some soul searching...


Poetry and Poets

what is it about poetry and poets
their hearts and souls they expose
they choose to write on paper
pieces of themselves
portions of their hearts
doses of their minds
for others to see inside
opened for all the world
to view a heart, a soul, a mind
that's what poets do
its the nature of their kind.

..it is the nature of their kind! Yes! As I have written to you, poets write the lyrics to God's music. You are one of His best lyricists!

When the heart sings, should it be just to an audience of one?

What a wonderful poem on why we write!
Thank you so much for sharing with us.

Yes, you captured it well! =)

And so, others can regognize themselves and relate, or they do not recognize but hopefully empathize and get another humans angle.

That is so true, but it is also a craft. The writing alone don't make you a poet.

I stood at the station with all my luggage in my hand and just as I was about to get on the train to depart - I read your poem which touched my heart. It is one of the reasons why I decided to stay on at the bay and to tell you that your poem made my day.
