Mine Poetic Perspective Of Poetry

When the moon walks on your heart,
And the world is all an art;
It is a priceless portion poetry-
A poet's song of liberty.

Liberty of words;
A saving grace from swords.
Liberty to write
The world in a whole new light.

Poetry is a kingdom
Of expression coined in wisdom.
It is a pride of life,
Even for those without a wife.

Have you seen a tortoise on a tree?
Poetry is an imagination that is free.
It is a fact without a fault,
A world wide wheel without a halt.

Poetry is a gorgeous garment,
That dresses a mournful moment.
It is all an heart-borne gift
That gives the soul a sincere lift.

Poetry is a beautiful murder
Of my pen- my bosom brother-
My first and foremost friend
Who knows all beginnings and every end.

When you hear the talking drum,
And the wiggle of a black bum bum;
It is the rhythm of a poetic riddle,
An ideation from being idle.

Of all genres of literature,
Poetry paints a peculiar picture.
She is a fountain of words to woo,
Like the torrential fall of Owu.

Have you heard of smiling stones
And the beautiful songs of dead bones?
It is the wonderful magic of poetry,
To make a city of a cementry.

So when the moon walks on your heart,
And the world is all an art;
It is the verdant voice of poetry,
A poet's sweet song of liberty.

Brilliant write, thanks for sharing! Could you also read my poem, 'The Poem'.
The best poem on poetry I ever read! add to my fav list. Thank you! 10+ It is a pride of life, Even for those without a wife.
Beautiful piece of poetry elegantly penned with good rhyme scheme. The use of appropriate metaphors to capture the essence of poetry and drive home your conviction is poetically remarkable. A lovely poem bristling with insight. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON.
This poem is spoken with pure truth. Poetry is a collection of your thoughts and feelings.Writing is the best way to escape from what's happening on the outside but writing help's what's going on in the inside. It releases any emotion that you feeling, ..., Poetry has inspired me to keep going. What a lovely poem which explains how poetry is such blessing to use.
