Poetry anyone?

Posted by jbanjoist on Saturday, April 4, 2015

I delved into poetry some years ago and enjoyed it. Recently having begun writing, and starting a fiction novel, I feel the urge to try poetry again.

This is much influenced by my book.


  Hope's Recital


the words they dance

sometimes a foxtrot

sometimes a waltz

and attempt a ballet on occasion

the river flows

the moon illuminates

the tree shades each

tender kiss

the sun

creates ashes from the remains

and hope

if it is allowed

manages the sun and the stars

in our heavens

it breathes life

and raises from the dead

those precious

those dear

those loved

and tames the wicked sun

into a dream

into a song

by which we all

may dance

Thanks! I will. It seems to have gotten to the point of my not having a choice in the matter any more. lol

You might have seen this, and might not.
I certainly enjoyed writing it and many liked it, which was amazing to me.
