    Speaking Words
    that are neatly shined
    and glossed in
    meaningful beauty

    This language that
    is frequently used
    has the
    mind's eye
    seizing emotions
    until I'm
    wrapped around
    the base of his
    tongue

    searching to find the
    hidden treasure
    that lays trapped
    between his mouth
    and pharynx --

    ~ at rest ~

    The pearl of a
    polished mind
    given life
    through the larynx
    expressing the
    secrets of his
    ocean - deep

    S O U N D.

    Dialect is distinct
    straight from the
    spirit ...

    and unto him...
    I dive right in
    taking on the form
    of christened beads
    surrounding
    the soul ...
    from which
    I cling

    A pearl that is
    more precious
    than any
    fool's gold

    Well, your question to me is a good one... and it made me stop & think for a while...
    So as I ponder -- I will tell you this is what I came up with...

    Your question "What's my motivation"?

    My answer..... GOD, Child, Relationships, Enemies, Love, Life, Hurt, Pain, Happiness, Sadness, Joy, Lonliness, Bitterness, Comfort, Crying, Laughing, Smiling, Frowning, Touching, Tasting, Smelling, Hearing, Seeing, Believing, Mental Efficiencies, Mental Deficiencies, Stability, Growth, Development, Challenges, Peace, Detriment, Learning, Teaching, Understanding, Ambition, Goals, Sharing, Caring, Generosity, Attitude, Gratitude, Listening, Speaking, Reading, and naturally the unthinkable thirst for words & their meanings....

    Thanks for allowing me to reach within self and evoke my own thoughts as to what really motivates my energy to write certain pieces...

    I am just a painter amongst skilled poets....

    Thank you again for asking & for reading my piece ~

    One :heart:
