Ink of life cannot bleed for eternity, so I place dried petals in between, crucial chapters of my memoirs. When we stop breathing poetry, our crestfallen pen, left in silence - where do we poets go? Is there a special place, where the ink flows forever, like waterfalls of mercy - where thirst quenches through poetic potions. Releasing unspoken words - can you hear the messages? Floating in the tepid breeze, brushing against your face, forming goose pimples.  When our spirits make love to poetry, we radiate like rays of sunshine warming the world. We do not speak poetry, it whispers to us, like spotlights in the sky, soothing scars upon the moon. When we cry poetic tears, we pour like raindrops, refreshing seasonal blossoms. Our muse battles storms, like lilac lilies in the snow. We illuminate like a timeless rainbow, absorbing all spectrum of vibrancy. Glistening after clouds clear, from red to yellow to green. We the word collectors, soul connectors, forever weaving like spiders spinning cobwebs. What becomes of us when our pen's shadow no longer appears. We may never write the perfect poem, but poetry reminds us we are alive - as our words become immortal. Simple Musing Silent One 25 November 2020

I depends where we go, we make our own destiny - however, if we are sad for any reason, we will fly off like a butterfly, defeated and sad to Never Never Land and just curl up and disappear into oblivion, but if we are happy it will be joyous place where soft celestial music will quell our tears and fears. Hugs and blessings, Jennifer.

Where do real poets go. I suspect there will be a space set aside distant from all the rest. A place you can discuss what you really meant with plenty of time to share any "new" musings you might receive. I fear I'll be on the outside looking in if you need a good example to get in. LOL Keep them coming. And thank you again for sharing your work with all of us on the soup. oldubk

It is good to leave something of oneself behind for others to read once we loose our rhythm. Thanks for the visits to my page. Sara

It is amazing that words will always be. Our Poetry lives on. In the wind, upon the heart- in the simplest of moments that caress our world. Beautiful and tender are your thoughts. ~ Brandy

That’s a beautiful write Silent One, poets go to their love affairs, the depths of despair, their happiness, their sorrows, thoughts of yesterday’s and hopes of tomorrow’s... Belle

Beautiful words. Sometimes the pen scratches the paper and sometimes the ink smudges. But once the message made its impact, it will never fade away ...

Ink of life cannot bleed for eternity,our words become immortal,we radiate like rays of sunshine,we pour like raindrops,We illuminate like a timeless rainbow,soul connectors,..... Oh my God! What a write. I read this more than once and mind said you can never write anything comparable to this. Don't participate in the contest. Then I thought I will write in my own way, my style, for as you say there's nothing called perfect poetry. Keep the ink flowing. You are a pleasure to read. Take care.

If it is not different it would amount to copying. I saw your contest and similar thoughts came to my mind. Then I read your poem. Now I am thinking when different I can write. Only if I get a nice thought I will participate. When I said I cannot write like you I meant poetically, the way you string words together. All have their own unique style.Take care, Regards Rama.

Thank you Rama, when I wrote this, I did not think about having this theme for the contest.. But, could not think of anything else.. I do not expect people to write like this, I would appreciate something different

'We illuminate like a timeless rainbow, absorbing all spectrum of vibrancy.' Beautiful thoughts on poetic immortality, Silent One. Happy Thanksgiving, Evelyn

Amen!!! Your pen passion radiantly radiates pulse peripheral. You see our poetic blind spots all so Maud'Dib well. Outstanding poem per usual by your Silver Surfing galactic pen. Love and happy holidays.

In order to learn about human emotion, poetry is the source. If people stop writing poems, how do we learn about people's heart? This poem reminds me of that idea. Thanks.

Interesting and thought provoking SO, We all have different styles and ideas and see life from different angles. Every poem I read is different from the next and what makes this such an interesting site. Tom

Yes, that is one aspect of the poem, the most important aspect is that we leave something behind, so are worlds live forever... Thank you

We authors create Poetry, but once written and shared, it is not ours any more. May readers find some of it inspiring, soothing, healing, emotional...The gift of words comes with endless opportunities! ~ Regards // paul
