~Communion of Poets

A Poem by Frieda P

Walt Whitman
“I act as the tongue of you,
... tied in your mouth . . . . in mine it begins to be loosened.” 
― Walt Whitman

The spaces between us grow closer together
as your pen spills vital relevance unto the pages
wafting by in abundant grandeur
the scent is quite intoxicating
innate
lifeblood to fulfill our quill's revelry,
words that enchant and gratify to lift the spirits
hearts aglow or souls asunder
we split hairs and break bread
recompense to satisfy conscious
 yearnings
that which separates us makes us stronger
to share another moment in the life of
each and every poet who possesses the wherewithal 
to lay it on the line and communion with others
anointed in the realm of poetry we are connected
as ink scrawls across the pages into our hearts
bleeding emotions to join in our commandments of commonality
our swords pen the words that echo humanity

I feel like I have just been knighted! The best thing about writing poetry is having someone get what I am saying and relate to it. There are so many people in my non internet life (almost all of them, in fact) who say the pretty things and pat me on the head when they read something I have written. It's in the eyes, though. When their eyes glaze over, I know they don't get it. I am so happy I have this place to share and whine and joke and cry and scream and remember in. So happy. Nicely done, Frieda. Angi~

This is classic writing Frieda. I wasnt being pedantic but I googled the term for a collection of poets and found none. I would like to formally proclaim here on WC that a 'Communion of poets' is precisely the term that should be used officially. You are the spiritual tongue of a certain communion of poets IMHO.

Frieda I have not been able to comment on poems for a while due to duty requirements. I was so caught up in this poem. I love to commune with fellow writers and I enjoy the different insights we all bring to the same subjects. Those who hate on other writers without constructive reason will not understand this poem. You speak to the heart of many writers with this piece.

Our writing like any art defines us distinguishes yet unites us here I deal everyday with people who think the art forms to be unnecessary but whether we create or enjoy art its part of individuality what would life be if we were carbon copies and thee was no way to express he raw emotion that humanizes us
well written poem Frieda it started ran on and didn't stop until the point was made nice style and form well done.

Do not dear Lady bring the world of poetry into the world of false gods and religion . This is Frieda at her most eloquent!

I am glad that you enjoy the company of poets, but I wonder why the poem needs the high-flown language? Anyone feel free to debate with me on this one.
