An Illuminated Poem

Energetic peaceful rhythms sending me into a dither
of melody.
Taking it in stride as I step into the center of an illuminated poem, lit by firelight and candlelight
of a blessed home, inspiring me all the days of my
Perceptions of a past come sliding into view and
giving me an extra-special reason for continuing on
the pathway that I now travel alone.

    Ah, The Lonely Life, title of Bette Davis's autobiography. Her life would of been meaningless without films
    Our lives are meaningless without Poetry, at least we have that and it CANT be taxed, it's OURS all ours, for better or for worse.
    Beautifully and touchingly written as usual, An Iluminating Poem, does just that. Thank you (Report) Reply
