Fay Slimm.




No Limits.

The sky has no limits to poets who
materialize an insideness of things, linguistic
verses emerge while well-crafted ideas woo
words that cannot resist.


Like any romantics their sensitive
skills portray sparklets of sentence-diamante'
studded with entrancing perception inventive
when scribed as fantasy.


Such is their means of expression
that seams of poetic mesh mould a moonlight
magic to graphic lines which tied to freshness
become boldly inviting.


Poets drift nearer to insightful art
by heedful word-fervour when souls realize
truth that mysterious Muse compels hearts 
to write yet never ask why.

                So beautiful... Yes, the mysteries of the writing process. You couldn't have said it better: Such is their means of expression / that seams of poetic mesh mould a moonlight / magic... It's a mysterious process and, I think, you can never quite trace it, pinpoint how it happens because so much of it is unconscious. I think the muse speaks through poets' unconscious. Thank you for this lovely poem.

                A relationship with poetry is indeed all within our own perception of writing and putting eccentric word on a path which lead down to where the heart is pulled hard on it's strings. From the experiences of writing I've discovered on here is miraculously effecting in which I among many others leaves a trace of kinship within all our poetry magic and that is what you have achieved on this poem. Great work, my friend.
