For POETS UNITED ~ Midweek Motif: The Joy of Poetry ~ Ah Poetry' Pleasure and Peace

when emotions awake
ideas arise, exciting the
mind stirring the soul

when beauty manifests
sinking into the spirit
casting palls or filling joy

then the desire for
words begins the search
a phrase a form perched

on an empty page and
we say it is a poem
here we have poetry

sometimes spontaneous
sometimes dragging
yet it comes letter

by letter word by word
penned silently
loudly heard....

Ah this is poetry......
pleasure and peace


  1. Well written. I like the last couple of stanzas it really pulls it together well.

    1. Thank you Sherry I have been quite away from poetry myself...many reasons, many I don't know....Thanks to Poets United for motivating encouraging supporting and above all appreciating....
