Poem World

Who wrote
the poem of this world
Is it freeform
Or some unknown form
For all things emerge
from letters of imagination..
For it is hard to scan its meaning
for within it otherworldly lines
has as many meanings as rainstorms
sprouts stars and many unnamed things.

What strange metaphors arise
in the captivating mysterious
lands of sound and symbol.
What astounding word creatures
flow beyond the sky of periods
beyond the gleaming poem…

Beyond the comprehension
Of our self reflected reading
Nouns and verbs mirrors within mirrors.
My hope is that i shall keep hidden
Under the cloak of my simple understanding
How the buttons of my mind seem
to spill off my shirt,
and my wings of trust
shall remain unfurled within my soul
like ghostly dragonflies…

i shall hold my trembling questions
in blissful forgetfulness
until the final stanza comes
And bend my lips into a smile
For the world
is just a poem within a poem.
