~ Brush Strokes

A poet needs a model,
As sure as artist's brush.
We need not pay commission,
For the world will sit for us.

A knowing heart and sympathy.
Yet these are bought at a dear price-
The pains and sufferings of life.
We paint the lines in a mother's face

Very effective use of repetition (anaphora) -'I wrote'. Profound thoughts.

beautifully expressed vocation of a poet, of a particular poets and of the seen and unseen kind army of poets throughout all generations. It is such a wondrous relief to read this and know that a contemporary poet has written this. This way of looking at and loving and writing poetry seems almost forgotten in the general landscape of poetry now. Thank You!

So eloquently captures the hand and heart of a poet. Reads like an instruction manual for learning life's lessons. Easy to find a daily mantra, in your lovely sentences, brush stroked with care. I invite you to wander around my writes, a common thread spun. PEACE
