Poetry Pillar

When Light needed a body to behold, and color to kiss,
as Darkness dreamnt to die in the dawn of depth,
when Soul lustered to lust for learning, and being learned,
as blood bespoke to bones for building a star of flesh,
when Time needed the umbrage of it's ubiquity to be understood,
the moment texture tempted touch to tease with a thousand sensations,
when laws of love sought a language to express the extremes of it's lips,
as romance rampaged through the ravishings of famished hearts,
when the seduction of sorrow made heros of loving men and women,

When Justice appealed to the instincts of intent for inscriptions of innocence,
as bravery found battle in basic questions of survival and conquest,
when war demanded a metaphor in the terror of it's diligent destruction,
as Faith found resolve in seconds small along with giant gestures,
Death singing melancholoy for sympathy and Life haughty upon it's horizon,
when Angels chose to wear albatross of gold to feel the rue of rogues,
as the most perfect woman ambushed the ideals of rumored beauty,
when God wanted imagination to create immaculate reality
Poetry began, born in the instant of forever Art,
because, the only promise of a Poet, is Passion -

Dedicated to Poetry...J.A.B.

Poetry is the most powerful force in my life, for it is my Love, and my Love is my life Verliza. My favorite line in this Dedication is, "As the most perfect woman ambushed the ideals of rumored beauty..." Your name is uniquely pretty Verliza...J.A.B.

I'm not sure quite what to say, Justin, other than I'm speechless. Your dedication to poetry is unbelievably vast. Immaculate reality? Well how true is that - as I step inside this world of yours that you so adequately embellished with rhyme and metaphor from the deepest parts of you. Another favorite...

Poetry has made my life worth living, I have made Poetry with my soul, together Poetry and I build brave beauty and ride into immortality. Its incredible to me that I've been composing Poetry for 17 years and yet I just now devoted a work to it's magic and purpose Timothy. I supposed this was the right time to perfectly express what Poetry and I have done for eachother. J.A.B.

Love the line with metaphor...:) you incorporating alliteration makes it more powerful... It sets the rhythm plus you are using a root word then later making it more, it adds to the poem's beat and intensity..:) as always lovely write!!!

This is amazing, Justin. Wow- such depth... all compacted in one beautiful piece dedicated to Poetry. What more could, I the reader ask for? It is surely food for thought- tips for action-pushes for passion. Heavily impressed with this one... on all grounds... wow.... okay... let me see this..read this again.... okay... : ) "You never fail to awe me with your words! the moment texture tempted touch to tease with a thousand sensations," - that is delicious stuff! Ah this is just gorgeous.

Your passion and observation excite me Casarah. I revere alliteration, it is a technique that comes naturally to me. Alliteration is used to support the meaning of each line, and the meaning of the poem with a cadence that transmits a magic to the heart. Thank you Casarah! J.A.B.
