The joy of poetry

Spread the love

Woman writing love letter with ink

A feeling of joy like drops of rain;
Though night is gone – the stars remain.
When words flow through like river stream;
Give voice to fulfilling hopes and dreams.
Words more precious than pots of gold;
Quite a vision for one to behold.
Feel emotions rise from beneath their fold.
The power has consumed its subjects fully;
The joy of breathing – writing poetry.

Our world is one big global community;
Together we embrace this opportunity.
Raise our pen – share thoughts and views;
No matter which path we tend to choose.
In life each heart adds up to the story;
The joy of breathing – writing poetry.

  1. It is like breathing . A taking in and breathing back out. I do love the feeling too when it flows and you seem to barely have any control of it.

    1. Hello Sumana,

      Thank you so much, so glad you liked it 😀
      Highly appreciated, lots of love 😀
      xoxo

      PS: Thank you.. I m so excited 😀

  2. Breathtakingly beautiful piece….. Oh, that feeling of joy – writing poetry…is universal, Sanaa. Great job….

    xoxo

  3. Our world is one big global community;

    Raise our pen – share thoughts and views……. I love that part and feel it, too.

  4. Poetry and breathing indeed go hand in hand. Breathing out, breathing in. Writing. They go SO well together. Really a very nice poem, Sanaa.

  5. In life each heart adds up to the story;
    The joy of breathing – writing poetry.

    Rightly so Sanaa! There cannot be any one better to hold our attention and wonder!

  6. what a wonderful thought – a beautiful expression of your vision- is needed to be recognised universally. Well done, Sanaa. Nasreen

  7. You certainly make it sound easy, Sanaa. Although some poems gush out of poets like water being poured out of the jug, others generate great birthing pains and the joy of creation is often clothed in raiments of great suffering…

  8. Wonderful to see this again, Sanaa. It is obvious that you find SO much joy in writing poetry! Thanks for sharing here at Open Link as well.

  9. Posting early you have poked a lovely stick into that joy that hopefully many of us experience. I love the tribute to give to our international group of poetic dog poets running in the dVerse pack.

  10. I think it was Tom Stoppard who said, and I’m quoting liberally here, that words are sacred. If you get the right words, in the right order you can nudge the world a little. Your words have done just that, the joy of it resounds and it is a most moving thing.
