Still Poetry

Still Poetry

A Poem by rhythm&blues



I have come to love poetry
 even through trials and tribulations
it is the call of the wild in the air
whether feast, famine or love and turmoil
 it still moves to the emotions that drive us all

i think you meant "to the emotions that drive us all" ?

i really like this piece, especially where you say "it is the call of the wild in the air"

just like the dog in Jack London's "call of the wild"

poetry can't really be tamed..it moves and drives us, we do not move and drive it..

and it certainly presents trials and tribulations...it can confound us even as we try to bring it to some kind of order, so that we can understand it and ourselves.

Poetry can often help us see things that were unnoticeable before. It's certainly intriguing to read it and get something out of it.

Your words are wise, poetry moves us, cajoles us, soothes us and riles us. It is the epitome of expression and sometimes it is cathartic. Nicely done.

Very cool my friend. Indeed, there are many trials and tribulations associated with this fine art, but when the dust settles, the sun always shines through. Very nice.

Thanks Kristin, always good to see you on my page.
You explain poetry just as it is - pure art. I love this short piece and the format as well. Your words flow naturally and this is emotional - just how I like poetry to read.

Thank you Leslie, always good to hear your thoughts.
Poetry is "the call of the wild in the air..." Non-poets might not believe this, but it is so true.
It moves us, and we in turn share what it wants us to say...

Very nice, R&B!
