Found By Words #poetry

rushing water

Like a waterfall

on a hidden retreat

or the gravel that crunches

beneath weary feet

poetry jangles the soul

like a brass bell

that has been pulled

never tires of the toll

there are times

 my words wont work together

a spirit all their own

seems to collude and gather

making me…

younger, stronger

greener, wiser

“Poetry is an echo asking a shadow to dance.”

“Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.”

Robert Frost
