I Am..(Tagged by raul, now i'm tagging Elaine george).

I’m a young boy A single mother’s son I’m a young beach beaten by a tsunami Sent by an undersea earthquake delivering ripples of death Carrying my mother and hers out to sea Ravaged sands asking the sunset to reveal the secrets of the sunrise I’m a father to a wonderful child A beautiful wife’s husband I’m the love in each rain drop of a gentle rain Nurturing arid hearts with the moisture of my words Watering seeds of the future with hope The catalyst for the magic of spring I’m a teacher A Painter I’m the strike of a snake My fang: a pen’s nib full of black venom Poisoning compressed cellulose pulp; The anti-venom: beautiful words Administered through the ink gracing the surface A student of verse ~ I am a poet ~ ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ I was tagged by raul to write a poem that ends with "I am a poet" now I'm tagging Elaine George

    I just had to drop in and read this poem about Abe...my friend in Oklahoma that I haven't forgotten. I remember when you wrote this long ago...and makes me know how I miss the old Soupers and friendships. I hope you and your family are doing well, Abe...I often think of your Kaleb when I see my grandson growing taller than me soon. I'm sure Kaleb has sprouted too! Hard to believe where the years go. Just wanted to say hello...hope you find time to write now and then. Best wishes, Abe!-Carrie

    Dear Abe, Sorry for taking so long to respond I have been away from the soup too long. I had only intended to be gone for 2 weeks to complete some home renovations, but fell ill - what I thought was a flu bug tuned out to be Gall stones and I am having my Gall Bladder removed on March 29th. In the meantime, you have inspired me and I will write my poem and post it today. Thank you my friend. Love, Lainie
