Poet and reader

Cells that form thoughts gather
in ganglia to organize better
lines and verses for conveying
feelings, ideas that are weighing
on the psyche of the writer.

Physical tissue that contains
soul and heart within the brain
all the magical connections
help to share true reflections
for connection to the reader.

Putting words on paper or screen
hoping they'll know what we mean
no two minds can be the same
readers have thoughts that came
to their own rhyme and meter.

The sign of a good poet: to lay out thoughts that resonate with the reader's perspective and experience and is alltogether universal at the same time...

RE: Poem

Don, you have way with words and poetry. Be it music or ganglia, you've got the words. Luv your poem.

RE: Poem

Another gem - thanks!

RE: Poem

Thanks, just trying to answer for myself why people are moved to write these things and wondering if the thoughts come through or more instigate new thoughts for he recipient. All is good in the end.
