Enter The Poem

Come in enter the poem
why stand there like an iceberg out of sorts
in the tropics dripping noise baked
in fiery waters.

Come in enter the poem
lyrical veins of solemn silence
balls of verbs rolled into joy
subjects at the sharpened fore
fill your past tensed famished soul
on buffets of adverbial gourmet

Come in enter the poem
peace reigns in restful phloem
rhyming tendrils comb your hair
adjectives in starchy flair
sweet the smell of inflorescence
atop the noun of lofty essence

Come in enter the poem
live in symphony of life's distances
rendered in notes of trembling nuances

'Come in enter the poem live in symphony of life's distances rendered in notes of trembling nuances' I enjoyed this piece.
this is a flowing and delicious meta text
i don't know where to begin w/ this. Evocative imagery, and thought-provoking ideas. Starts with a distinct rhythm, gels into rhyme, ends w/ a break in form that suggests the sometimes wandering spirit of the poet's muse. Not sure, but i think this is a masterpiece.
i loved this piece! it's marvelous.you're very talented with words.
