Beauty of words

As your ink flows 

I read as it glows 

With every word chose 

The beauty unfolds 


With your words I see

Fairytales of possibility 

I read helplessly 

Your words have a hold over me


With finesse and meaning 

The souls your words are healing 

Breathlessness with feeling 

Yes your words are worth the reading

    Yes indeed your words are worth a reading ๐Ÿ‘๐ŸŒน

    Ah the essence of what we poets wish we could hear/read from every one of our readers.
    Written like a well penned thriller with a natural progression to the final point of validation.
    Easy to read and a pleasure to read.

              ANGELA HERE - Good evening Maxine - Thanks for your appreciation of all our ODD ODES ! When we enter the World of Poetry - in any language - we quickly realise that it is in essence JUST WORDS ! However what makes each Poet unique - and some of the very memorable - is their CHOICE and ARRANGEMENT of those WORDS into something that looks beautiful (STRUCTURE) and sounds beautiful (RHYME & RHYTHM) and makes sense (SUBJECT & REASON) correct use of Grammar (SPELLING etc) is also important ! Be patient with us and accept that we all do our best in the presentation of our Poetry and can follow the accepted rules of Acroatics - Sonnets - Pantoums & Haiku etc etc. These are the elements of Classical Poetry. Modern Poetry has NO RULES of Grammer - Rhyme - Rhythm or Reason but is still acceptables as a GENRE. We try to be ENCOURAGERS of New Poets and are willing to give advice if asked - OK Thanks for all your comments & encouragement !

              Blessings & Peace to YOU & YOURS
              Love ANGELA & BRIAN ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿงก
