A Poem, A Friend - Poem by Smoky Hoss

You stumble out of
The cold, blowing world -
Into the warmth and comfort of a poem;
It fills your soul with the sweet aroma
Of being welcomed... welcomed back where you always belong.
You feel that you have arrived somewhere special, as
It wraps loving Words all about you;
The joy and serenity of an old friend,
So dear and so true,
The peace and satisfaction of returning home... once again.

    Poetry is company and a friend of honesty. I like the way you treated it as home and only poets can understand what that means. Great poem with a really wonderful message! (Report) Reply
