True Poetry

sat there
in her room
wondering so
thinking much too hard
to find an idea
to write a poem that day
ideas came, ideas left
soon confusion arose in her mind
for indeed, poetry comes, from the heart.

    With just 55 syllables you brilliantly create a complete thought, and so clever. I'm quite impressed with your writing, Maryam. Good job! Ruben.

    Love the last line in this one--poetry does often come from the heart. Nice use of this challenging form. I can relate to your words. At times, the harder I try the harder it is to find the right words. Thank you for sharing your poem with us and for your kind comments on mine. Blessings to you. Have a wonderful day. Karen

    Indeed it does come from the heart, Maryam. We cannot force the thoughts or words, they simply "come" to us when we look inside ourselves. A very true definition of "True Poetry." Love, Carolyn
