Collage – Falling Down” by Dale Innis & Karima Hoisan

With a Title Even

That’s the spot…the right spot the music hits
when it’s meant to be nothing else, but a poem.

Not sure if it’s the way or how it makes me sway
but my mind starts to go away with the very first bars.

The words now have nowhere to hide
so they tumble down the stairs into poetry…

And when I put it on a loop, it holds me captive;
will absolutely not let me go until this poem is born.

Glorious possession, I am the happy victim scribbling
lost in the music, no longer music but more like a trance…

And when I’m back on the shoreline of the consciousness sea
There is a poem, with a title even, still wet and fresh… signed by me.

    • Awww thank you my friend. I know you have your own magical way to get to that place, because your poetry flows so naturally like on a self aware river it paints all you want to say. I still find the art of poetry especially so intriguing how we actually write it! Thank you Naveen for your thoughts on this one 🌹
