Constant awe

Poets live
each day in
a state of
constant
awe —
they feel
more than
they write —
words will
never suffice.

    Feelings are often hard to put into words. Some days, my feelings transform into lovely words. Other days, my feeling must wrestle with containmentโ€ฆ.for the keyboard just isn’t large enough.

    This is so true. Couldn’t have written it better.

  11. Excellent!
    You and Emily Dickinson have something in common!
    “To see the Summer Sky
    Is Poetry, though never in a Book it lie —
    True Poems flee –“

    • Thank you kindly, Thomas! I am humbled that you mentioned me in the same sentence as Emily Dickinson. I’ve always felt a deep connection with her poems. I’m a simple, quiet introvert who finds pleasure and peace in the company of Nature.

      Upon reading this
      and if you have the chance
      glance around you
      stop and watch
      never take for granted
      the beauty which
      busies itself
      around us

  12. It is a great state to be in Tyler. โ€“Curt

    • Thank you, Curt! That bliss of awe-struck silence…this is where I find myself, lost in the moment. Hope you have a wonderful week ahead, my friend!
      Cheers,
      Tyler
