Poem About Writing Poetry

and then again it sometimes comes on it’s own

Legends of Windemere

Yahoo Image Search Yahoo Image Search

How do you write poetry?
A curious question
With no true answer
For it depends on style
Subject
And the mind behind the words

Follow the rhythm
Either by dream or plan
To put your heart
Onto the empty white
None can forge this poem
Besides your hands and mind

Divorce sometimes it is for the best

divorced at last

It is over and done

No one has won.

But it is ending the pain

Nothing left of love.

Why hang on so tight

Nothing else to hold dear.

If the love is no longer there.

That you are one, not two

And for all you do.

That it isn’t wrong

Walk away for it is done.

For Poetry’s Sake 

Poetry is painting with words.

Neither does poetry require a topic
Or a message, it can be

Just a matter of lovely language
Just beauty on the stray and loose
It doesn’t need to suffer
For the page or owe the pen anything

Poetry is of so subtle a spirit
We might as well discuss with our soul
What to write next, it’s learned
Through decades of loving

Words and having an itch
To write when nothing else is going on
Speculative metaphysics and art?
Try poetry, and unremember your life

Create layers on top of memory
Write poems, create destiny
Out of the fictions of your mind
It’s like a spell and a sacred hearing

Learning poetry by heart is then
