Below is the poem of the day entitled She is Poetry which was written by poet July Morning.


She is Poetry

Have you seen the way she writes,
dear poets?

Words that bleed and rhymes that plead
for tender love to sate each need.
And verse that cries for happy sighs
or a touch that bids her blood to rise.
Her poems dwell on wretched spells
where lovers leave and hopes are quelled-
alone she weeps in private hells.


Have you seen the way she writes,
dear poets?

Songs filled with pain and endless rain,
of relationships pursued in vain.
Each sonnet penned our souls would rend
as dreams and wishes reached their end.
And with each stroke our hearts were broke-
for who could bear the angst evoked
as tears her memories would stoke?

Have you seen the way she writes,
dear poets?

Poetic praise for summer days
and nights afire with passion's blaze.
Her Seuss-like rhymes of social crimes
inspired hope for better times.
And late one night by candlelight
she weaved a tale of Poe-ish fright
that made us shiver with delight. 

Have you seen the way she writes,
dear poets?

She is poetry


"And when I'm sad, yes when I'm blue 
and there's not really much to do
I get online and there I find
a treasure trove, a real gold mine-
those pretty words arranged just right
read early morn or late at night
can turn my greys to rainbow hues
and wake within this dormant muse."

Beautiful words expressed from the heart of a poet. Your words define the heart of what poetry is meant to be. The poem flows and the words say everything by evoking thoughts within the reader's consciousness. This is a beautiful tribute to your muse, described with feelings born within the heart and released by the soul. I predict we will hear your wonderful words again soon, enjoy your respite my friend, Emile.

Breaks are needed. Take care and remain blessed Tommy! If it's over a two week period, you don't have the permission to leave. : )

Hi J.M. this is an excellent piece of poetry. From beginning to end this piece sings poetic talent. This poem shows that the muse is definitely not dormant. The muse sings gold. This golden gem goes into my faves. Have a wonderful Saturday. Your friend.....Mike.
