Best Elliott Bowe The Drunken Poet Poems

+ Fav Poet


The wind tells a story we can not understand. 
We know the number of many but not the grains of sand.
Nature is so similar to the creation of man.
Only if we can be as peaceful and humble as they can.
This poem is small but very little will understand.
Except for the man who contemplates the nature of the land.

    Hi Elliot, where have you been?? Missing your young persona here on the soup. Hold up, let me get back to your poem. I think your opening line is a beautiful picture, in which reminds me of all the colors the wind can paint and we can't see. A true absent feeling to he who takes more than one can grant... enjoyed your poem..pd
