Counting On You

When ever the time comes
I guess it should mean a 
certain freedom; the kind we 
get from writing a poem, the
kind that flows from the instrument
instrumental peace, whatever it may be
It could be the winds that stirs the sea
maybe the sun that shines on you and me.

We hope to see each other there
blowing along the lines of the marble
with eyes like the owl; seeing in the dark
To release some kind of light.

I'm talking about poetry
and all it's unique forms
and how it balanced some piece
of mind, brought the morning
and all its warmth
Before a rugged door.

    Interesting write and yeah, it is a freedom. Freedom of expressing our souls, our minds and thoughts in constructive, eloquent ways that can actually really beguile a reader and inspire. Thanks for sharing and thank you for your kind comments on my latest. Have a nice evening yourself. Caroline.

    derrick, you have a marvelous way with imagery. I am so happy to have read this today! I am wondering if maybe you mixed up the piece/peace words. did you mean the standard meaning of "peace of mind" like a calmness in one's mind? It could be you meant a fragment of one's mind too, so it could actually work both ways with that one! thanks for commenting on my poem, I hope to read many more of your poems.LUv, andrea
