This Is For The Poet Destroyer A - Also Known As Linda

you carve your words precisely 
like a master does a flawless diamond
infuse your images on the head of a pin
not a letter wasted 

you who
speaks from deeper within 
with every new write

never one or one hundred reads suffices
each new recite reveals something new
grabs the readers heart 
and we the better for it

you are the poet writes 
like the brush of Van Gogh 
his emotions vibrant in every stroke
every painting a work of genius

in your poetry 
we find that pearl
hidden too deep for the diver 
now opened and revealed 
blinded by its light we see
what was once previously 

like the gentle prophet 
you sew and lay a carpet
that sensitizes us 
from the very bottom of our awareness 
to the peak of our understanding 

it is LOVE that enshrines your words
the fabled unicorn 
the fortunate 
that by your cause 
our childhood dreams 
DO exist

    This write, and the spirit behind this write, and all others written by people with hearts like the one who wrote this, makes Soup worthy of the time spent here. Would have wanted to comment first but deemed it best to give Linda the first dibs. :-) Hope you are keeping well. Blessings and hugs!

    :):):)You know me so well Armand, and just to think. I was having doubts about this site once again. As a poet, I can not offer as much as others. Just a smile here and there. I stopped searching long ago for those with no sour attached melody. Then you proved me wrong, I found your kind heart on this site. I don't know you, but I know your heart and words. You are someone special. I know MANY love you on here. I'm sorry, I BAKED THE CAKE, then stop eating it the day, I found out, I was MORE than I pretend to be. Armand, as a friend, you stole a moment from my heart. The day you showed me, I can be myself around you on the soup. You remind me, THAT IN ME, lives a childhood, that has no stop. I guess dreams are not for rookies. Sending hugs, You know me, the T A G S are up. But, if you ever want to go poem hoping I'm up for it. LOL. Always ~ A True Fan ~
