/ Lost In Words /


the sea was dust,
the dust was sea,
and both were sky
no one there
no one here
no one around
only the pens,
and this poet
lost in words

    I'm not quit sure but I really enjoyed this poem. It's beautiful, and has a certain innocence about it. It gives you a Brie into the poets solitude while he's writting. Very good! (Report) Reply

    All alone with your pen and the magic of sea, dust and sky.
    Many times words fall short to describe such magical moments of amazing beauty. Wonderful observaion, masterfully penned. (Report) Reply
