Metaphorically Speaking

Metaphorically Speaking

A Poem by Kelly Scheppers

...a part of who I am



Metaphorically Speaking

 

 

I am a poet.

Metaphorically speaking ,

I bleed muted words

 

and drink the moon.

Kelly, first I apologize for such a late review. I read this one shortly after you posted it and thought I’d left a review.

Yes, you are a poet! And, in these few words capture the magic of poetry, the silent pain we bleed onto pages, redeemed later with the moon’s distant influence. A literal success, I say.

Great play on that wonderful word metaphor...and an appreciation that our lives goes into our writing, at the same time as absorb the world beyond us... Shakespeare aptly put ' in the same bracket 'the poet, the lunatic (moon influenced) and the lover.'

Oh yes, and less is more. Well done!

I gravitate to being a "lesser" poet. Love the Shakespearean quote - thank you, Jibey!
K,

Thank you, Tom...I appreciate that!
'It's raining cats and dogs,' "she has a heart of gold," Every day metaphors, used by non poets by the million, but as R E Ray says, only a poet can truly capture the magic held in a pen.

...and he is a very wise man, whom I admire. Always a pleasure having you on my pages, Beccy!
I love the way "metaphorically speaking" aptly refers to all of our hopeful aspirations of trying to be truly poetical . . . and at the same time, this phrase also refers to how a poet job is to speak metaphorically. Those kinds of carefully-crafted multiple-meaning phrases are like gold! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Indeed a poet. You summed it all up marvelously with a touch of romance. Thank you for sharing Kelly.

You are welcome dear poet.
any comment at this point would only be an echo of what others have already rightfully said.... I haven't yet drank the moon, but I do a lot of waving and howling at it.... oh and Kelly, please be careful, those metaphors are very sharp... ;0)

Wasn't it Christopher Cross who sang about the moon and New York City? I think you still have time .. read more
And like you, I drink the moon, but the next day I don't feel so well. If you need anyone to metaphorically bandage you wounds, let me know; poets should do that for each other, there superstar!! Good work. I say work as in people who enjoy their work. Have a good one.

"MUTED WORDS" indeed . . . however they ring loud and clear to thirsty hearts needing purpose.
