Gift of Poetry

The words that appear
In the sky of my mind
Are not mine
They belong to the sky
I merely jot them down
And whisper to the sky,Related image
“Thank you!
For the gift of poetry.”

I read them later
And marvel
At the magic,
Beauty,Β  sublime wisdom
I whisper to the sky
“Thank you!
For the gift of poetry.”

  1. Wow! We are just the messengers as you mentioned it earlier. We read it later and think did I write it – how apt is that. Poetry is a gift! Thank You for writing it!

    1. Yes, indeed. I read some words of a Sufi mystic (Hazrat Inayat Khan) in which he says that souls are conduits of cosmic energy (or something like that) — and some receive music, some words and poetry, some painting — it is a gift, an openness to the Universe in one dimension. Your poem actually felt like a magical representation in words of his thoughts. Thank YOU, dear Sam! I loved it in so many ways. 😊
