Imagination is the river

that guides the quill.

Dreams the sailing ship

that unleashes the voyage

through the pages of a poets mind.

.

 

To write is to find

the meaning of love.

Where beauty opens the gate,

to a never ending yellow brick road

Of human emotion.

For that is what we seek.

.

 

The pen can create gods

and mortal frailty.

Sunshine is the span of life,

darkness is forever

and within these letters

we find immortality.

.

 

Beauty is found in pain

hope is an emerald sea,

envy comes from Oscar’s words

and belief becomes a prejudice.

The pen will drown your epitaph

for the Cyclops knows his destiny

.

 

Words can be a jigsaw of fears,

Or a rose sculptured in the heart.

All belong to confession,

trapped in the confetti of poems

which hide behind a harlequin mask

though a poets heart,

is for all to see
