WORD PICTURES - POETRY AND ME
Speculative, the owl of Minerva,
fires up the brain of childhood.
Word pictures of war and death,
love and nature...and God.
Psalm twenty-three, Trees,
O Captain My Captain, and
Richard Cory on the top tier.
I begin to express my inner world,
the preponderance of imagination
and emotion spill from my inkwell.
I script as death takes hold -
a precious pet, uncles,
Into the throes of poetry,
stimulated by an online class, reading
Poe and Plath - dark and yet
My virtual pen like an EKG -
once in a while flatlines,
but then my heart restarts.
I’m so in love…
with mine, with yours, with ours -
intertwined revelations of us.
