i do not want to ponder the words
nor google terms so vague
that only a scholar could disentangle the phrase
i want to feel the words
reverberating in my skull
a resounding tribute
of all types
and forlorn souls
all of the above
… you long to “live” the poetry that you are reading. This is, I dare say the eternal struggle between sense and sensibility within passionate individuals. I’ve been struggling with it my entire life. But you know what, Charles? The (very) good news is: you may not be coming across poetry of the kind you described too often… but we, the ones visiting your blog, do! So please keep enchanting us.
Those first three lines resonate true, and I’m sure many will agree with the notion. Nice work.
I really like this. It resonates with my journey right now..a resounding tribute to birth and rebirth. Thanks for your creativity.
you gotta ponder some, to better appreciate the visceral, which you obviously do..

Yes, reverberating in my skull. That’s a perfect way to describe it.
