Ode to a Writer

Ode to a Writer

Who will find it?
my consonants of Gold, 
and vowels of Silver,
my pearls of poetry,
and rubies of writing,

Who will find me?
So, I can be paid
the Big, Big bucks?,
So I can hob knob
with Who's Who,
and lecture them
on such and such. 

Publishers out there,
I got plots to pitch,
ideas to discuss,
Ways to make you rich

But All in All, 
I'm tired of waiting
And God,
I've been praying
for that right way of saying,

Sir, would you, Uh
Ma'am, could you, Um.
What if I Uh
Maybe I could Um.

Who will find it?
my consonants of Gold, 
and vowels of Silver,
my pearls of poetry,
and rubies of writing.

Comments: Like many of us, I hope to be discovered, go “viral”. I like the “Sir, would, Uh”, shows my shyness, awkwardness, wanting and fearing fame I guess. FEEDBACK WELCOME.

Noel, there are millions of poets. I don't think it's the path to riches? I know Poets who are published. Far from rich. Our world values technology over words from our soul. I think you are a very good writer. Sharing your heart counts most. And you can self publish on line. One need not have a publisher. Nor be found, as they say.

While most don't get rich off of writing poetry it is an ambitious career path. And it can happen. I want to be a famous poet too. This is your best poem out of the ones I've read. Good luck!

Noel, I really enjoyed your poem and the imagery. I think all poets have thought that one day they'ed make it big and get rich with their work. Some do, most don't. Some may receive fame posthumously.

Thanks Susan, Your feedback encourages me to write more. I hope we both become rich and famous "pre-humously", if that's a word. :)

I can't put it in a nutshell but I SO ENJOYED THIS POEM. I loved the idea of gems being used to represent your art of expression. It was a wonderful way to start and end a poem.

Thanks Wendy, the word "gems" makes me realize how much poets value each word. Can I read a poem of yours?
