I DO


I do create through writing magic
Concepts to give growth and insight
Thoughts expressed in ink with wisdom
My fortune of poems and its sparkling delights
It's my planted tree filled with treasures
Cherished in endless aims, driving dreams and hopes
A gushing river which flow within me
Inside tiny soft things to float
Pleasures with high cast desires of happiness
Numerous personal emotions, ideas and votes
Contain inside are my many hidden secrets
Priceless and countless links to all my notes
A flea portion of a free-reasoning
It holds my shovel, water and rake
The tools performed by my pen
My weapons to create
I create because I have snares
Leaves near by have fallen down,
To this leaf event, this thought
Hold misgivings
In spring leaves will return

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

"Oh Day of Fire and Sun"
by Sara Teasdale

Oh day of fire and sun,
Pure as a naked flame,
Blue sea, blue sky and dun
Sands where he spoke my name;

Laughter and hearts so high
That the spirit flew off free,
