    He
    asked
    me
    to
    write

    to
    write a poem
    for him

    I’d
    love
    to
    oblige

    but…

    he
    knows
    writer’s block has
    a grip on my pen obstructing
    a sweet release of the poetic soul in me

    still…

    he
    asked
    me
    to
    write

    to
    write a poem
    for him

    the
    special person
    he is inspires a desire
    to dig-down-deep-down where the
    richest ink lies in me and dip in to create images
    on pages of paper
    for him
    of love, of peace
    and war no more, to paint
    expressions
    (exclusively)
    for him
    of
    rippling waters
    parting through mountains and
    trees and breezes blowing
    nature’s fragrances
    (freely)
    in
    valleys
    l
    o
    w
    where
    winding roads
    seem to go and go and go…
    pass
    an old oak tree
    where I envision him
    seated beneath shaded from the Mississippi sun
    with pad and pen in hand writing poetry
    to his delight

    of
    Ivory stars
    In the midst of midnight
    and the beauty of dawn’s early light
    make him speak…

    life is good

    he
    asked
    me
    to
    write

    to write a poem
    for him

    to
    compose
    words that click together
    like puzzle pieces to form pictures of
    tranquil seashores and mesmerizing skylines


    he
    asked
    me
    to
    write

    to write a poem
    for him

    so
    I
    did

    Sir. Richness,
    Sometimes when we least expect it, inspiration breaks the dam
    and there comes the flow. I’m pleased you enjoyed it!

    Mr. So'ja Man,
    Yes, a special person, but no clues, just words used to express thoughts at a moment passing.

    J’hiah,
    You have inspirited my pen with your craft on many occasion.
    Thanks for coming through… I missed that big grin of yours:D


    Gentlemen, I appreciate your time and comments, BIGTIME!:)

    He asked you to write a poem for him because he wanted to share your art so much that he was a part of it, and had a place in it, and could possess some of that intangible essence, and smile to himself each time he thought about you. It was like painting his picture while he stood very still, or photographing him asleep because you love him so deep. *sigh*

    That was so special. It felt it, and still do.

    LOVE&RESPECT,
    DP2G

    And what you've written is so calm and peaceful, I'm sure the one who requested this will appreciate it to the fullest. I guess writer's block left, as such beautiful lines flowed onto the page. :)

    Your poem was WONDERFULLY
    EXPRESSED. And you thought
    you had writers block. (smh)
    See you just needed a little push,
    I enjoyed this so.

    Much Luv
