where my poetry comes from

loss
lingers
far too long
words weep and moan
my fire it burns and the ink is my smoke

gain
glory 
and honor
among my peers
with my heart pierced i wrote through the tears

    All of the emotion that builds inside us pours so well onto paper, John. You have had your share of loss recently, but your poetry always speaks to me. I'd like to see you win this contest. Check spelling of "pierced." Beautifully written! Love, carolyn

    Sorrow does give us thoughts that need to be penned..I know that you are still missing your soul mate..I will allow you to trim the brown from your bread..I hope that you can do that for yourself..My mother would trim the edge off the bread for me when I was a small child but then I learned to love the brown edges..Life gives us the brown dried out ends sometimes then we have to decide what are we going to do with this experience..Sara

    Perhaps John I was to braggy. But then what do I know? I'm a rock. Good luck in the contest with your very good poem. Love, Joyce

    Sometimes it takes something dramatic in our lives for us to write and I find when the heart is aching words easily come with the depth of emotions we are feeling. Must be from the heart. love phyl

    this is good, and I mean really good, it seems a slightly different tone and direction for you, a direction I like very much...your opening words remind me of the second line in the alliteration part of my poem 'three-in-one', I can hear my own voice when reading this, it's eerie:-) anyway, this is without doubt one of the strongest entries I've seen, 7 plus
