The Wonder Of Leo Wright

I read the words of a man
And I wondered...

Of the life he led
And the things he said
And of what he might have said to me
If our two paths had crossed

How can such profoundness and genius
Live on in a single human being?
What a truly gifted man he must have been
What a privilege it would have been to know him

I read the words of a man
And I wondered...

If he were here today
Sitting in his scarlet chair
Would he still put pen to paper?
And mystify us with his words
Not knowing the great affect they have on those who love him most

And would he share his wisdom
With those who he knew would use it wisely?
Or would his secrets remain to be discovered in his cryptic words?

Words of truth and brilliance
Words of a legend

... ...I wonder.

    I feel this way about Charles Bukowski, my literary hero. Glad you shared yours!
