' Contemplation'


In wee hours
I set to think
of something
to write about
nothing comes

Emptiness reign
darkness overcomes
till slumber dominates
suddenly an ember flickers
then the lighted portal opens

My soul possesses the key
of the infinite flow of thoughts
inspire the various hues of stimuli
that I as poet captors such moment
it enthuse the element for contemplation

    This often happens Marvin! At times no thought comes, then suddenly an ember flickers and the lighted portal opens! A sweet poem! (Report) Reply

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
