National Poetry Day

Updated: May 26, 2019

A reflection in honour of National Poetry Day.



THE POETRY DANCE

POETRY,

The contemplation

of the matter of the mind, chews on.

An inward noise exploding but unseen.

Like floating

stars mark trails of heaven,

big words, right words, hard words are spoken;

torn from a restless mind that wanders free.

New words are born, called poetry.

The pen sits in a hand that wants to write

and ears are sharpened to a cutting edge.

The meditating heart

just sits and waits

for flowing words to fall onto the paper white

that like a catcher's mitt

absorbs the steady flow of inner thoughts.

The ebb and tide of speech pounds on.

It falls by pen, inspired by life and makes marks

fit together.
