A Poet


A Poet.

A poet desires to walk
through untrod fields,
looking for treasures others leave       
and picks diamond yields
from where no one looked before.   

Some gems a poet will store
for usable times
folding away in unique style                  
awe's gold to a scribe                                   
who feels need for authentic more.

    simply Brilliant, dear fay
    makes me want to go scribble
    something/anything, poetic
    this very moment!
    (Poesy's, 'gold rush'
    evermore abundant, with vigour never dwindling
    'excavating' from within, while digging
    everything, that hovers near
    its starving, sense's..
    and it all begins, anew
    next time, a kid
    reads a verse and begins
    to see
    that gold nugget in the sky
    and those pearls, hiding in clouds
    while threading upon 'liquid silver'
    rivers, of life)

      "Untrod fields,looking for treasure"
      We do indeed.Sometimes we find a brick wall.Other times,a treasure chest.
      Great poem Fay.

        good poem

        • Fay Slimm.

          Thank you for dropping by for a read jazz - -- it seems the subject makes up for the strange linage which I could not alter however I tried.

        • Bella Shepard

          It takes the true heart of a poet to recognize the treasures that others may never see. Your heart is bursting with treasures and I am always in awe.

          • Fay Slimm.

            Thank you Bella. How kindly your comment on my small offering of tribute to poets who look at all sides of the simple t;hings.

          • Teddy.15

            Dearest Fay so very true, although for years I didn't know I was doing it

            Some gems a poet will store
            for usable times
            folding away in unique style

            The most ugly of times have somehow come out to be somewhat masterpieces at least to me. Beautifully woven. 💖

            • Fay Slimm.

              Hi dear Teddy --I appreciate muchly your visit and read of 'A. Poet and your thoughtful comment is very welcome - yes ability to grasp and pen even the ugly is a test to a poet who works words into nuggets. Apologies for the odd spacing of lines etc -- nothing I tried would alter the spacing so had to post as is and hope by next time my edit behaves.

                Incredible poem about a poet.

                • Fay Slimm.

                  Am so glad you enjoyed the small tribute to poets who look a bit deeper than normal at what is all around.

                    This is wonderful. Two things just changed for me,:
                    1) I have to look for the "Untrod fields"
                    2) I have to start a file for "Gems."

                    I read this and felt a lot better about myself. I think you have the heart of a poet. Never have I thought about what a poet is in quite the same way that you've expressed here. Loved it. -Phil A.
