[Poetry] Unconvincing charade by Sofia Kioroglou
I am not prancing around
Pretending to be a reputable poetess
Pretensions not my cup of tea
The Muses and Mnemosyne
Sometimes defy my invocations
To come save me from the writer’s abyss
My inspiration, a stranded heron wading
through the mess to get to where it should
be going, has lost its compass.
Hear from the Poet:
I am a writer, a poet, a pilgrim, a missionary and a wife! I find writing to be a form of catharsis. My poems are imbued with deep empathy and begging for answers. Sometimes my lines are ovelaid with religious nuances only to provide a compass for my journey in life and jumping -off point for my inspiration. My poetry can be found online and in print.
