Poetry In Motion

Poetry In Motion

In this warped and crazy world
where the peculiar reign supreme
I lose myself in words
to live in my chosen daydream
In a bucolic existence
writing poetry and prose
Stories of escape and freedom
allow me to transpose
Away from the insanity
of a world gone haywire
Seeking tranquility
My writings do inspire
Transported to a place
of pastoral idyll
where stanzas evolve
into poetry unbridled
A waterfall of thoughts
Flowing freely from the pen
A wordsmith can choose
To be lost time and again

        Few others too? Sigh! Just when I was coming to terms with my spam status thinking I am in a way, not the best but still, special in Christine’s readers list. As for you I checked my spam, no spam from you, never a comment from you 💔
