    For the love of poetry
    I take a look, more closely
    Writing down what I may miss initially
    For the love of poetry

    For the love of poetry
    I remember that tree in late fall
    The one with the wine colored leaves
    Inebriated I drank in the beauty of it all

    That red, so deep and vivid
    One of the last trees to lose it's leaves
    Their texture appeared to be velvet
    The vividness of that beauty cleaves

    For the love of poetry
    His smile captures the world's goodness and light
    and illuminates all the dark corners of the earth
    making the sun merely dream of shining so bright

    His smile must be infectious
    it stokes my temperament until it glows
    becoming a welcome, inviting hearth
    that warms me from my head to my toes

    For the love of poetry I
    see the notes of that song multiply
    morphing into humanoid form
    limber arms and legs stretching to the sky

    In unison black dancers
    prance in symmetry
    Closing my eyes, I see them dance just for me
    Ah...for the love of poetry

    a very gorgeous write....

    great use of description and color...the leaves of wine, his smile....somehow they are intertwined into your existence.

    Creates that...radiance in you.

    :spinstar: Beautiful

    Part 2 is in the works...thank you Admin Rich.
    Thank you for feeling that radiance sweet apple pie, much appreciated.
    Well epiphany, I feel similarly after I've read your work, for you certainly have a way with your pen. Thank you.
    No you can never discount the love, true brother So'ja, part 2 may take me somewhere differently, thank you.
