Here at Poetic Parfait we like it when we have guests. We are happy to welcome to the table author Kristine Millar.
I recently met Kristine online (on the business network LinkedIn) and she was excited to participate here as a guest blogger. Bring it on!
Please show love for Kristine, who tells me she has written poetry since age 17. She explains that she uses her poetry as therapy, a method I think many writers do. I know I join her in that sentiment!
Her poem More Than Sound has parallels to music, energy, love, and (yes) silence.
More Than Sound
The power and the pleasure beats and plucks on every string.
Just a genius inventor, moulding tunes with which to sing.
His aching armour clashes, gives birth to every thought;
and with purpose it surrenders any mood that you had sought.
It looks for its expression through a body and a mind,
and finds me with impression leaving all my cares behind.
The energy, possession, through every muscle, every twist;
moves all throughout existence in this momentary bliss.
He convinces you of heaven through is fervour and his flair;
now a sentimental strummer innocent and unaware.
Brooding notes in battle with their merchant of remorse,
takes you high on raw emotion but once again will change its course.
In a boxing ring of passion, you and he are toe to toe;
and in his cabled fury, deals a final dashing blow.
Then silence enters suddenly, resonating the profound;
what supremacy and brilliance bringing so much more than sound.
