Letter To A Poet: A Medley of Cinquains

nudging

me in my dreams,

rapier of your words,

penetrating deep, would not let

me sleep,

.

the sounds

of your verses,

playing a symphony

in cavern of my ears, won’t let

me sleep,

.

cadence

and treasured rhymes

make me smile at odd times,

entrancing my soul, would not let

me sleep,

.

your voice

that I could hear

in the deep crevices

welled up in my heart, would not let

me sleep,

.

 thy love

you are pouring

in the fragrant garland

that enfolds your poem, won’t let

me sleep,

.

you are

an artist who

spots a new vivid world

in normal surroundings, please let

me sleep,

.

aura

of creations,

that which resides in you

breaches my every shield, won’t let

me sleep,

.

open

my weak eyelids

in search of you so as

to read you within, giving up

my sleep,

.

letter

to my kindred

who nurses a poem

like a small child who does not let

them sleep,

.

no need

of rest when we

can stay awake whole night

etching ourselves in words, letting

off sleep

.

* First of all, this is a medley of Cinquains which I have used to create an Epistolary Poem. It was quite a fun task.

** I am submitting the link for dVerse Poetics where we have been called to write a letter through a poem.

  1. haha…love the middle part where you say please let me sleep…and the etching the words all night…i guess even poets, like lovers, need their sleep at some point though lest it consume us and leave nothing for tomorrow…this was fun…its cool when one grabs you so that you dont want to miss a moment….

    • You got it. I was waiting for some one to see these words as I wrote them. Perfect depiction of what I was trying to do through this creation…. I wasn’t writing myself. I was responding to the words, verses, cadence, rhymes of the poet’s creation, which were not allowing me to sleep and finally I rose up and read him.
