NAMESAKE

(Dedication: For Dave Wood) Do follow feel, do simple write; Align your flow, align your say; Voice lines that heal, voice verse that cite; Echo fond glow, echo fond stay. Watch feelings surge, watch intent spur; Opt for plain smile, opt for clear poise; Options emerge, options recur; Deed springs fine style, deed hurls fond voice. Passion greets choice, passion meets peer; Offer to cast, offer to soar; Endow your voice, endow your cheer; Trust first and last, trust tact and oar. Leon Enriquez 09 mar 2014 Singapore

Dear Line Gauthier: Glad that this poem delighted you. It's been some time since I wrote this piece for our PoetrySoup friend Dave Wood who also went by his pseudonym "Lyric Man". Sadly, for reasons I do not know, he is no longer active at the PoetrySoup community. He was a good friend to all here. I miss his proactive presence. God bless him. Thank you dear Line for your kind words about this poem. All my best wishes from Singapore to you in Canada. Leon

God helped you send comment to me I surely am so glad to read and see And always enjoy and appreciate God's love lasts forever and is never late. Outside peoples fight and will seethe In God's great fresh air I still breathe To live His life which around is abundant Without Him all things are redundant. Thanks for your great response to my poem. Now will have to read some of your poems. Interesting. my characters to type in are PWR. Jim Horn

Dear Dave: So glad that you like this work. I wrote after you asked me if there is a methodology to my way of composing. In short, I have for many years practiced a technique of thinking in 4-syllable phrases. This way, I can shape and craft lines with ease. I think in simple words and create a simple mosaic. That way, the craft of poetry becomes easy. I write every day. I have tons of stuff which I seldom use. I write new stuff instead. Sure, I can explain this piece in a separate e-mail. Just send me a private note with your e-mail and I will reply. OK? Thanks. Leon
