Poet in-motion.

He carefully toys
with his words,
picking them over
with deliberate deference.

He loves to spin
a telling tale
albeit, leading you
a merry dance
and slowly fox-trotting you
to his place -

‘The Land of Make-Believe’.

This is your
special space too.
It is one,
which dares you to dream
and breathes deep inside,
your cluttered mind.

He will seduce your soul
with sought after imagery,
stroke your senses
and enrich your ordinary world.

His poetry
will clamber
in your bed of thoughts
when you drift to sleep at night,
then wake to kiss your day
in the early morning light.

A poet in motion
can never finish.
He is a willing slave
to be ‘Word-smith’.
A gift,
for which -

he is duty borne.

    This poet has my muse all a titter and fluttering about in a dither
    I would say " settle down you fool" but I have a confession I am too a willing slave of the imaginations of our poets :O))
