The efficacy of poetry.

Listen to poem:
Ethereal harpist my soul you caress infusing my tune with a sweet happiness. Gently you pluck at the strings of my heart giving my song a new meaningful part. I seek you in darkness beyond what is real and cling to the ways your soft touch makes me feel. I hold to you tightly and wait for the night where fantasy reigns over all that is right. I dream of the comfortable warmth of your arms enchanted by trinkets of heartwarming charms. Words on a page cutting right to my soul filling my emptiness making me whole. Each of your words like a soft gentle kiss remind me of life's simple pleasures I miss In such sweet surrender with you I could live for you know not to take till I'm begging to give. Ethereal harpist caressing my soul playing my heart to the measure of whole A lifetime of emptiness left for to deem to wake up and find you are only a dream. -Jeannie Minor

Yes indeed: Thee intangible movers...and interconnectedness of it all! The master puppeteer who pulls on the invisible strings. What prompts us to sense something that is beyond words...Who knows? But perhaps that is why we are poets: Eternally damned to grasp in futile hopelessness at the inextricable...whilst trying desperately to fashion the words! My very best regards, Jeannie! :) john

Thank you, John. It was an attempt to express how and what moves me in the hopes that someone might connect. Questions for which we don't always get the answers to when we bear our souls to the great cyber void.
