As ancient rains wash over me.....
I would die, this I am sure...... 
if not for the light of poetry.....

    Paper and pen, again and again. Until we're out of ink. I might not die if not for these. But I don't really want to think. Peace. :)

    A relief in the writing is it not? Many of us feel the same way. Seems there are few other ways to express what our emotions say.

    You are a lovely person with beautiful thoughts to share. I will be thinking about this little poem which says so much from this day on. In my dream, by the way, I sort of had the feeling I may have been looking at myself as a child or one of my own children. I am not sure. I wrestle with the challenge of owning things and the toll it takes on the beauty and simplicity that is such a noble part of life. Real riches are all internal and we are all somewhat impoverished in part. Later!

    I like the concept of "ancient rains" dear Debbie. First, thank you for your comment. I am always very grateful for your "visits". You have a lot of appeal, and your company is very welcome. You have a way of making me feel appreciated. Now back to "ancient rains". I am almost sure these are the items that flood our brains. So for us (if I may be so bold), poetry is our therapy. Freud had a comment about poets--something to the effect that poets know things before anyone else.
