Poeta Nascitur, Non Fit

Furor Poeticus

Stirred into quickly rushing wind,
Storming words needing grounding,
Implanting seeds upon level paper,
Or growing upon vertical flat screens,
Lines of time, rushing flood of thought.

Poet stimulated mental paradoxical sleep,
Catching wave of recording in reality,
Stimulated memory flash flooding,
Moving frenzy mastering dreamscape,
Evaporating upon flash dances of light.

Rooted purpose spreading wings,
Ghostly butterfly of yesterday shadow.
Weathering creases changing time,
Wrinkling magnetic words harvesting,
Dust gathering words from past birth.

Poeta Nascitur, Non Fit

Born love language haunting characters.
Roller coaster expressional living bursts.
Wailing babe blessed then cursed to write,
Like music, words coming to enlightenment,
Implanted on keystroke pens of imagery.

In the heart of poetry, one must climb
From a gutter of one’s own fragile words.
Climb one-step up the creative mountain,
Exploring places digging deep within the
Language finding the core of the true poet.

Poetry is not about real physical wealth.
But of a dream that consumes the need,
About others enjoying something long after
You are gone in your own faded words
That haunt the grave back into smiles.

Note: While poetry has become a heart of mine, to be called a poet only time will tell the truth, and those that bestow the honor ahead of my passing will bless my path.

Most outstanding declaration!!

"Poetry is not about real physical wealth.
But of a dream that consumes the need,
About others enjoying something long after
You are gone in your own faded words
That haunt the grave back into smiles"

"Ghostly Face Smile"

One day I will I know that
Irritate Death with a smile
Upon my skeleton face
Or at least I know I will not
Loose my sense of humor
But whether I will be….giggle
A masterpiece in a museum
Well that remains to be seen
Because a rare specie are not human
But still just think about it
A human with his unique body
With his own hour work ingenuity
How strong the unique the brain is
To build a future on “mortality”
And design buildings so high
Like the Twin Towers and homes
Airplanes and spaceships
Amazing how technology
Can dig through rock into mother earth
To collect its treasures in shafts so deep
Within its core of gold and diamante
Remarkable miracle to be able
To create class from sand
But the human body will be
Ashes to ashes dust to dust
That’s why I am saying
My skeleton will
Rest with a smile
Upon my
Ghostly Face
He- He

Love Tinka
