P oetic rendition, images entwined with filigreed creations,
O dyssey of a poet's journey, INFUSION of deeper emotions.
E nthralling rhymes and meters born of a silence unknown,
T ethered on timeless wings, leaving an imprint on our souls.
R oving minds travel to far off unknown gulfs and plains,
Y arns of ILLUSIONS, as ballads are sung with refrain.
P oet's CREATIVITY , words take form floating on blank pages,
A dorned verse may lie in a nook, unseen for ages.
L aconic expressions hold far greater intent and meaning,
A rtisans explore the INEVITABLE truth of life's gleanings.
C aress me, the words like snowflakes on a window pane,
E VENTUALLY a poet turns to dust, poetry flurries through the snow and rain.
