Too Deep/Poetry

Too Deep

In too deep,
and nearly consumed,
no  retreat and no clear path
of progress.

What to do, what to do?

‘Tis well I go enfolded in such delicate

encouraging my mind
to forget the endless flight
of freedom.

There is treasure within.

I see it,
smell it, taste it-divine!

More time, more time,
to linger in days sublime-
all else forgotten.

  1. I agree with you Dan. Cheryl, has the passion and experience that is so clearly visible in her poems. I have a question for you Cheryl, how much time do you take to write one poem? I know we normally don’t clock such things, but a wild guess would be sufficient for me.


    1. If you promise not to be mad at me, I will say my initial poem comes in about five minutes. It is like a tiny silken thread weaves itself up through my heart into my head and winds itself around my thoughts. Of course I write those down immediately and of course I usually make adjustments, change words and edit for better flow and balance as I read it over and over. By the tome I post with the photo, at least 30 minutes from start to finish. Most often the photo has inspired a thought which brings the poetry, so that part is easy. I once recently had an inspiration while at work and jotted my thoughts on a scrap of paper, for if I don’t they may flee from my brain and not return! Ha. In other words, my poetry is very spontaneous. I have much more difficulty trying to theme something. I don’t care for contrived work. The poetry I love to read need not rhyme, but rather speak to my soul and I feel it coming from someone else’s heart and soul.
