To tempt and stir the depths within, black shorless seas provoke the soul to venture in #poetry

To believe that poetry has moved beyond the literal, a fiction
 
To misapprehend the nature of the beast

For most the property of poetry is simply that it speaks 
In terms and songs and liminal verse, to the heart and truth

To so engage the mind  that flights of fancy or of scope 
– can be achieved that unread the mind alone would not attempt

To tempt and stir the depths within, black shorless seas provoke the soul to venture in

To every being a language known 
To every soul a verse unshown 
To every act an actor
