I read poetry regularly, and occasionally I find a poem that speaks to me.
More often, in an otherwise medium offering, I stop short in wonderment when I read the remarkably, brashly beautiful high-quality phrase or image that makes me say, as my fellow poetic truth seeker Mike likes to say, “I wish I’d written that!”
Here’s an example:
The "Whispers" poetry website offered “Summer Music” by David Austin, a brief paean to a morning bird whose “…happy chatter...has no winter in it…”
How simply lovely that is, a luscious insight, proof of the potential magic in ordinary but well-ordered words.
Thanks for that one, David.
Always good to taste the best bite of the apple.
