As a Poet Sees

I think constant thoughts
turning them every which way
trying to convey

experience
as deeply
as this moment

from where I 
stand
sniffing a wine's bouquet

while a eucalyptus smoke wind
fills the dusk 
like life itself

and grape leaves
spun in sunlight grow
like spider's webs

spun invisibly
by dewdrops and
September's flow 

and still I don't know if words
will ever weave a life
as beautiful as I know

but surely
the words blow
across experience

giving magical glimpses of life
as a poet sees it and tries
to show it

Suzanne Delaney

    I have a favourite spot on top of the cliffs overlooking the entrance to Whitby harbour . Once there my mind is in unison with yours. Great poem, Thank you

    hmmm some of those with a wee bit of tweak could be fine haiku ;) I think you could end at the 7th verse? I've missed you where've you been? Happy Holidays Light & Love

    Fantastic! You wonderfully described how poets focus on the moments glimpsed between clicks of a camera shutter. The moments become our words. Your feelings are expressed so eloquently with your pen.

    Nice write SuZ. The poem never comes out the way the poet experiences life. But I love to write...I loved your words....peter
