Note:

To keep with my goal, my mission to write 
to remain positive by way of my composing
positive, uplifting poetry - perhaps even
by creating one new poem every three days
I rose this morn at 4 am, having these first
few verses remembered from a dream last night,
I sat and composed this new and heartfelt piece.
With hope that it inspires others and may be a 
healing gift when they too may ever need it.
God bless...

Now Is The Time To Hunker Down And Write Now is the time to hunker down and write heal wounded heart, defeating dark of night allow ink's flow, imaginative breath, to stop tragic thinking of loss and death weave poetic art, feel powerful joy pray true, against dark's power to destroy. Now is the time to hunker down and pen words that curse sad fate of women and men allow heart its deepest of reliefs, find again, truth, light of divine beliefs soak paper in expressive ink, gift light to counter evil world's usual blight. Now is the time to hunker down and tell of soul and mind's power to dark dispel allow faith its powers and its just dues, let new born poetry, wash away blues with true honor, poetic art enhance enjoy life and set eager pen to dance. Now is the time to hunker down and see firm and true, that love and kindness are key allow eyes again, love's power behold, refuse to believe world's many lies told kneel each magnificent new morn to pray that love, mercy, and divine hope holds sway. Now is the time to hunker down and write heal wounded heart, defeating dark of night allow ink flow, imaginative breath, to stop tragic thinking of loss and death weave poetic art, feel powerful joy pray true, against dark's power to destroy.

"find again, truth, light of divine beliefs soak paper in expressive ink, gift light", so true, it is time to write. Getting it all out of the system and down on paper makes a lot of difference. Well penned thoughts.

Thank you my friend. One must seek relief and find a place of calm. For some of us composing poetry is that healing balm. And yes, even tho' oft times we may curse it, it is indeed more oft than not, a true blessing... God bless....

Thank you my friend. This Art that we so diligently and happily pursue gives us back as we attempt to give to this world and others. Thus we are then doubly blessed and are also perhaps to ever attempt to better ourselves and understand life's truth and love's power are the keys to happiness.. God bless..

Thank you my dear friend. So nice for me to now have my reply function to work properly again. I am no computer guy. Another fine poet gave me advice on how to try to restore that function as it was lost for a few days. Thanks and God bless...
