A Garden of Verse #poetry


fern

 

I thumb through the archives

unfold fiddleback of verse

and the more anticipation

 the more memories I traverse

that poem written with a tear

that one in-between a kiss

hold each  discarded petal

not wanting the meaning to miss

I live between the stanzas

in a garden you can’t see

connect the dots together

the poetry is me

 

 

This is a funny/ reflective poem for the Poetry Pantry at Poets United. As I went through archived work and drafted private (for submission only) work I realized how rich we are to be able to embrace life in words. To each poet thank you for this is a life we share in the garden of verse.

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing with an E. African team that is developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.

  3. I agree that perhaps these lines are true for many poets….we who live between the lines. Smiles. I always think that if one reads a person’s poetry enough one does indeed ‘connect the dots’ and know the poet well! I enjoyed the way you expressed this idea, Leslie.
