It's a medium A written window To the soul? Or a jumble of words A fantasy of authorship A cry for fame For the delusional The failed writer Poetry - it's like sarcasm... An escape for those of feeble mind Perhaps 'the lowest form of wit' Or just maybe it's words from beyond A spiritual tour of the subconscious An open doorway to what lies beneath A chance to overtly express An opportunity to speak outside of the norm Poetry demands patience From the writer From the reader... A poem isn't the product of a day There is a lifetime Written in a few sentences The poem asks us to answer a question Of ourselves... Who can fathom that lifetime Within those few short words And even fewer minutes..? Read and try to follow That which is unfathomable...

A brilliant poem, Martin, I love it!!
This part in particular..
“A poem isn’t the product of a day
There is a lifetime
Written in a few sentences”
Thank you – I think you will understand how much your comment means to me – thank you again 🙂
Very well said, Martin, in beautiful terms. Your poetry has been very meaningful and I’ve appreciated your dedication. I love poetry; less is always more, in my estimation.
Thanks Debra 🙂 I knew I wouldn’t be able to find words every day for the month so easing back and just writing when the words come is probably best.
I also enjoyed this, Martin. Thank you.
Thank you Philip 🙂
