Flower Petal Count

Flower Petal Count

Karyn Indursky


Shall I count reasons poems are lovely

where the ideas are seeds to grow fresh plants

with opportunities flying like doves

dangling earrings of  imaginations across skies?


Shall I use my fingers or my toes to count

how many ways words express liberating freedom

singing from the hearts of true writers

where the drums of meters help voluminous emotions?


Shall I count my flowers to see thy petals

tell me how to love poetic license and use it

enchantingly across paper with quill ink personality

showing tales of Shakespeare's inspiration?


So long as thy day grows with white roses

thy cheeks will blush like reddened noses.

Dear Ms Poetic,  Your petals

Dear Ms Poetic, 

Your petals so fine, 

Their taste upon my lips,

Bring the essence of "divine",

I wonder of the beauty,

Your sweet mind does make,

The hunger for such divinity....

(I think I'll go have some chocolate cake!)


Absolutely luscious dear "real eyes". ♥♥


More more!! :-)




...and he asked her, "do you write poetry? Because I feel as if I am the ink that flows from your quill."

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "
