At A Crossroads Poet, Hears That True Call dedicated, to my friend with appreciation

At A Crossroads Poet, Hears That True Call,
dedicated, to my friend with appreciation 
 
At a crossroads poet, finds waiting pen
beneath dust that hides wiles of evil men
ink then cast forth on an eager blank page
from heartfelt and pure soul of wizened sage.

At a crossroads truths, one can not deny
nor neglect reigning beauty of night skies
as stars twinkle and moonlight bright parades
through wafting breeze and all Nature hath made.

At a crossroads poet, hears that true call
music that inflames passions in us all
for such inspires deep love and gifted hands
with verse from far above, our earthly lands.

At a crossroads, where sincere life one lives.
Soul rests free within, writes sweet words to give.

Sonnet, ( How poetry oft inspires other poets )
(dedicated to Besma Riabi Dziri, inspired by
my reading of Besma's exquisite poem, titled
"At A Crossroads A Poet Is Born" )..........

Thank you my friend. I have always found the most inspiring and relevant poetry comes from real life experiences that a poet decides to share with others. As in the unselfish act of giving with the cherished hope that it may help in someway the reader.
