Gold Finger Bars
Recovered from the Spanish Nuestra Senora de Atocha





 

the color of my world right now
is grey black and white
bad weather keeps me locked inside
both day and night
but when I take up pen and pad
to write a poem or two
my whole world changes color
with no room for blue
I see in colors of red and green
purple,orange,yellow
my words dance like jumping beans
not one of them mellow
there's great excitement when I write
I get all warm inside
words fire up all my synapses
give my cells a ride
Poets that get into the zone
know just what to do
write our dreams and emotions
give them all to you
I hope this poem stirs your passion
Like nuggets of glittering gold
So you can know just what it's like
Inside a poets soul

U must have written longer than any of us. Each style you choose for each opus is concisely phrased, time and worded to deliver the max impact. If I wrote more poems I still couldn't do it, because you've studied and absorbed it somehow. So when can we get your book?
Your poetic cell synapses are right on! What's the song's name again?

Nice photograph, here I thought they only found silver and gold chains. Words of stirring amazement to get anyone's heart and mind pumping to write more and write well. A joyous piece indeed....

Eileen, this is a fantastic write, I enjoyed every line because it fits me perfectly. I can be so down and go to my computer and let the words change my world in a heart beat. This paints a real picture of beauty and the words tells me it's from your heart. Loved it!

You can paint a whole poetic rainbow in an instant, Eileen, and are mistress of every shade and hue in the book... from mellow yellow right through to singing cyan and back again. And your rhythm and metre, voicing and tone are always in register, too. Keep tucked up if "the weather outside is frightful" cos "inside it's so delightful" and bring us more of your Gauguin refrains! :)) xx

A beautiful soul filling poem, Eileen...your photo brought back memories...one of my dearest friends was a marine archealogist on the Atocha dive, and I was invited to go on the dive boat several times and even got to hold some of the gold and jewels they were recovering from the wreck...a most exciting summer!

Those gold bars became after the melting of a golden chronicle of a civilization much older and civilized than the spanish looters that murdered and pillaged in the name of a God that didn't want any of it.
Yes, this poem stirs my passion, the passion of an humble poet that bleeds for the underdog.

"my words dance like jumping beans" - I love this line! Very original and great imagery to those words. This is a unique piece. I've seen many figure skaters interpret this music ("Send in the Clowns"?) but this is the first time I've experienced it combined with words. Well done! Great words to express a poet's soul:)

It helps to stay busy when inside, even if writing. It keeps your mind sharp and your fingers nimble and active. That is a good thing, Eileen: a very good thing! Stay safe and know you are always in my thoughts/prayers!

Poets don't have soul, Eileen, they have . . . Wait! I believe you are correct . . . In fact, it could be that poets have the best souls of all . . . Even the nasty-turn-a-phrase poet . . . But what about we who are not poets, and only write poems? . . . LOL . . . Good one . . .
