THE POETRY EXPRESS

Thundering beats my heart along As hooves upon the tundra wide I rejoice at life, Its reveal inside Repeat echo, of tales millennia told Heart and sinew; my desires unfold. I channel into lines on paper! These thoughts and feelings Some snap into my mind, Like an alligator' Their bite upon my manner Is strong, in expressive throes I hope not too long? And time? What holds are upon my span? But what I allow. As a sentient Man! Or woman; should I think some more? Enchanting challenging brave and raw So not by rote, or times and plan. Yet by diving deep; into poetry’s song. ©Joe Maverick 20-11-2022

Hello Pangi, I wondered when someone might comment on this one? I'm glad you enjoyed It I was at ease putting it down, I went with the flow its Not a 'perfect piece' I feel.' And yet if anyone is looking to read an off the cuff write, this Is just such a one.' All blessings.'
