When all around is darkness
Who provides the sun
When everyone is serious
Who is poking fun
When pollution clouds the bright blue sky
Who brings clarity
Who tries to bring some common sense
To mass insanity
When people kill for a belief 
Who is pointing fingers
When bullies push their weight around
Who is the first gunslinger
Who sees the heavenly beauty
In Mother Nature's charm
When the house of cards goes up in flames
Who sounds the fire alarm
When depression comes and pulls you in
Who writes you words of comfort
When they can't think of rhyming words
Who makes up words like bumfort
Who puts their feelings into words
With sonnets from the heart
Who describes a garbage dump
With a color chart
Whose imagination
Can jump from sea to star
Or describe the pungent odor
Of their grandpa's stale cigar
What people share a common bond
Make pictures out of words
It's a talent that we happily share
Let every voice be heard
As wordsmiths we are special
Cause we feel what others see
Let's weave our threads together
Show the world our tapestry

Poet Shall you amass a wealth of descriptive locutions to plant in your grey matter garden? Will you give birth to baby eloquence and listen to the wailing vibrations of linguistic infancy while assisting in magnificent growth? Shall you offer your undying love and attention to the graphic sounds of poetic pitter patter? Will you mix and arrange a flavorful and appetizing stew in the cooking pot of your mouth after the fruits of your labor mature in artistic detail?

Thank you for making me laugh. You make my humble offerings, somehow seem inadequate. I appreciate your kindness.

Shall you serve hearty ambrosia dishes to those hungry for a meaningful assortment of words? Will you feed their covetous and ravenous souls with fully developed expression? And by satisfying others poet, Shall you satiate yourself?

Awesome write, Daniel ... I believe we are but tools for the Creative Conscience or God or Nature or whatever we consider our higher power, and but a conduit for that energy. That "gift" helps us to put into words what others feel but can't put into words, and you have captured that so wonderfully here, my friend! This will have to be another favorite, (and hopefully move it up on the all-time list, ha!). Keep up the great work - I love your stuff! :-)

Daniel, A great dedication and a wonderful poem for Tim Smith. Tim's a gifted and very talented poet for sure. Your verses are spot-on, and cover a multiplicity of many aspects of what poets do when they contemplate thoughts and emotions and actively reflect them to their fellow man. Outstanding!! A Big Seven too!! Best Always, Gary
