Poetry Me

Line of fire

~Poetry Me~

I dived
To reach core of fire
Burning heat
With revolving lava
That keeps the earth together
But for me
I wanted to be
Face to face with poetry
To ask it
Why does it tremble?
The world that I'm in
As I plunged
Into the water of my soul
Tasting the burns of heat and cold
On the edge of poetry flame
I uttered two precious words
"Poetry Me"
My soul was so taken back
Hearing my pleading heart
But then I continued to urge
For the poetry flame
To even love me more
At every poetry touch
Escalating my being high
Then with swift of its reach
In countless brush
With electrifying fire
To poetry me endlessly

After reading this poem again I am struck by this great line and hook.

"Into the water of my soul
Tasting the burns of heat and cold"

To me these words give essance to the poem in a clear visual picture. BRAVO!

Dear Nasra: this is REALLY, REALLY nice.. what i love, one more time, is the honesty and the pure passion in the poem. But one extra thing - this time, you have also played with words very well..that, from all the work of yours that I have read so far, is a first.. Congratulations!

"How we feel about ourselves crucially affects virtually every aspect of our experience...from the way we function at work, in love, in sex, to the way we operate as parents, to how high in life we are likely to rise. The dramas of our lives are the reflections of our most private visions of ourselves!"

This is like a thread made of pure spirit of poetry. We are our art. Our own expression to present to the world.

And in words it's most beautiful to see.
