READING POETRY ON A RAINY DAY for contest

                                              READING POETRY ON A RAINY DAY


                                             On the page, the white declines,

                                            Love of phrase enlivens night--

                                             Images patrol my mind,

                                             Words become the key to sight.


                                             Vanished is my world by schedules set.

                                             Conquered by the Poet’s words--

                                             Persons vibrant this way met

                                             While my true life flies with wayward birds.


                                             Time and passion are contained

                                             Graced within the page in hand--

                                             Bathed in sun while garden rained--

                                             Wander I from sea to land.


                                            What more glorious can life be

                                            Astonished with the gift of flight--

                                           Transforms a bookworm lass like me--

                                           Sword in hand --   blood lust to fight?
