The posings of a poet.

Shaft


Spear head

Let your life reveal…

 

The moment of your birth
First sadness, first mirth
The legend of your walking
The beginning of your talking
Learning indifference from love
Deciding who watches from above
First attempt to stand alone
Falling faster than a stone
Rising up with help and desire
Choosing who sits at your fire
Feasting, starving, wealthy, poor
Learning what a soul is for
Stating “I am” into the night
Wondering if you were ever right
All are but the wood behind
The spearhead, please be so kind
To pierce with purpose sinew and joint
And make your life reveal your point

    Very wonderful piece.

    • Thought I might hear from you on that second to last line. 😉 Glad you enjoyed it.

        A most peculiar thing…that you know me well enough to know what I’ll bite on…lol. I did truly miss your voice those many months. Clever and sharp as they come dear Dan….a prized writer indeed.
        Hope you and yours are well.

  2. And a prized (and “versed”) friend are you Lady! Be blessed.

  3. Nice, Dan, esp: ‘Learning indifference from love…’ most thought-provoking
