-Day One-

Day one, the Earth seems not to miss a beat I’m newly married to my poetry Seeming the beginning of a new start Loving link will last an eternity We’ve a bond that is inseparable Nothing like it in the whole world today Only other poets can understand Words that pour out is what we want to say Though expressed in ways that’s quite allusive Mysterious and charming is the way Loving and daring dynamically Proposed is what’s shown, alive on each day Day two is completion of the poem So secluded it has hidden between The facet and beam with life’s illusion Trying to show just what is truly seen Into the world of poetry I go Hoping that I fit in with my efforts Not knowing here if I surely do now I’m humbled every day by the experts

    Russell. I bet you made the winners list. I just saw I got an HM for mine and I did not notice about yours but I bet it is in the top ten! I wanted respond to what you said about King sun and having a prince moon. I can't do that, because Moon is the QUEEN. I have other poems about her marriage to King Sun. So Sea is just one of his many mistresses. haha

    Your poetry are songs from your heart and soul and you're able to elegantly tap into them, and translate them into creative and amazing ways. I truly think this is what poetry is all about: tapping inward and translating ideas, feelings and emotions outward. Warm Smiles, Connie

    Excellent! Yes we are all the same-- expressing ourselves through our images and words of inspiration... on a good day! I wrote a poem called "Ulteriority"-- poets and their character traits-- Good luck for the competition.

    What experts? Is there such a thing? No one can ever perfect language. I could connect with your passion for writing here. Loved the marriage metaphore. Good luck.
