We Exist

How we recognize
Poets by their poetry …
Metaphoric malaise
Swirls of subtle syntax
I tell all without admitting any
I reveal me
In tones of enjambment
Highlighted silhouette
Or I just shout it boldly
Because I can
I am a poet just like you



dversepoetspub.com open link today. Any poem, any form. I realize how I am knowing many of you. I go to read and say, ah, I expected this because as different as one poem be from another, you are always there.

About Mary (tqhousecat)

I am a wife and a mother of two grown children. I love Jesus and sharing my faith through written words. I currently have a poetry blog and also write on medium.com. My main focus is hope in Christ. I only wish that whoever reads this will be blessed, inspired and occasionally amused.

    …or I just shout it boldly! 🙂
    LOVE it! Sometimes we write with “hidden meanings” or of serious things…and then other times I just simply write what I’d call a “ditty”! 🙂 However the mood strikes me…….poetry could be the equivalent of one of those 1970 mood rings! 🙂
