Tim Mitchell has been writing poetry since high school. He enjoys exploring them, the many forms, and writing them

The time grows absent while thoughts not run nor walk as a tea kettle slowly wakens silence.
The time grows absent while thoughts not run nor walk as a tea kettle slowly wakens silence. | Source

Heard not empty vessels filled full stillness,

Hues smile silent drops flood painter’s thirst,

Cricket’s laughter dwindles speaking not illness,

Listless soars higher light bubbles not verse first.


Afar breaks quiet whispers shares a smile,

Seen eloquent waters stirred together one,

Sealed eyes speak understanding not of I’ll,

Words lack reason glee full no need battle won.


Fairies dance, angels whisper, elves not laugh,

Winds nestle touch of breeze aloft shed scroll,

Comfort cradles lost fullness now less than half,

A companion nuzzles touch merriment of soul.


No land nor sea of need empty breathes are life,

Adventures no need of memory welcomed serenity,

Tones absent silent fingers strum merrily on fife,

No alas, need of ‘tis, nor next, only a cup’pa tea . . .


A companion of tranquil at times is solitude

      Thanks DDE!! I hope to add more poems, but hope to write articles for the soon to be New Niche Site Creative Writing & Quotes. I haven't figured out meaning for that with poetry. Will they include poems and what about Free Verse?

      Hello Shyron. I have to get used to checking the 'feed' today since I have begun slowly publishing again. Yes, I agree the video is eye opener with imagery and Loreena voice is amazing. Today, I look up the lyrics and pay attention to them maybe from more from the eye of a poet. Do you do that too? Thanks for stopping by and the encouragement too!!!
