Sonnet I : Ink and nothing else

Freedom differs on how each men define it,
like the love of autumn or cold of winter.
Vast it may be but meaning is implicit,
so vast that no soul can ever hinder.

I define liberty as a pen and paper.
Mere it is , but my understanding is sure.
What is simple for you, to me strikes deeper.
Thin a  paper be , but it lasts to endure. 

The glory of ink is immeasurable,
for a tender soul of mine to comprehend.
Though age  has  numbers, I am an example,
of a generation's hope for we to ascend.

May the world be courageous to project art.
Like this sonnet , this is where I start.

    Dear Jim-words are so precious to me.And to be able to use them to convey concepts and emotions I count as a privilege.Especially to be able to reach and to teach others and to learn from and be inspired by them.I love the depth of understanding in these words.Thank you.This is special piece.I love it and will enjoy it repeatedly as a favourite. love June(sylvia)
