|"So What Is A Poet?"
Words creatively thrown...
tossed passionately,with emotional banterings,
around the room
through the kaliedescopic moods
inside his creative mind
Skillful plays on cutesy little rhymes as he finds the memorys the poet adds like music to illustrate a certain mood ...
a special feeling; a certain place and time...
Too many stanzas or crowded phrases
merely cluttering what he really wants to say
a careful bonsai-ing of the overlay, leaves a brief but easier story for him to colorfully portray
The hand of a poet...
verbal insights carefully written, paints an image just as an artist's finely oiled brush....his pen nestled; lightly caressed in the fingers of his
masterful, but loving hand.
