Poetry: The perfect noun

If I had wings to fly
I would go to the scarlet moon
On the wings of a diamond night
Trying to live again
Because the poet in me cannot die
I would go in search of my muse
I would go in search of eternity..

Under an ancient sky 
That spills the sun in my hair
Wildflowers in my eyes
Poetry on my lips
When the wind sings on my skin
Broken heartstrings kindle a lilt
Clouds weep into the blue
My soul goes sleepless
As the moon and sun wake together
Feeding my soul with ink
In a silence that goes ballistic
A quill that needs to be tranquilized
I idolize thoughts that spring
From poetry..
My mind stops hurting
I crash my hourglass..

  1. Your muse worked overtime on this one! Too many phrases that I loved to quote them all, but a few that particularly resonated were: “A quill that needs to be tranquilized” and like you, “I idolize thoughts that spring from poetry.” Yassy, your poetry speaks to me!

  2. The poet in you can never die, beautiful and so true and that last line…crashing the hourglass, a perfect symbolism of the poetess never resting in you. Poetry is the perfect noun but also the perfect verb because you put so much action into its motion and make it beautiful. You are a creative conjunction because you connect with your readers in a lovely way Yassy🌹🌹.

  3. Hi Yassy, I must commend your creativity and the evergreen words you bring up each time you publish on your blog. You made my 2018 incredible and I always look forward to your next publications. In the same light, I have received a good number of likes from you on my blogs as well. It really gladdens my heart each time I notice your likes and comments.
    More importantly, I have a forthcoming publication titled β€˜Voices’ and I am in need of contributing poets on this one. I am hoping you will be interested in contributing to this effort. β€˜Voices’ as titled is meant to discuss about the different visage of love – sweet love and sour love. In this publication, each contributing poets will come up with two poems; one perfect love story and the other, a sad love story.
    I was studying at your blog and I discover you have done so much on this subject matter, if given the permission I will go ahead to pick from the poems on your blog. I am hoping to have (15) fifteen contributing poets; among these poets are: Robert Okaji, Ragazza Triste, Vinz-Double-O, Luna, Specsladeyes, Baffy Basics, Cubby, Shefali among others. Your contribution and support will be well acknowledged and preached.
    Thanks for your consideration. I hope to hear from you soon.

    1. Is your publication online ? Of course it is. Will it be published on your blog here.
      Are you sure you are not mistaking me for someone else because I checked your blog and find I have not read any of your posts.


      1. I will look through your blog and let you know if I come up with something. If I don’t, I’ll let you know. I’ll also let you know. If permitted, you will carried along in all the processes and procedures of the production.

  4. How unique is your writing! What a wordsmith you are! I loved these lines the best: “In a silence that goes ballistic
    A quill that needs to be tranquilized.”
    I have that pen in hand at times. But thank God, you don’t have the syringe !
