Priceless

Poets
command
a wealth
of diction —
but when
they champion
simple words
to convey
a deeper
purpose —
that is
priceless.

  1. a profound expression of poetry’s grail

    • Thank you, Paul! I think you’ve found this grail in more ways than one with your eloquent poetry:) Happy Holidays, my friend, and I wish you all the best in 2014!
      Cheers,
      Tyler 🙂

    you are soooo right. it is the simplest of poems – a few words, simple words that can pack the most punch.

    • Thank you, Kim! I’m glad you agree. It’s funny b/c when you think of poetry, the expression ‘less is more’ does not come to mind. Some people have a preconceived notion that all poets are long-winded; however, poetry is about matching the right words with the moment, not just throwing diction at a dart board to see what verbs stick 😉 I hope you have a pleasant evening/night & Happy Holidays!
      Cheers,
      Tyler 🙂

  3. How true and eloquent. I love the depth of simple words. Please find time to read and comment on my poetry on my blog, Rain-Chimes, http://drsmitasriwas280.wordpress.com/

    I couldn’t agree more!

  5. I too have attempted poetry but, this is poetry!! The meaning flows between the spaces of a few chosen words!!

  6. Isn’t it true?! Yes! Although I appreciate intricate and flowery poetry, sometimes the most profound comes in a much simpler form.
    I love the flow of this, Tyler. 🙂

  7. Brevity: thou art a jewel. I’ve written reams on this subject…simply tomes. 😉

    • Thank you, Karen! So true…succinctness and simplicity are the skeleton keys to poetic success…bare bones brought to life after opening the closet…jump-starting our hearts…the cause of our active imaginations 🙂 Hope you have a wonderful day, my friend!
      Cheers,
      Tyler
