Poetry Submission

written by: Thomas Park

@mystified131

 

Somewhat as Vegas
Words rattling like dice
Metaphors, playing cards

This is my submission

Derived from "submit"
I bow my head, offer
Lines carefully chosen

Approval sought, vindication
Rush of pleasure, affirmation

Poems made alone in room
Perhaps exposed to crowd in time

Submitting poet pondered
Ancient play of thought
When branch of tree fell
In wood where none could hear

Was there sound?

That time was taken, Energy
To form particular notions
Penses, rhymes

I would prefer, if like a limb
Had fallen to the forest floor
You sensed the crack of wood
On wood, earth, pebble

Wanted more
