The Poet

"

It's not blood that flows in a poet's veins. It's ink!

"
The Poet

The Poet, as master of creation, sculpts with words from ideation.
A poetic human Lens under Sun
who must concentrate its rays and in bold exquisite ways
tug the Heart and pluck its strings, one by one.

In a foxhole, words of Courage; out in Space, words of Hope,
on a deathbed, poet’s words to feel alive
are the jewels within a chest from the heart and head and breast
of a poet’s driven quest to pen the scribe.

And even when ‘no inspiration’ is the poet’s root frustration
and no wind to make a flag of words unfurl,
Time will tilt the Lens to daylight
bending words to pinpoint insight
and one breath will hurl that scribe across the world.

So embrace the poet’s mission, as you write with proud submission
to this self imposed commission that occurs.
So that when you speak of Beauty, Love and Death, Truth and Duty,
you’ll make Shakespeare smile with tears and lose his words.

This is spectacular tapestry of spoken and written words that touch the heart, mind and soul. And leave you speechless and in awe. An almighty poem in general.

this is so true and so beautiful Namyh, I love how you say things, the tag at the top that ink flows in the veins of writers is a wonderful thought, that I know I have thought before, nice work.
