"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 !
