The Poet’s Soul – Meta-Poem

Written In Response To:

NaPoWriMo Challenge 2019 – Day 28 –  I’d like to challenge you to try your hand at a meta-poem of your own.  A meta-poem is a poem about poetry.

Vermilion Cliffs on the border or Arizona and Utah - Daily Overview (@dailyoverview) on Instagram: “Check out this incredible drone shot of the Vermilion Cliffs, a mesmerizing geological formation…”

A poem is the poet’s soul…

sometimes truth, sometimes lies

sometimes a facade in disguise

it’s what can help a poet feel whole

 

A poem will convey the brokenness

the pain, the anguish, the tears that

spoken word cannot find a way to express

it is the poet’s breath when fear paralyzes

 

A poem can be the dousing of water

upon anger’s burn to become an ember

it can be the lyrics of a poet’s mind that prance

and the beat of a poet’s heart that dance

 

A poem is life’s seasons written all year round

it is the sound one hears when the poet’s heart pound

a rhyme, a rhythm, a frozen place in time held dear

the memories of love, joy, passion and laughter’s lyre

 

A poem is the stirring of the emotions going in circles

and the mind’s insanity turned into sanity’s miracles

it is the mad rambling of impatience and frustration

the soul’s muted torment within escape to freedom…

 

A poem is the intricate tapestry of a poet’s soul.
