A heart, touched... A soul, moved...
(by Sonam Mandal

The song had not left
The tip of her tongue,
Had not been penned in ink,
Or thought out in blood,
Before it filled in her heart
The wondrous joy of its coming.

Never had she met one
She could adore more,
Than the voice of a Songbird,
Singing deep and sad lore,
Of her wisdom gained,
And lovers lost to time.

Nor ever did she feel complete,
Without her favorite tune
Playing on the radio,
Electric guitar, and drumbeats,
To take her high and bring her low,
And finally settle for acoustic strings.

The poetry bled from her pen,
Onto pages waiting to be read,
Words that wrote themselves,
And she watched in wonder,
As each quivering page after another,
Filled with the ink of her thoughts.

Her dear Muse paid her a visit,
Bringing songs from afar as gifts,
And taking a little of her soul,
In the form of penned thoughts,
And music strummed from her guitar,
As a gift to the world beyond.

Thank you, Sonam, for this melodious (oh yea!! that's how lovely it is) poem... we are truly honored!!

This topic was close to my heart and was very fun to write about and create my mandala.

K McGee said...

Humm.. I'll have to write something new that fits the theme, but until then I've reposted an older poem tied to this week in history.

Thanks for the heads up on next weeks theme! I'll come better prepared.

Sorry if I "re-linked" an old piece. Poems about poetry is one of my favorite themes and I just ache to share some hehe

Kiera O'Brien said...

Why do I get this odd feeling I was lured into this week's potluck by some carefully chosen bait? I've got my eye on you, young lady! At any rate, it's good to be back at Jingle. Happy Monday!

Hey fellow wordsmiths! Finally got around to adding my two...or in this case 3 cents to the Potluck! I love being a part of this world. At least we can leave the thoughtless one behind!

A wonderful prompt. Now to the "Music of My People", brewed deep in the woods of Kenya. Enjoy.

James Rainsford said...

Have left it late to post this week, but am trying to catchup with many unfinished tasks. Hope the community enjoy my post. It is blessedly, a little more lighthearted than some of my recent poems.

K McGee said...

I finally submitted one that fits the theme. Inspirations muse arrived this morning.


Tigerbrite said...

Great prompt Ji. Would have loved to have a go at that but have been wrapped up in the Death card which has not come easy. Happy Pot Luck.
