Poetry Thursday 54 - Experimentation

It is important to experiment with styles and ideas because it allows you as a writer the freedom of expression to create. The reader can then have fun trying to interpret!


Inner and Outer

There is a part of me that none can see.
A public face one hopes is adequate.
Hidden away beneath the surface but free
Overt strength that conceals the delicate
The inner eye searches understanding
Outwardly all seems perfectly clear
Behind the curtain life is demanding
In front a delightful atmosphere
The subconscious spurs us into action
We employ a range of skills to perform
Then judge the level of satisfaction
Against the externally perceived norms

Inner life is the germ of our world
Outer life is the flower that’s unfurled

Dark Within

A pool of crude
deep as the oceans
Impenetrable
shiny surface
a cloying mass

Masks
what lies below
No hint of depth
shallow or deep
We make it and add
everyday
or not!

Bubbling under
Churning
Spewing
Cleverness or stupidity
depending on the prod
