    The Poet

    The Poet, as master of creation, sculpts the words from ideation,
    a poetic human lens under Sun
    who must concentrate its rays and in bold exquisite ways
    tug the Heart and pluck its strings, one by one.

    In a foxhole, words of Courage, out in Space, words of Hope,
    on a deathbed, poet's words to feel alive
    are the jewels within a chest from the heart and head and breast
    of a poet's driven quest to pen the scribe.

    Even when 'no inspiration' is the poet's root frustration
    and no wind to make a flag of words unfurl,
    Time will tilt the lens to daylight
    bending rays of words to clear sight
    and then blow the poet's scribe across the world.

    So embrace the Poet's mission as you write with proud submission
    to this self imposed commission that occurs.
    So that when you speak of Beauty, Love and Death,Truth and Duty,
    you'll make Shakespeare smile with tears and lose his words.

    through a poet eyes
    you will feel the dance
    no the love of romance
    understand the struggle
    you become apart of it all
    the mark of our time
    thank you for this inspirational drop poet :)
    Peace~N~Love

    This was wonderful, such a descriptively majestic way to pen being a poet.
