My PoetrySoup

M y eyes see what your heart is feeling
Y our feelings you write out as poetry

P ain, love, joy, wonder, inspiration
O nly you can help me see, hear,and feel you
E ven though only words you have written they
T ouch my heart and mind deeply from within
R equiring me to write a poem so full of feeling as
Y ou become my poetry I write from my heart
S mile, laugh, cry, whisper, or shout
O pen your heart, mind, and soul
U tter your words on paper or screen
P oetry is where I see and feel your soul

Tons of comma fun!

I particularly enjoyed line "E" and how you ended it by using "THEY" to continue on into line "T". With me, it is the little things that make poetry enjoyable.

Carol, thanks for the lovely words you said in the context of my "Tunnel of Trees" poem. The wonders of life, many of which we enjoy here in Michigan, inspire many a poet, myself included. I really like your acrostic (above). You're a huge asset to the Soup community, ~Jim MeanderthalMan

This Poem is a true reflection of Poet's mind and heart, which form shapes and figures with the thrill of joy and grief, sorrow and pain dipped with the melody of love and sometimes hatred. But those, who write to inspire others like you really deserves our love beyond words. Great write from your seasoned and wonderful pen and thank you for your kind and precious comments on Pearl like Tears. Love and best wishes always....Ravindra……Carol Brown
