poetry

Shades of umber and sand shifting
seamlessly up the trunk of Crepe Myrtle.
Witty lyrics that catch in my ear,
and then my heart.
These are more than just words.
This is poetry.

ah a beautiful visual on the breeze....it happens all around us...and when we listen...when we look...and capture just a bit of it...that is def poetry...

fyi...your words come through blacked out...it is a blogger glitch..you can fix it on the HTML side by deleteing the code it puts in...

Thank you Brian for the technical feedback, I think I fixed it now.

This is a perfect set of ideas. Well done. When it settles in your heart, it's poetry. Great.

'more than words'
the essence of what we strive for.

I like the image of the words finding you instead of vice versa.

When nature sings, and shadows color; when flowers plat in one's imagination, that is indeed poetry. Intuitive poem, concise and complete
