It’s time for the open link at d’Verse Poets. I have a pretty big collection of old books, and I found this one to be rather inspiring. I wonder in another 129 years, what will poets think of today’s poetry.
Gems of poetry speak to my heart,
telling the secret story of my soul-
Grandma’s pearls to guard purity,
a prim and proper ladylike couplet,
give way to peridot’s free verse.
Black onyx tiger’s eye masculine
energy overpowering strength
forces ruby fervency upon the
white iridescent blank page
of moonstone’s feminine core,
mingling in sapphire passions
beneath an old leather cover.
