his words
so softly placed
grace each page
a master artisan
each richly woven
verse creates
perfect patterns
of tapestry
yet, the finest
of all his
lies not in each
poetic stitch
but in
of his

Yes it true. We do see beyond the words of the poem. We see the soul of the author, his/her very being. The words seem only the doorway into that soul. Your poem is so outstanding in that you've captured that truth so well.

Beautifully written I love the brevity of the words how they just say enough and no more.

Hello Cindy Darling

What a rich tapestry you weave here, full of golden and red and blue silk threads that weave into this beautiful piece.

Another gem from a Gem of a Lady.

Well - This must be about Mr Shakespeare Cindy?

A man for all times and all men and all women too!



A technical comment:-

"patterns of pure



This metaphor seems a little over egged - what, for example, is an impure tapestry? It is the word  'pure' . All tapestries made of weft and wool must perforce be pure tapestry. I assume hat what you mean is that his words create wonderful, intricate pictures with the richness and brightness of tapestry. Could you say 'bright tapestry'  or 'intricate tapestry' I cannot think of another single syllable word to replace 'pure'  (fine?) but would a 2 syllable word be OK? If so  then there lots.

Superb Cindy. I have read nothing finer.

If I could put into words what I felt while reading this, that indeed would be poetry itself, but in truth Cindy you have excelled yourself, so there are not enough words to do you justice, suffice to say if the hand could hold the heart, then the eyes would see the soul~Graham.

Wow Cindy! This is some powerful stuff here! "Yet the finest of all his gifts lies not in each poetic stitch, but in the transparency of his soul". Just beautiful Cindy, a masterful work of poetry!  Henry

This is simply romance distilled down to the basic elements.  An excellent poem.
Comment By: FreeRoger Bacon on June 26, 2008 11:04:26 AM Report
Can you say a poet is transparent?  Just kidding, I realize the core of this is a poet you have read and left an impact on you but I can't help but notice how sincere the narrator is and how that voice picks up on the finer points of reading poetry and how it is supposed to pluck an emotional chord and let the reader in.  I always think it a blessing if a poet can have that just once in a lifetime.
