I send my words into the sky
Watch them rhyme and then fly.

I close my eyes and feel the air
Forgotten words lost without care.

I take the letters in my hand
And put them on a poetic stand.

I scribe the words on a starlit scroll
Watch words take shape as night unfolds.

My dreams drift from a soul that bleeds
In the blue of ink, fractured lines freed.

I run my hands over my words
My fingers feel the emotions stirred.

With tender ease, the poetry glides
From my page to your eyes.

      1. If you’ve been struggling to write I promise it doesn’t show. I’m finding creativity a hard thing at the moment as well. It’s a rotten feeling. The old man is back on WP etc. to stop himself thinking. Odd way to put it. Anyhow, have the best ever New Year ~ George

  2. Yes, with ease, your words do glide from your page to my eyes. 😍 I love how your poem animates both writing poetry and the words themselves, which is what happens when we are connected, yet able to let go. Beautiful. πŸ’–

  3. This is very very lovely… so many good lines. These parts I loved, particularly:

    “I scribe the words on a starlit scroll
    Watch words take shape as night unfolds.”

    wow… and…

    “I run my hands over my words
    My fingers feel the emotions stirred.”

    I love this image of a poet touching the letters of the starlit scroll with reverence… but the whole poem is truly magical, dear Yassy ✨✍️
