i liked that.. it all goes back to my beliefs of the poet being the puppeteer by playing with peoples emotions.. kind of like a "strings attached" cliché.. i enjoyed this because of what was said and how the descriptions were used.. you went from simple to difficult with the lines and the words. and that is what i liked.. good job
This is wonderful, and what a perfect way to pay tribute to someone that has made such a diffrence. You are very right about the diffrent ways people inspire you to do better and change...there have been many of those here for me as well. This was written with such caring sensitivity, and straight from the heart. I also love the analogy about fishing, and to think I thought I hated fishing,lol. Until next read Denise
this is a beautiful dedication to Nan, she is indeed a poetic soul who writes from the depths of her heart and soul.
like you say, this could refer to many poets who share their souls with us from the page. appeasing the muse is what we all try to do, i think. this has a wonderful flow, kind of like a river running free with fish dancing in the cool water looking for sustenance. thanks for sharing your gifts with us too! peace&poetry @ Cat
Thanks so much for writing this. It's good to know you see into me and can call me a poetic soul. As for the way I write, the fishing metaphor is a great description. A good storyteller hides the details and creates nearly a "punch line" surprise at the end. I guess it's similar to a joke in many ways. I can assure you I am not conscious of the way things are composed, I am faithful and loyal to listening when a opportunity strikes me. To know it is amusing for someone else, and sharing here at elite is something I truly love. Thanks again for this new fave,
