    inspired by Ms. Hunter & Ms. Jones.....they know I got issues :D



    I/we spin poems from
    multi-colored
    seeds we've sown

    the dreams come,
    but the fabric
    is
    misshapen
    and torn

    my waking hours bring
    no rhyme
    & even less reason

    I/we weave words
    to soothe hurt
    ease pain
    make love

    which brings
    the rain
    again

    I/we see
    with my fingertips
    sounds I utter
    don't come from
    our lips

    stitching together
    pictures
    from the silhouette
    of souls

    against the wall
    above a feather
    bed

    makes manifest
    past-present
    future
    of everything
    I ever heard

    said

    I/we weave/spin
    on a wheel
    within a wheel
    whirling
    circles
    round
    my selves
    creating
    tapestry

    surreal

    don't wake us
    & don't fear
    it's the sanity
    of a poet

    we love it here

    In descent order

    I/we see what we want to
    Embrace what we must
    Pretend
    I/we see the rainbow
    Even when the dark clouds are still raining
    We/I see you....
    Poetically I breath through your words

    everturning ,ever spinning like a wheel within a wheel!

    Thanks for sharing!
    I find that quite daring!
    If everyone were as brave
    as you all of you , you do
    bring when you sing as
    poets sing, sadness,madness
    gladness and just mess!!!!!!!
    "Like a wheel within a wheel everturning everburning like the windmills in my mind!" I think thats Paul Simon correct me if
    I am wrong! Wonderful Alyce my sista!:heart: YOU GOT MUCH HEART!
