    Are we truly kindred spirits?

    Or merely alike through happenstance
    I need more than compatibility
    I need the compliment of souls
    I need to hear the story of you

    How, Why, What, Where, When and Who brought you here?


    How you managed to blossom in the drudgery we call life
    Man you are beautiful
    Why do you use poetry to state then veil your true self?
    Or am I just imagining things?
    What moved you into the passionate realm in which you reside?
    Can I be the essence of inspiration?
    Where were you when you r true vocation found you?
    Wordsmith and poet laureate
    Who brought you joy versus who delivered you pain?
    And it shaped you how?

    And then I shall tell you

    How I rode Pakeia's whale of circumstance to deliverance.
    Were you too moved by the tide?
    Why I manipulate verbiage to claim my poetic victories.
    Sometimes failures come instead.
    What motivates me to strive for excellence?
    Worth more than the very air I breathe
    Where I when I found my watering hole
    So thankful for the nourishment and growth
    Who led me here... to you
    Am I being too presumptuous?

    Answer me these questions
    And somewhere in our quest for knowledge
    Hidden under the veil of verbosity and prose
    We will see the truth and if...

    We are truly kindred spirits

    "Answer me these questions

    Wow....Softly, this is a serious piece...so many questions of great depth, it actually makes me question why do I write..........so many great points....

    "How you managed to blossom in the drudgery we call life
    Man you are beautiful
    Why do you use poetry to state then veil your true self?
    Or am I just imagining things?"

    That is just so well put. You have the gift of clarity in your words......im hooked....secretly, you knew I'd love this one.....
    a beautiful tribute to a poet...

    I am but a simple poet but this reminded me of the reasons why I let my emotions flow through the pen and I use language as my shield and guide. Thanks for reminding me of why. Because if you didn't ask the questions than I wouldn't of reflected. I really enjoyed this piece. Keep on doing what you do cuz.
