The Poem Comes..

The heart
Feels,
Takes,
the baby’s smile.
Then
The poem comes..

The heart
Sees,
the two souls
enjoying,
Romancing
in the sky
Then
The poem comes..

The heart
Gets
the inner
feelings of you
Then
The poem comes..

The heart
Gets anger for
your inhumanity.
Then
The poem comes..

The heart
Try to understand you
In deep and deeper
Then
The poem comes..

The heart
Gets connected
Into the whole world
Then
The poem comes..

  1. First of all congrats for your beautiful blog. I have enjoyed the process of your painting and becoming an artist-writer because you are also a wonderful poet. I like “The poem comes…” because, even though it apparently looks very simple, behind that there are true and profound thoughts and feelings. The shortness of the stanzas having sometimes just one verb in the present tense is a great device to make the whole poem sound fresh and dynamic. I love the sudden break in the fourth stanza where the previous joyful and contemplative tone disappears and leads way to the storm:

    “The heart
    Gets anger for
    your inhumanity.”

    As I said, great work. Also, thank you very much for stopping by my blog.
