“wherefrom came that exalted thought ~
that inspirations with it brought”
Among the several poetry styles
we get to choose from to follow our muse,
what draws us to a cadence that beguiles;
is it intuition or egoic ruse
that for practice compels us to reuse
sacred geometry we had once learnt,
in whose embrace soul's deep emotes were burnt,
transmuted into language symbolic
and so if the format selected weren't,
in which pastures would our words then frolic?
For instance, let's consider this Dizain,
for long unused, stirred within a strong urge
to employ this form, falling like light rain,
whereupon we felt our head and heart merge,
creating music, causing a bliss surge.
Thus it appears we begin with a choice
that's ego driven, then soul lends its voice,
drawing in by magic a joyful beat,
that dances on its own whilst we rejoice,
inking a rhythm that has us all upbeat.
