Playing with symbols

Playing with symbols.

Putting symbols on these sheets
In a lovely shiny verse
Filled right up with truths and feelings
Sometimes getting terse
Others growing soft like velvet
And only peace leaks out
Inspiration comes too soon
And throws it all about.

Oh what fun it is to write
On a clear sheet every day
Making patterns with ones words
In his own sweet way
Unique is he, as most must be
Each flower blooms alone
A flame to burn until it dies
A quantity unknown.

And as these words come bursting through
This energy that’s me
A piece of me comes pouring out
Some joy or misery
Or a little piece of mystery
Or song that might inspire
And set another’s flame to glow
And start another fire.

    Brilliant write, Peter. These lines - Unique is he, as most must be Each flower blooms alone A flame to burn until it dies A quantity unknown. - are so full of wisdom, and very inspiring..
