To Pen A Poem

Written by: Michael Rice

To pen a poem is to sing a song.
words take flight and soar
carrying aloft, enchanting thoughts
to soothe the weary soul.

Transporting others -
from their troubles
shifting gloom, 
dark clouds away

To echo in their mind
Nature's beauty, 
simple pleasures 
there to find

A bird in flight
trees whispering
fireflies dancing in the dark
the beating of one's own heart.
