the POET

the POET

A Poem by Roth Jordain



the POET


He sits upon the lap of nature

Drawing inspiration there to write,

A sower of seeds within his heart

He pens in silence of the night.


He's a tree watered by beauty

Bearing fruit the hungry heart yearns,

A link between this and the coming world

An inextinguishable lamp that burns.


He's a white cloud on the horizon

Growing to fill the face of the sky,

Falling on the flow in the field of life

A heart that will never die.


He's a spring where the thirsty may drink

A slave to our want and our need,

His pen is his might, his soul the ink,

His works the fruit of his seed.

The message presenting the poet as some kind of mystic, whose words can neither be stemmed nor denied, is a good one, I think. "He's a tree watered by beauty" - I like that. We may not all be great poets, but we all have something to say, and hopefully, someone willing to read our words. I enjoyed this poem very much.

Hi Relic,

that's all good but, the poet has more facets
poetry is the recording of life of fantasy
of that 4 letter word, of hate, of anger
poetry is the political tool that brings emotions and results
it is the original manner of recordings, the ledger, the diaries of life
it is the songs you sing
yes, poetry is what you describe but all is not good in the world of man
you have composed a well written iota of a very broad subject matter

I see You are making your presence here at the cafe strongly :>

Remarkable piece my friend, though the theme is not something new but what is amazing about your poem here is the chosen metaphors, Nature that is always the source, a tree that is grounded, a cloud that is free and dreamy, and spring that is aboundent and fruitful. I like the way You capitalized "POET", it shows that he is the only Master and shows your wonderful poetical taste.

Best Wishes*

I think sometimes we wish our heart would die. Might make the words we write less painful.

An exalted picture of a poet here. When I get down on my efforts, I'll refer back to this one. I'm sure it will counterbalance writer's block.

First let me say, welcome to Writerscafe:) My name is Patricia and most just Type a “P” for me.

Second, well done poem, great content, writing through nature is always a hit with me. This has nice flow, rhythm and rhyme which is always a pleasure to read, I do love classical writings. Really nice descriptive lines in this as well :)
Third, forgive my mistakes if I made any, I do reviews on my phone, easier to see but harder to type.

Another wonderful read, Roth! I am so glad you are here in the Cafe! Your talent should be shared! Great inspiration and homage to poets. I believe most of us write from the heart….from what we see and feel. Thank you for sharing.
