Beat of A Poetic Mind

I thought to dance upon your page

move to whatever rhythm Id find

romance, angst, peace or rage 

raw and edgy, smooth and refined

A symphony of worded passion

rising to a crescendo of feeling

a cymbal crash the culmination

leaves your dancers reeling

Came upon some back street blues

interlude of emotional free fall

you listened well to that muse

your tune held dancers in thrall

Mother Nature shared her melody

a calming tune for sheltered souls

aspiring to become a rhapsody

giving your dancers back control

The unforgiving crush of metal

ensconces nerve endings with fire

continuous stinging of nettle

dancers for you ready to retire

So my dance comes to a close

the cadence you designed

the beautiful songs you compose

ah the beat of a poetic mind

It is most certainly a dance deciphering the innuendos of a writer's mind but there in lies the fun and the intrigue.

a wonderful portrait you have offered.

We all dance to the beat of our own drum...some of us better than others...and no one really hears the same song even if their tuned into the same station...i just write what I'm hearing in my head pretty sure they aren't even my songs...i really like this one...poems about poems are awesome.

Nice rhyme with fairly good meter and flow.  The beat of a poetic mind will never cease to make me ponder just what goes on in there. But then - that's what writers do.  ~Pamela

A dance to words spun to hold closely and dearly to ones heart.

When a feeling taps the heart to dance with another part(ner) 

The dancing queen

with her poetry

An etude in excellence.  Rhyme --when subtle -- like this -- thrills me.  It is indeed music.  As someone said: Play on!  --David

A cornucopia of rhyming words, a plethora of rhythm style and meter, superb in every way. I love rhyme well done.

The power of words can be more exacting than physical endeavours, sometimes. Excellent work, Kym.
