Heart of a Poet


Poem Commentary

This is a poem inspired by am2anangel's poem:

She asked me how I would change it.  I ended up making my own version. 

Thank you 
am2anangel for your inspiration.

Heart of a Poet

Do you believe in lilac rivers
The kind you dream at night
Ones that send you quivers
As kisses yet so slight?

Can you feel my soft touch
Not felt upon your skin
With your soul as so much
Released to spin and spin?

Mouthed across a crowded room
Can you hear words unspoken?
Flowery as daffodil perfume
Recall my heart’s been broken.

When you close your eyes,
Do you see another place
Of pink seas and orange skies
Never wasting any space?

Can you dance upon the moon,
To music sugar sweet
As a wood nymph to a tune,
Not caring who you meet?

Do you believe a man exists
Knighted for his bravery?
He appears through the mist
Makes food so savory.

If wavy rainbows in your mind
Wisps like cotton clouds you feel.
River's deep as rose wine.
Then your Poet heart’s revealed.

I found it hard to believe I had never taken the time to comment on this piece. I have however read it on several occasions. I'm so happy that my work inspired you to write such a beautiful piece. I am honored. Mine pales by comparison. This was truly wonderful. I enjoyed it very much. thank you for the honor and sending people to read mine.



You don't give yourself enough credit. Thanks again for the idea :)
