MONDAY’S POEM: Poet’s Choice

May 5, 2014 Leave a comment

Today’s poem is from the archives. I opened to a random page in my journal and reached back to August 2011. I am feeling a bit conflicted today so this poem is for me and all of you out there having a conflicted Monday!

Poet’s Choice

What does a conflicted poet write?
What bubbles up from below?
What trickles down from above?

Love. A poet writes of love
For all the world to read
And understand this Queen.

Low. A poet sinks so low
To find the deepest part
And understand this King.

Light. A poet merges with light
To sing of the highest peaks
And understand this God.

A poet writes of highs and lows.
He writes of light and sings
From mountain tops.
And most of all he writes of Love!
