When I Rest At The Feet Of Poetry - A Villanelle

by Phoebe

When I rest at the feet of Poetry
Within that calm space I find peace
There’s no other place I want to be

She encourages my creativity
And gives my poetic side release
When I rest at the feet of Poetry

Sweet harmony surrounds me
Doubts and fears slowly cease
There’s no other place I want to be

I take each moment slowly
And drift into it with ease
When I rest at the feet of Poetry

No distractions come to me
I can write whatever I please
There’s no other place I want to be

Grateful I will always be
For those things this poet sees
When I rest at the feet of Poetry
There’s no other place I want to be

~Phoebe~

strangely the music i was listening to went along perfectly with your poem little kiwi.....but i wont tell you what song i was listening to...it would ruin the illusion - eating seaweed - captain ahab and the moby dick hound.

    Hmmm Paul, let me hazard a guess and say..rock music, and very loud, or whale's songs..Smile -Phoebe

      it was actually whales playing rock music. though it's hard for blue whales to do the chords to " stairway to heaven " on the guitar with there flippers ha ha.

    Well thank you Ali but really it was not an easy style to write - but we all need to start somewhere - my next one (if there's is one) will hopefully be better...Smile-Phoebe

    Thank you Gail, it's a beast of a style to be honest...but it really challenges one to think in structure...thanks Smile - Phoebe
