    inspired by Heartbeat, dedicated to the Destee House Of Poetry


    ...and then there is that defining moment
    when the words come
    and all that is felt..that wonder filled
    blend of joy/pain... that mysterious
    mix of angst/elation

    sweet/sour
    bitter/honey... that dry heat/ that
    moist and tangy tongue
    tingle that produces the juices
    & raises the short hairs
    and pushes the buttons
    causes the bumps
    ...on all our exclamation points...

    ooh yes,
    that's the time when clarity
    sneaks up on us and overtakes
    our senses, blows our natural minds...
    and the intensity is so overwhelming
    and compelling
    we can't control it, can't hold it
    can't stop the up & down
    jumping going on in our souls

    it cannot be cloaked in secret
    we cannot keep it to ourselves

    the sacred duty of a poet
    is to share light when the
    words finally come

    ...we put the pen to paper, in
    reflex response
    so we can all get some

    Amen! Sista...Amen. So eloquently written with much profound accuracy in describing the poetic juice flow.

    In fact I'd be hard pressed
    to hold back my pen.
    For me to do so would be...
    a carnal sin.


    Thank You Alyce...once again.

    Soooo sensuous in imagery but so real in space and time as well as tightly knit like a priceless poetic sweater...feel where I went with it?
