    Your poems have the ability to pour rains over the deserted hearts and routined minds.
    Keep this human approach up, dear poetess please.

    To miss reading Lora Colon's poetry would be like never tasting Dr. Pepper, late harvest German wine, or my mom's apple pie, like never jumping out of plane, like never experiencing a family of whales playing in a California cove on a foggy beach as the sun sets, Herman Hesse's poems, or Mahler's 9th. My friend, you are about to discover gold, powerful magic, (and may even encounter God) ! Read on. Time's a wasting! |

    Lorraine's poetry is all about new experiments with life and also a gamut of variety of experiences. I liked her poetry as much as I liked my own poetry.

    Lora Colon is a poet who takes you onto a journey through all hues and shades of life and leave you mesmerized. Her poems though flow easy strike a deep chord.

Best Poem of Lora Colon

A Welcome For My Guests

My head is like a grand hotel,
The guests arrive, one by one,
Some with great accomplishments,
Others are allowed just for fun

They come with gifts of poetry,
Some regale me with their song;
They're all gifted and interesting,
To evict them would just be wrong

I graciously accept their gifts,
In return, I give them a home;
And every now and then I embark
On the writing of another poem

If not for them, where would I be?
There'd be no reason or rhyme;
There'd be no music within these walls,
Ideas, just drifting through ...

Loneliness

I can't get away from the loneliness,
It hangs over me like a cloud,
It follows me like a stray, hungry dog,
It waits for me in the crowd.

It used to pant and claw at my door,
I resisted, but I knew it would win,
It found the key hidden under the mat
And now it just lets itself in.
