For the heart roars with poetry when it hits a turning point… ~ mtg 

by Marites Avisado-Responte

The unrehearsed prayer

 muttered by the heart

that forms the words 
and the mouth

that makes it heard

The burning lightning strikes at a distant horizon

sparks the deserted way…

Its neon glow shoots the stars up

The howling wind kisses

The snow-draped meadows

Where the butterfly pauses and listens

The sluggish dew gracefully slips

along the ribs of a leaf

stops at its tip, clinging

tempting to drop…

The migrant bird perching

the bare tree, searching

for pair tweeting and singing …

The snowflakes tenderly falls

along the weathered quay

where waves are tamed and free

The listless swaying

of the pine leaves stirs

the spiritless white morn

in the snowy moor

The wishing gush of the streams

chants the tenderest lullaby amidst

the most challenging trek and trail

The brave moon in December

gracefully shows up its splendor

against the web of clouds

and unabated mists  …

The slumber is perfected beneath

the cozy comforter where sighs

of weariness are forgotten

in its heavenly hug…

If silence is broken by my own chatter

all alone I am left not appreciating

the noiseless art and beauty that

tap my noisy heart…

  1. Hi this is marites. You mean particularly on poetry? There are lots of websites, such as, and where you can actually sign up and be a member of the group. These sites sponsor poetry contests and members are enjoined to participate on some discussions that would build up and enrich more knowledge in creating poems. WordPress,too, offers opportunity for you, by exposing your literary works to legit bloggers who are poets and writers in their own right. Thanks.


  2. Very good blog you have here but I was wondering if you knew
    of any discussion boards that cover the same topics talked
    about here? I’d really like to be a part of online community
    where I can get responses from other experienced people that share the same interest.
    If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Thanks!
