Deaf To All But The Words Singing

Poetry composed in heart and
soul is metaphor-disposed in the
way it outreaches an unimpeachable
state of animate innocence, revealing
what the consciousness
merely conceals.

Poetry composed in words none-the-less,
words expressed with acute awareness
entranced in a sense-of-self which
communes with all Gods,
all states of matter known and
unknown – and lasts forever.

Poetry is connections made:
when emotion turns to heat, when
veins dilate in venous rhapsody, when
the eyes light in colours graced by all
shades, when chords resound in ears
deaf to all but the words singing.
