My Metaphors

My metaphors weep joy and woe,
living through moments of Thoreau-
Silent syllables speak in grace
where my muse I cannot replace.
My pure parchment I shall bestow.

Notions of love and letting go,
a voice of hope longing to grow.
My quill is ready to embrace-
My metaphors.

A secret place that you don’t know,
it’s in my soul with fire aglow.
This gift I have I shan’t disgrace,
now I wear a smile on my face. 
Seeds of inspiration I sow-
My metaphors.

I just love this and think Thoreau would too. He has long been my hero. A beautiful poem, almost biographical, if not totally so! Each line is exquisite. Poetry hugs ... CayCay
