Best SKAT A Poems

+ Fav Poet



I found the fountain of youth
When I stumbled across the forbidden garden
Right smack in the middle,
Was what I thought to be a wishing well
I tossed in a quarter!
Looking down with a puzzled face
I peeked to see where it fell
I leaned over and that's when I saw my vanity
It was always there waiting for me
The reflection in the water was my face
In wonder, I asked what this vision could be?
With one drop on my taste buds
I knew I found the one true key
The most beautiful thing that can set one free
I reached in to touch the poetry inside me

    Hi SKAT. A beautiful write on discovering one's talent as well as acceptance of one's weakness. This is very good! Kim

    Skat A. I enjoyed this poem. It's great to discover one's gift and purpose while we are still young. Some live a life time never knowing why they are here. "I tossed in a quarter": This says to me that we need to make some kind of investment, and also some kind of investigation to discover the purpose "inside of us". Good work. Curtis.

    Wow. Short but powerful and descriptive of this forbidden garden. This kinda speaks volume in terms of bio/self and all. Good writting. Cheers!

    I too love this poem and the sense of finding something deep inside that can heal our 'woundedness'.

    Hello, Skat, I just finished writing to you after your warm welcome to me and knew I had to check out your poems. I found this one that is fantastic! An so true. We can touch the poetry button inside us and travel with the poem wherever it takes us. Don't you just love those "Aha! moments of sudden realization. God is in them!
