“Always be a poet, even in prose.”

Today is World Poetry Day and the title of this poem is the theme of this day…

I sift through my feelings, trying to make sense

Of the cornucopia of emotions intense

That unfortunately threaten

To overwhelm me, quite often

To prevent my emotions from smothering me

I collate them into words, string them desperately

Into a form I can better appreciate

A verse takes shape to describe the state

Of my mind- I find myself getting in the flow

I pour my heart out in a poem, and so

I distill into words and rhyme the essence

Of the sum total of my experience

Thus chaos in life that has been vexing me

Is transformed in to soothing poetry..

  1. I am amazed how you find the words every day. Probably explains why I am definitely not a poet, but surely do appreciate those who are. Happy World Poetry Day to you!


      1. I am so impressed! Every day you have a different topic, and they are all wonderful. Some days I cannot even find a good photo for the word challenge! 😆 Good gosh, I cannot even find a photo…🙄
