Saluting the poetic words....an experiment...

words

stir souls,

awakening heart,

striking mind as flaming darts,

assuring us dreaming never dies.


pen

progresses,

lustrously so,

with expressions

free spirited on paper,


music

playing

rhythmatically

lyrics on the back

jumping within my thoughts


world

born anew,

vision of poets'

sparkle in hands,

imaginings ascending to sky.


Poetry-

salute it as

the sun in the night,

fetching with it only light;

illuminating the lane it walks.

..........................................................................................................................

Consider this as a poetry thurday prompt.

In turn, I trippingly wander this lane, pausing only to fetchingly salute this poeme and Poetess.

Coyly,
Percy

I love how you set this one up! When I was reading it, the rhythm was strong, since my head moved back and forth. Nice!

I loved this poem. I am taking my time to get around Poetry Thursday's entries this week but thanks for visiting me. My favorite stanza was the last one.

I love this. Words cascade, falling, hitting the page, my favorite way of writing.

GeL (Emerald Eyes) said...

I love the phrases and the visual effect you use. I sometimes use a cascading effect in my poetry, too.
Like this phrase "Vison of poets' sparkle in hands, imaginings asccending to the sky."

(I didn't participate in Poetry Thurs. this past week, but I have for other times. Plese check out my archives, by clicking on the Poetry Thursday category on the right sidebar of my blog.)
