A heart, touched... A soul, moved...
-----------------------------------------------------
(by Sonam Mandal

The song had not left
The tip of her tongue,
Had not been penned in ink,
Or thought out in blood,
Before it filled in her heart
The wondrous joy of its coming.

Never had she met one
She could adore more,
Than the voice of a Songbird,
Singing deep and sad lore,
Of her wisdom gained,
And lovers lost to time.

Nor ever did she feel complete,
Without her favorite tune
Playing on the radio,
Electric guitar, and drumbeats,
To take her high and bring her low,
And finally settle for acoustic strings.

The poetry bled from her pen,
Onto pages waiting to be read,
Words that wrote themselves,
And she watched in wonder,
As each quivering page after another,
Filled with the ink of her thoughts.

Her dear Muse paid her a visit,
Bringing songs from afar as gifts,
And taking a little of her soul,
In the form of penned thoughts,
And music strummed from her guitar,
As a gift to the world beyond.
 ***
Thank you, Sonam, for this melodious (oh yea!! that's how lovely it is) poem... we are truly honored!!

I am BACK!!! *smile* I don't know if that scares or excites you (or if you honestly couldn't care less) but it is still the case. Entering a small triolet, inspired by NaPoWriMo 2012 and am so happy to be picnicking with you all again!

Great topic for spring - I was inspired by nature's artwork down at the harbor and again by a local artist's painting of another view close by - we poets are so lucky to have poetry fodder all around us for milling over, and especially for you who give us a place to share each other's work.Blessings and happy spring!

I went colored outside the lines. I wrote a poem for Good Friday called: A Woman's View of the Cross.
