Hi Soupers, I started out with the intention of writing a Rondeau for the contest about poetry. But this is where my muse led me enjoy:-) Alexis
Poetry is words and rhymes on a page, It's a poet bearing their soul for all to see. Conveying a message for their reader, It could be happy or sad. Poetry can express a powerful message likened to " What's Going On" by Marvin Gaye or " I Have A Dream" by Martin Luther King " or " Imagine" by John Lennon" or Phenomenal Woman" by Maya Angelou. Poetry has the power to heal a broken heart. I know what poetry can do,because it was a lifeline to me, when I was broken and in despair. It healed me and continues to heal me . 7-28-19 Alexis Y

Your muse wanted a further therapeutic explanation of its value spelled out for you and the rest of us. I loved reading the reminders of all it can and does to. It has been one of the purest parts of my life and added volumes to my journey, as I journeyed. I enjoyed reading this, Alexis! Poetry hugs ... CayCay
