    when the spirit comes
    running with new poems
    tattooed on one ankle

    i will draw water
    from forgotten wells
    and wash his winged feet

    hoping the soaked poems
    bleed into the hem
    of a low shadow in
    the shape of my bones

    Whereas the gift
    unto thy spirit
    blockage moved
    like da shadow in sun
    rapidly rise the pen

    Da quill n' ink
    drips aloof thy hand
    stroll scripted
    as it bleed into one's
    hems in thy shape
    of self bones

    lifted !
    :cool:

    bleed it did...for as the spirit of poetry came down, it imbedded its essence in you. and you, child of many wordsmiths, wear your craft well.

    do what you do. i hear you.

    Brother Poet Baller,
    Thank you. There are times when someone says something to me and unbeknown to them, their words have a life altering affect on me. This is one such time. Your words, sir, have helped me heal a very old, deep and painful wound. For that...I am forever grateful to you. From my heart, thank you.

    Kiwanda

    Thanks for the kind words and I swear I looked for an eraser on this thing so that I could erase the word t****t. Please come back and flow to your rhythm. I'm serious. I would love for you to do that.
