Wellspring -Poetic Bloomings

IMG_1857

If I swallowed

a dictionary

from each of

the countries

the languages

of this world

(and beyond)

could I

would I

ever express

the joy of this life

craft with words

pleasures so simple

as tea sipped from a china cup

as coffee cake, moist and rich

as sun warming my skin

as my soul unfurling in the lazy afternoon?

would all the dictionaries

in all the worlds

suffice?


 

Today, over at Poetic Bloomings, we are asked to find our inspiration from the poem ‘Peaceful Summer Day’ by Gary R Ferris, which you can read in today’s blog post.

I took my inspiration from the line ‘There are no brilliant words that I could ever say’. I hope you enjoy it! Please do head on over to Poetic Bloomings to immerse yourself in the poems you find there – and why not take part yourself?
