The beautiful heart

The beautiful heart
~
I would marry every word
Betroth each metaphor
If I could paint the poem
Or pen the script
To win a beautiful heart
No more the foolish blindness
For a truth is now seen
As beautiful as ever known
The joy which births the smile
The is more to learn, understand
By openly listening to all
The company of such a heart
Brings with it warmth
To ease all worries
And all that is sought
Is but one night, one chance
To see the heart open
Willing to gift an opportunity
To the marriage of words
The betrothal of metaphors
The poetic script as it were
An ode to the beautiful heart

The Poems Became Metaphors

The poems became metaphors-
They took off like meteors,
They turned into shimmering white almond tree beauty-
They danced-
They went home
They became sick and died-
They did everything a human being and a non- human being could try to do -
They were nothing and they were everything-
They turned the sky white and blue on its darkest day
And made the nights green-
Oh they were something else the poems when they became metaphors-
And still now,
They are rising up and going deep into a different universe,
No one not even the most quiet eyes can ever fully dream-

I Don't Know Why I Should Try To Write A Poem Now

I don't know why
I should try to write
A poem now-
There will be other times
When the Metaphors
I ordinarily do not have
Flow not easily in me
Like water lava
Like blood- thinned by aspirin-

All I have to do is
Keep reading enough poetry of others
And exotic metaphors
Will come to me
As if I were another person's voice
And nothing in myself
Real as my own.

Metaphors

: Metaphors 083


Metaphoric command well worth the poets bother,
Embellishments to add beauty to the dullest line,
Transfer the meaning of one word upon another,
A ttributes to the mundane verse composed,
Poetic licence so distorted, exposed to naked view,
Hyperbolic magnification to one single theme,
Outworn cliches mixing Metaphors old or new.
Rhetoric seen to pack out each and every line
Souls protect us when smilies refuse to rhyme.
