From An Intangible

Written for:  Poets United Midweek Motif~Of Poems  (posted by Sumana)
“A Poem About A Poem”

“it
takes
a lot of
desperation
dissatisfaction
and
di sillusion
to
write
a
few
good
p oems.
it’s not
for
everybody
either to

write
it
or even to
read
it” — Charles Bukowski, Poetry

 

An illusive image
is caught in my head
web, and held there
until an idea takes shape
of how to transform
that image into words
I can feel.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    Like a spider’s web you must weave the words most carefully together into the whole form for the reader to be enticed into it…to trap them!

    I love this idea of poem formation. An image breaking into words. Beautiful.

    A good poem has some weight to it, even if it’s the weight of a spider web as opposed to the weight of a stone.
