The day I became a poet

I remember the day I became a poet.

In the magnificence of the submerging sun,
I glanced upon her admiring its majesty.
Amidst hues of clementine and lilac,
her image cast a shadow so serene.

My heart began to flutter like a butterfly,
floating towards her - 
finally free from the chambers of my cocoon.
Like a silk scarf, scarlet petals wove a path,
aromatising footsteps that led to her.

Who could this mysterious lady be,
that had humbled such a hardened heart?
Although strangers, it felt as our souls
had known each other for eternity.

In twinkling twilight, I could see 
pieces of the moon illuminating through her eyes.
How could I forget how the reflection of her smile 
invited me to wander willingly into her heart.

Like nocturnal nightingales adrift in the night,
we sang sensual melodies not heard before.
Sensations felt from her soft satin skin
remain a euphoric timeless memory.

Seduced within the substance of soulful desires,
her enchanted essence became my first poem -
the purity of her existence my eternal poetry.

Silent One

Hi Silent one. I have been writing hundreds of Poems declaring I was a poet. I did not become a poet till three days ago. There was a mystical shift that I have yet to state. I wasn't writing the poems anymore. They are writing me~ the ego has been taken from me. Good thing, too. I need all the humility I can get. Your poem is stunning!! love~ Panagiota 9/23/2019

The poem is as sweet, as elevated, as divine, as spiritual, as pure as the romantic love! How wouldn't such a beauty, such a state of heart, such setting, such charm let A POET be?! I wanted to select favourite lines but couldn't! All the lines are amazing, unique and profound! Powerful imagination and wonderful imagery! It is a favourite poem. Thank you Silent One for sharing this beauty.

Your romantic and vibrant imagery impassions your enthralling poetic lines, Silent One. Your arousal, mentally, physically and emotionally is beautifully expressed as is your sincere appreciation for her inspiration of your muse.. Just gorgeous as is the Rumi quote.. Warmest wishes. ~Susan

Silent One, I did a poem maybe a year or two ago that also mentions how a first love was the inspiration for my becoming a poet. that is why I really enjoyed this one, especially the beautiful imagery.

This is endearing! "finally free from the chambers of my cocoon" ..."aromatising footsteps that led to her" Beautiful lines here. I also love "pieces of the moon illuminating through her eyes." You really know how to engage the reader with your colorful, vibrant expressions. Open hearts open doors of inexplicable art, breathtaking expression. A fav! Any poems of yours that you recommend me to read? I have much to catch up on! <3 Always, Laura
