a 'Universalist' !
PLEASE consider accepting what may likely be my very last 'challenge'....
to pen a 'write' (in any 'poetic form' of your choice) as to what a "Poet"/"Poetess"
is and/or does; etc.??!!
my most humble entry was as follows:
Thus is a “Poet”....
....remaining blessed or cursed
with a grand-fine heart
of magnificent fragility,
far too easily lost
to rain or tears....
....remaining love’s stranger
just beyond the horizon
as a spectral silhouette
fading in a broken dream....
....remaining hopelessly incredulous
as to why men are folding up
for hanging in corporate halls
to Nature’s inestimable chagrin....
....remaining an unanchored spirit
lost and forever adrift,
(in the depths of words unwritten)
where comets weep, and galaxies dance
over ruined mountains by starlight,
to the music and mystery
of "Deep-Time's" eternal schemes....
....a “Poet” is thus!
PLEASE POST YOUR 'CHALLENGE RESPONSE' IN
(OPEN) POETRY FORUM # 40 AND PROVIDE A LINK
TO IT IN THIS 'POETRY CHALLENGE' FORUM!
Enjoy! [I know I will dearly LOVE reading
your 'challenge responses'!]
