I know I like this Davy but I’m not sure I get it, maybe by reading it its purpose is fulfilled and so can sleep, I guess there’s nothing sadder and lonelier than an unread poem, mine are positively depressed hermits ! ha ha !

    I wouldn’t say that about your poetry Nigel. They certainly stop me from sleepwalking as they always leave something to think about. I think this is one of those quotes that has layered meaning and does give food for thought. Thanks for taking time to read and comment.

A sad but brief thought, Davy. A stunning discovery awaits the eye of the beholder.

For a poem to be sleepless it must surely be both restive and restless. In which case it is tormented with a struggle to create both mood and meaning. I think it is perhaps in this struggle that the sadness lies. But there are, as the other comments point out, those other interpretations of it being unread or perhaps misunderstood. Food for thought indeed, Davy.

    I agree Roland. It is one of those quotes that unfolds on itself and when you think you understand it, it changes direction. I think most poems are restless as they seem to remain unfinished. Thanks for your insightful thoughts.

A poem unfinished, incomplete, obsessed with reaching the pinnacle of perfection before its release could surely get very, very lonely. I could see this. Awww poor thing!

If the poet is just as sleepless as the poem, will this make the piece a little less lonely? I think the more our mind struggles with words, the more we discover. I don’t think a poem is entirely lonely when we have ourselves to turn these words into magic. πŸ™‚

    Very good points Maria. The poem has to have the same characteristics as the poet. I think poets are always restless in their pursuit of perfection so the poetry must follow suit. Thanks for taking time out to read and offer your insightful comments.

      And this pursuit, don’t you think, has opened more doors for new ideas, D? I remember re-writing a poem I once wrote that I ended up having three different pieces out of that poem alone. Haha.

      You’re most welcome, D.

      Maria, I sometimes write a poem in different forms to see how they flow. Like you say, it can produce different work and is good fun πŸ™‚

Love this, Davy!
Reading and writing poems have kept me company, so I like the thought that I can keep them company/less lonely. πŸ™‚
HUGS!!! πŸ™‚

Oh poor thing, this won’t do. It can come and join me for a hot co-co
and I will whisper it gently.

I know exactly how that feels because I get most of my website traffic from people doing Google searches. I doubt that will hold true for my poems, though. But still, you put so much effort into a piece, no matter what kind, and you have to take heart in the satisfaction that comes with your own efforts. It can take over a year for people to trickle in to read my “brilliant” work. I’m joking about the brilliant part, but surely some of you must feel that way too. Writing can be such an ecstatic experience, and you won’t to share it with others. Each time I hit publish, I say to myself, “What’s next?”.

    Good points you make here Laura. With poetry writing, once a poem is finished it is put away and may never see the light of day again. I have just found an old journal of my from over twenty five years ago with twenty poems in it. Although the poems will never make it public they are currently providing inspiration for new poetry. I also think the immediacy of blogging has something to do with writings limited lifespan. There is always the pressure to move on to new work.
