Poetry Conceived

Sharing lovely poem by MK Vecchitto from the cafe.

Writing and Reflections

crow-2843316_1920

A curious power — finding magic

hiding between the thorn and the rose

with wounded words found

in rain-soaked cities and wide-open fields

between walls of glass that sparkle

before dawn smudges and distorts clear blue skies

the lonely poet wears a cloak meant for the malefactor

he lurks in the shadows waiting to steal beauty from the grotesque

restless thoughts gather in insipid pools as he walks

until the delicate framework in his mind becomes more

a pause to witness a lone crow squawking

as it harasses the mighty hawk flying too close

and in this enduring battle, the poet finds grace

while the crow safeguards her young and vanquishes the enemy

his mind turns, spins, contemplates

more

inspired, he wanders in a preternatural world

existing among the ordinary

poetry from pain, a peccadillo

a necessary part of magic

    For some reason I love that line ‘before dawn smudges and distorts clear blue skies’… Diane

      So do I, Diane. There is a lot said in that line. The entire piece is exceptional and I am pleased it came my way so I could share it.
