Ode to a Poet

Spread the love

mq_wallpaper

Though thousands of miles apart; yet the writings
reflect the most earnest of souls. Thus sun awakes
just in time to welcome his ambition and his goals.
Lo! thus fingers of this hand wherewith I write; to
honor with pride lone into the new world’s sight.”

Hence glittering into night a million stars, moving
perhaps to shape his thoughts. And so as the quill
quickens upon the parchment, there shines a light
as though crescent beaming bright. Words in turn
speak tongues so clear, so as to satiate the soul, its 
ethereal light.

At last when someone spoke his name;
Thus portrait beamed inside its frame.

    Oh my. I especially LOVE the second stanza. So well written. I’m really enjoying reading the poems from this prompt…I was leary at first but they are turning out so wonderfully! I appreciate each for its own value…not “knowing” the dVerse folks that well since I’ve just moseyed up to the bar in December. This is just an excellent portrait! Love the illustration as well.

  4. This is such a great poem. I really like how it talks about someone so far away, but, because of the words, this person feels so close. That’s what’s great about a poetic community!
