The poem is below.



This great beauty of what plays in my mind
where lies the imagining of imaginations
that dance around in my brain 
that sometimes make me feel I'm going insane
where thing are being writen while I sleep 
while I'm awake to new things 
where ideas ,hopefulness moves my 
heart to do what it loves
and that is to write out what I feel 
in a world of black and white 
where people don't act right 
in a world that is ancient cold 
where people stand around acting bold
I see in my dreams owls in high trees 
while others prowl 
Oh, the images and imaginations
take me to places I had never seen 
that only comes to me in dreams 
where stories are made 
where writing are being written
but hasn't yet reached paper 
where the eyes see nothing in life
 because it unreadable until I written 
in a world of imagining and wounder 
but my mind already has it written
where words are rising  from deep within
where my emotions play around 
with the vistions and imagining 
of my true imagination 
until they expose it to air 
to ink and paper for the world to read
what it is I see and bleed out in ink of me
I'm always thinking about what will I see next
these wounders and expectations 
impersonations of bewildering in my self 
where thousand of words move around
where sound play to a soft tone 
that is buried deep within my soul
where my spirit for life reaches out 
to find that magic word to make a rhyme
that will last a life time
where I write and remake and remade 
until I put it all on paper 
where imagining and words was not
made from some book but Ideas.

To hold it all in would be a travesty, Judy! Very expressive!
