Light of poetry

The thing about poetry,
Or whatever I feel is poetry,
Is no frills, no spare words,
Only bones given
To be filled with imagination
Of whoever reads
The lines, or between;
The appeal of poetry for me
Is in getting my feels,
My thoughts , my words right,
the only thing that matters,
The only thing making me write
I know no other way
That makes my heart see light …
Inspired by the prompt @ Toads and Reena’s exploration challenge

I never knew

“This is what I learned: that everybody is talented, original and has something important to say.”
– Brenda Ueland

Never knew when I put to use,
this thought i read
and its a wonder
I remembered too.
Asked him to write
and care not for reaction
had a faint feeling,
his words must be freed
and let take flight,
that ideas he never had
must some day see light,
and I see him today
miles ahead
spinning magic
and reality alike
with the same pen,
he never knew he had.

Prompted @ November PAD day#2 :

For today’s prompt, use an epigraph to kickstart your poem. That is, use a quotation. You can use a favorite of your own, or if you’re having trouble thinking of one, I’ve provided a few below. To format an epigraph poem, a poet places the quotation between the title and the body of the poem, while also giving credit to the source of the quotation.
