heart in hand
feeling the intense 
deep depth of a poem

it's a poetic moment 
to make readers think
to address it and press it
to write your soul down
in poetry's heartfelt ink

Great poem. I love your turns of phrase. I especially loved this turn of phrase:
"to write your soul down
in poetry's heartfelt ink"

Truly, poets write their souls in ink, to inscribe their poems on every soul who reads them.

I love your title & your poem supports your snappy main idea mightily! From my perch, your way of describing a poetic moment seems to be mostly in terms of emotion . . . like when we're feeling it strongly, that's the poetic moment we need to capture & convey the intensity. For me, most poetic moments are fleeting funny tweaks & bizarre ways of looking at life. There are millions of poets capturing the poetic moments braced by emotions, as you describe, so I try to capture oddball moments that hardly any other poets do! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

The inspiration may be fleeting. Always worth having paper and pen handy. So easy to lose the moment. My muse is most active at night while everyone else sleeps, so I have pen and paper on the bedside table. Thank you for sharing your experiences Fran Marie. All good wishes.

always appreciated;
You're right; sometimes inspiration is there for a fleeting moment and then it's gone. By all means, drop everything you can and pay attention when it occurs.

those moments come at a time of their own choosing...and if we try to force them, we end up with blank paper...but if we just allow them the freedom to come when they want to, they will...
and we will benefit greatly from the words, with the words and find poems under our tree.
