Birth of a Poem

A plethora of words
bubble up effervescently
in rhapsodic, evanescent waves,
disappearing before grasped.

They play dulcet tones
wrapping through
mind’s background with
felicity and growing energy.

A talisman…
Get ready.
It comes.

The idyllic chrysalis
matures into something more…
Something as radiant as sapphires,
Yet, more alive.

A discomfort appears--
labor pains
for each word
each break.

With a push of thought,
it is born,
bringing joy,
comfort,
to those who cherish it.



Created from these challenge words from SO: plethora, felicity, evanescent, rhapsodic, idyllic, dulcet, chrysalis, radiant, sapphire, talisman.

Smiles, I'm a connoisseur if large words. They tease the palate and leave a imprint with the reader.

as the words are conceived the heart allows them to breathe so that others may perceive based on what they believe rather if the words achieve the ability to relieve stress and other things that cause us to grieve so that we may receive the message that the pen does bleed....this is wonderful jaycee....;)
