Touching A Lonely Heart

A poem is born right here at home
No need to fly where I'm alone
I've often wished for wings that fly
To take a magic carpet ride
To places deep where phrases hide
So rich with wisdom, and insights known
Above the moon, where stars are keeping
Amazing words that form a poem

If closing eyes and knowing this
The wonder of poetic bliss
Are beneath my feet, beneath my stare
A poem resides most anywhere

The voice inside my head must share
My life, my friends, my family
Within my reach, are memories
Where lies a wealth, a poem or verse
To touch a few with heartfelt words

A poem unfolds ...one tiny rose
It starts new life, so tightly closed
But given life, it opens wide
And takes me on a carpet ride
I pray for words that will not hide
To take you too..........upon this ride
Above the moon, beyond the stars
To land upon a lonely heart
For Michael's "Boomerrang Contest": 1/27/13

    How can I begin to even say that this comes from heaven. Not many poems here impress me but when I see the pure gold that can come from a poets heart.or the gift of a wondering muse. I stop and pay my duely respect. Because that is a muse I can use. Great work.JOHN HENRY LOVING III

    P.s. one carpet ride is enough. You'll come up with something.

    The magi of writing (and reading) is that it takes you wherever you want to go. Carrie, I have missed your work so much. Tried to get your address for a Christmas card, but failed. As I tell everyone who asks, you are one of the finest writers on the Soup. Bless you, Carolyn
