"To be a writer remote and alone is to enter a portal into another realm." Quote - by Constance My hands extensions of my soul, deep thoughts into the long past stroll; my pen drips of sorrow and blood, inspired by the great poets ole ! Some memories buried in mud, others sweet as a flower bud; the long past held on fragile strings, once I start words fall in a flood ! Always, always the long dead clings, oft' I pen- 'til a dawn bird sings; I get lost in nature's beauty, closing my eyes to see bird wings ! I am lost in bird songs fluty, as I search for words dark sooty; penning poems is who I am, writing- is a poets duty ! oh, this life comes with no program, but, anything else is a sham; my words can get quite pointed strong, though, in truth- I am quite a lamb ! ______________________ May 12, 2022 Poetry/Rubaiyat/The Writer Copyright Protected, ID 05-1455-186-12 All Rights Reserved, 2022, Constance La France Written for the Standard contest, Rubaiyat sponsor, Sotto Poet, Judged 06/13/2022 First Place

I've just found this among other Rubaiyat poems, and I read it twice to further enjoy the depth of its pain. So delicately expressed, despite the depth of your emotions.
