She Asked For A Poem - Poem by Jim Norausky

Can anyone capture the essence of another person

in a painting, photo, or written words that last?

Whose temporal life loves family and pets,

and angels, and memories of events past,

while avoiding some things like traveling in jets.

Whose professional life passes knowledge

learned from books written throughout the ages

to students viewing a computer with a menu of pages.

Whose spiritual life has infusions of grace

from God and family souls looking into His face.

Whose home life tends to the many needs of three

linked by vows and destiny without illusions.

Whose many lives commingle

to fulfill dreams of final conclusions.


(For Helene, July 4,2008)

    Love is the ink in that pen and thanksgiving is the pen clutched in a good man's hand. She asked for a poem, hopefully the lives spent together was the supreme poem. (Report) Reply

    Very well written lines.. You might nor capture the essence of another person in poetry, but you certainly captured the hardships of trying to do so.. Thank you for sharing..

    She asked for a poem and you wrote it. Brava!
    I do wish for someone to capture me somehow, lovingly,
    in prose /poetry, picture or portrait, any of the three.

    As this superb poem points out in it's very first line, 'Can anyone capture the essence of another person...'. Those are quite profound words, Jim, just as this poem is a profound write. It is beautifully phrased from beginning to end, and does very effectively tell a good bit about the person, Helene, apparently a teacher.
    It is a very impressive write. Carl.
