From Those Fields Afar, Where Imagination Shines

From Those Fields Afar, Where Imagination Shines From dreams of great giants slain he woke a poet with mighty pen spoke some days ink running wicked black others days on romantic track, words slung as Byron, Shelly, Keats with not a whisper of defeats bathing lights of Homeric shine even hints of glory divine With hope, truth and delicious words painting scenes of pairing lovebirds of dawn's soft gasps, its awing moans or shock of finding, bleach white bones Poet, dear composer of verse- addicted to his own sweet curse! Robert J. Lindley, 2-28-2020 Sonnet, ( A treatise on gifting heart's truth unto others ) Note: Shall you ink gifted words today presenting to those that may need as savior showing hope's true way to avoid lives of wicked greeds As a guide, walking marking course through darken world, its gifted pains from evil, set soul to divorce and in life seek what good remains.
