Wordy conversations…

Inspired by Midweek Motif and Poetics at d’Verse. Linking this with #Daily Chatter #UBC Day 19 and Imaginary Garden with Real Toads.

Wordy conversations…

#100DaysOfBlogging Day 27

am I really allowed
to not tell them aloud;
and just write them down
with a touch of rhyme,
a moment out of time.

not all may follow,
understand my muse,
it is self conversation;
I talk with myself,
a part hidden deep;
it comes out at times
when thoughts weep.

it finds my fingertips,
and escapes into ink;
when one follows,
a conversation begins;
it leads me to peace,
away from unease,
as quick as I blink.

it does not matter,
if they are allowed,
for even in writing,
my voice is aloud.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  1. So glad you shared on dVerse today! Yes indeed – the wonderful thing about writing – to write – how right it is. We can just put it all down. We give voice to who we are. I enjoyed this very much!

  2. Love the pace and rhythm of this wonderful poem, Vinay πŸ™‚ especially touched by “words, it does not matter if they are allowed, for even in writing my voice is aloud.” Beautifully penned.

    Lots of love,

  3. Words to be painted from the inkwell. Share them and wait for repercussions.
    You do well doing that, Leo. It’s been a long time, the old OSI or Acrostic days.
    Thanks for peeking in on me.

    • Repercussions of words will be there, be it voice or inkwell, Jim. πŸ™‚ So not allowing one doesn’t seem necessary.

      Glad you felt I paint words from the inkwell well. Not a very long time though. I had checked in from Poets United recently. πŸ˜€

  4. Your touch of rhyme is exquisite! So glad you shared. There is magic in poets writing about their process, their muse — and also in their voices (spoken out loud or not, their voices are still ‘aloud’ through their words). Keep letting that ink flow from your fingertips! πŸ™‚

  5. Very Deep. The expression of thoughts is liberating-either through writing or spoken words..But there is power to words that are left unspoken too..lovely poem..

    • Thank you, Janani. πŸ™‚ I’m happy that you liked it and felt it was deep. πŸ˜€ Yes, the expression of thoughts is liberating, though I find many try to chain them on purpose.
