What is poetry
Is it merely a soft scented rose on a blissful summers day
Someone telling you, Better to have loved than lost
Or rather a delve into reality
Where the pretty appear gritty
And the point of relevant
No 1 can write
Because the words are all blurred
Who is going to listen
To poems without roses
And barmy summers days
In these cynical times

    I love the state of mind taking it's own cynical look when it comes to poetry. Christopher, some poems are written and thought of with the most deepest thoughts.. I better let you go, it is time to say hello to my journal.. I'm having a cynical moment, and no one is around.. enjoyed your poem..pd
