The Poet – #Ethree #Doubleethree


The Poet

I hear you
Baring your soul
Exposed to the world
Telling deepest secrets
Does anybody hear you
Take time to cipher out the words
Unravel your innermost puzzle
Learn the intimate secrets of your mind?
I think there is more there than people see
I pull back the multilayered words
Unravel the deep mystery
I accepted the challenge
I took the time to look
Found the lost meaning
And I found you
In plain sight


Written for Colleen’s Poetry challenge.  Each week she gives us two keywords, only we must use synonyms only, not the words themselves.  This week  the key words were the poet’s (me ;) ) choice, so I chose “Enigma” and “Poem” This week I decided to do an  ethree, well, actually a double ethree.

To A Poet Unborn


Looking over the nameless dead
Dust drinking the blood of all
I think of an unborn poet
Whose blind eye sees them fall
He’ll know their hearts and minds
And write a story for us all

He’ll give each man a name
And name family and friend
He’ll tell their passions
Then relate their gory end
He’ll speak of the wife and daughter
Who will no longer see their man
He will talk of fields untended
While the bodies rot in sand
Achaian or Trojan, it matters not
They all have the same loves and joys
And each side in a useless war
Throws them out like useless toys Continue reading

A Poem for Prose (Again)

You will never find
A great dusty tome
Leather bound and fragrant
On whose spine is written
 “The Complete Poems of Trent”
No university class
Will teach my verse
No students
Hanging on every word
For I am not a poet
I pretend not to be one
I am not a poet Continue reading
