"Poetry is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings: it takes its origin from emotion recollected in tranquility."
--William Wordsworth

BREWING WORDS
They brew in cauldrons; eye of newt and ear of bats,
Smoldering breath of flying dragon and mermaid's tears,
Colours of sunset rise in steam of ladles stirred,
And diaphanous patterns of spider's dreams spook forth

Such is the concoction of voiceless words echoed

Like psalms from a weeping prophet's beard long told
To lament a wicked dread of worlds, its sweetness
Long forgotten in heaving maidens breast, behest of love.
The angst of a poet's mind where everything already exist.

  1. Yes, it's witchy, and yes, everything already exists. I said yes all the way through this daring poem! (Awful about the dusting T&T is getting. I hope you're able to breathe safely.)

  2. Well even if it didn'tr exist in the poet's mind he would create it. What fascinating music to go with this.
