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?
