The Poet’s Pulse

The cadent throbbing silent and heard
The pulsing hidden and seen
Emotions held and free
The panting of the poet’s palette
Words of color, hue, mood and timbre
Sonorous images of light
Orchestrated upon the page
So tolls the poet’s pulse.

  1. A really fascinating blog. I hadn't been before, but shall come again. I particularly liked Opus 1.

  2. Thank you for visiting. I too will plan to stop by your way. Life is abundant and a delight to share!
