My Passion

I know that I shall always see
more beauty in my words than thee.
I know that I can't concentrate, 
upon the garden, but on the gate.
To open wide this holy door,
that others seem to think a bore;
and capture every line and verse,
within the space that I immerse.
Poetic verse is my caffeine,
prepared with leaves of nicotine.
Poems I think we should suppose,
have been around longer than prose.
Word surge, in mindless prying,
while in my bed I am trying,
to catch a quick few winks of sleep.
Waking up to hopefully reap,
words, a line, a poetic treat,
metered, measured in rhythmic beat.

    You are a gifted writer, Bill. This piece is terrific. I've been there, my friend...and still happy. Ruben.

    There is so much more to life than we actually "see" and when we do make a discovery, our pens move to verse. This delightful poem is "a poetic treat, metered, measured in rhythmic beat." But never stop exploring. See the garden, not just the gate, and the inspiration will overwhelm you. Awesome write, Bill, and like you, I get much of my inspiration in an alpha state just as I am preparing to sleep. Great work! Love, Carolyn
