Poetic Mind

Thoughts casting shadows,
   hiding truth beneath its wings.
Searching for answers,
   blinded by darkness.
   lost in forgotten ideas,
Blurry images.

Faint light develops,
   breaking darkness’ talons.
Grasping for the light,
   defending its life.
Shielding it as darkness fades,
   light grows strong and high.

Merging with poet,
   moving through and into hands.
Pen clutched tight writing,
   soul begins to flow.
Empowering light evolves,
   birthing new ideas.

Thoughts become more clear,
   poet feeds off lights warm glow,
   touching hearts and lives.
Light begins to fade,
   shadows return to attack,
   search begins again.

    I can see as you seem to, poetry flows from the heart and soul. I am a retired truck driver, therefore, my poetry has to flow from a higher power than the mind. Lol. Sincerely, John Moses
