Birdsong

Birdsong brings relief
to my longing
I'm just as ecstatic as they are,
but with nothing to say!
Please universal soul, practice
some song or something through me!

nice poem, once a poet, always a poet...Yes, everything starts with a thought...
I like the poem and I love the sentiments expressed. Visually three 3 line verses then a 5 line verse then 3 then 4 then 3 then 5 is a bit off putting but the emotions and the way they are expressed verbally is awesome
Your description of all that goes into writing poetry is accurate and beautifully expressed...
A wonderful expression of a poet through this penning.
Really beautiful, I like it.
