A Poem is Born

The ink dried long ago,
Pages left blank,
Thoughts buried
deep under,
Heart aches,
The pain festers,
Silently drips the blood,
Slowly becomes
A torrent.

The world turns,
and somewhere,
exuberant keystrokes dance
a rhythmic dance,
words flow across a screen,
unknown, unloved,
A poem is born.

Poetry is my passion. I am not a methodical writer. I have no set topics to write about. What I feel, perceive, think about, I will like to share in this blog. I open my mind to the world. Like the weather, sometimes my poems are cloudy, sometimes stormy. I always like to see sunshine streaming through the leaves of trees, so I hope I can share some of those sunshine with my readers.

  1. I really like this one, my favorite. By the way, how do create stanzas on wordpress? Or separate paragraphs? I recently posted a poem but I cannot divide it into the original stanzas.

    1. Long time no see Marta. Hope everything is going great with you.

      Once WP forced the Gutenberg block editor, I stopped writing in WP directly. Instead I write in Google doc and the copy paste in WP and while pasting paste as plain text. That way every stanza gets copied into separate blocks. Then if required I edit individual blocks. Not an elegant way of doing it but works for me. Let me know if this works for you.

      Thanks for your comment.

      1. You are welcome. I am fine, just been too busy to be on WP. I edited my poem using Microsoft Word, the most commonly used program, and then did copy and paste into separate blocks like you. WP seemed to respect the stanzas, but I logged out and when I checked out the poem the form got lost.
