Why Poetry?

Poetry is breath,
Image draped bare
Over ochre emotion

Finest strands of gold
Woven word by word,
Hue and breadth into life,

A palette of diamonds
Dripping from silver filigree,
Piercing points of

Liquid luminescence
Spilling depth across the page
Oxygen into life,

Moments,
Texture-rich,
Drenched in ink,

Vision born to light
This is Holy Grail
And why I write.

*I am offering this poem and these photos for the challenges: Why Poetry? and Contre-Jour through The High Calling and TS Poetry Press.

    1. Thanks, Honey! Love your feedback — always. πŸ™‚ As for a book, well, I’m simply following God’s lead, hoping one day my words wind up on bound and printed pages — and maybe some photos too. Love You — always!
