What is Poetry?

What is poetry if not a secret affair
between the poet and his thoughts?
Kept from this world, safe,
hidden behind beautifully painted words,
In secret they meet each day,
but, seldom do they talk
For what meaning do words hold,
for two souls, so intimately in love?

An excerpt from one of my poems from an anthology- Enchanted Verses,  that me and a group of my friends are trying to get published. This is a first for all of us. Hope it turns out good.

“From the ashes a fire shall be woken
a light from the shadows shall spring
renewed shall be the blade that was broken
the crownless again shall be king.”

So, rise ‘o mighty warrior
from the slumber of self-exile
the race of humanity cries out
for the savior of their kind

The past has been corrupt
and the present is unsure
the future seems forsaken
for the righteous and pure

The ghost of war haunts you
in the silence of the night
the horrors of your past
seem immortally, ignite

So, let love and friendship
forever enlighten your heart
guide you in this journey
through the treacherous path.

The forces of evil gather
in the yard of mount doom
the mountain breathes fire
spreads distress and gloom

Long have they lived in
the shadow of the eye
let this be the day when the
fallen shall rise

The final steps shall not be easy
for the eye is vigil
lidless, afire
fixed on the ring.

In the midst of chaos
there is still a glimmer of light
in the hands of the hobbit
lies the destiny of all mankind.

So, they battle for the last time
give the hobbit his chance
to cast the ring in fire
and end it where it all began.

Let this be known as the day
the great battle was fought
in the face of certain death
the king was reborn.

From the ashes the fire has woken
from the shadows the light has sprung
carrying the blade of the father
the fallen warrior has returned
