The Spirit of a Poet

100_1493

The spirit of a poet never lets go of the flame

shaping, guiding, directing the surge

the intensity, into our hearts,

into our pens, confident.

        

And when we are diminished

a spark decreasing we read,

or seek an ocean

to build ourselves

back up again.

      

The spirit of a poet – alive.

Peace and blessings to everyone.
