    Skills that open up portals
    Of one’s imagination
    And creativity
    As
    We struggle to
    Paint panoramic pictures
    With words
    To correspond
    With poetic flows
    And vibes
    That demand
    To be scribed

    I watch scenes unfold
    Enforcer of the poetic realm
    Making sure that
    No flow is corrupted
    Yet willing to take by the hand and lead
    Those who will be lead
    To a place where
    They can be fed
    And nourished
    With lyrical feastings
    Satisfying appetites
    Until the next course

    Like waterfalls
    Verbs fall from my mental
    After journeying from
    The heart
    Brash I may be
    Yet real in all respect
    Relishing friendly conversation
    With one as real as I
    I spy
    As time leaves us without time
    Yet in our mind
    We command time
    Molding it to conform to our will
    As we sculpture this
    Flow
    Into a work of art
    For all ages

    WHAT ARE WORDS FOR?

    To give life or to bring
    About death
    The choice is up to
    The scribe
    Whether they edify
    Or destroy
    Yet all in all
    In all things
    And by all things
    I watch all things….


    And the Luciousb said in reply
    for she knows that the Watcher
    is near by
    I see no danger
    To me you are
    not a stranger
    Feeling rhaposdy
    all over and through
    me

    Sensitive soul and
    seductress , willing
    friend and poetess
    I confess to nothing
    less , but to give
    each action and
    thought my best

    Opening a can of unknown
    contents
    No label , but neither are there
    dents
    What you discover
    and now recover
    the warmth of a sunset
    at bay
    and what that meant

    Chrimson flows from my fingers
    as the rapid pace of my thoughts
    lead
    and my fingers bleed
    Compulsion to explore, not ignore
    WHAT ARE WORDS FOR?

    Time limits your opportunities
    and waits for no one
    But in the midst of the mix
    "Ain't it funny how time seems
    to stand still?"
    Until... You breathed the breath
    of Poetic life and set my heart
    to beating an erratic beat
    And my toes tapping to a
    soulful beat

    Release this mystical , magical
    hold and let this story now
    unfold . Magnificent , sometime
    militant words fly from my lips
    Gyrations and involuntary rotations
    occur in my hips
    To the defender , the pretender
    or the lender , poetical virginity
    surrender

    Fast paced emotions , cause a
    frenzied reaction
    Mad skills crave to be put into
    action...
    And this poem be just one small
    fraction
    Of this Abstract introspection
    that we explore
    The positive flow from your
    veteran status is something
    I could not ignore
    WHAT ARE WORDS FOR?

    It sounded better in my head I believe?

    Thanks Coco, this was evidently one that will go back to the drawing board...Don't know if anyone got it. But, then all poems
    are not written with everyone in mind. And everyone doesn't
    get everything we write.
    I shall keep on scribing and striving!
    BLESSINGS ON YA HOUSE!

    Now Sista Destee!

    Now I am trying to go to a higher level with the brotha who commands such annonimity. Last time we got started we almost shut the place down. But, I am sure we will explore that arena
    I know I will certainly be up for it!:toast:
