The Gift Of The Silent Word... - Poem by Frank James Ryan Jr (FjR)

The pen marks the paper
that marks the quantum
of literary amplitude
that one's been given,
as a gift from sources
many believe as mystery
rather than serendipity,
or just outright oddity,
some congenital enigma.

The pen marks the paper
that marks the quantum
of literary amplitude,
that regardless its source
recipients of this gift
should be thankful,
worthy and humbled of-
this honor in possessing
such invaluable largesse,
and blessing that most
will never know the feel,
the taste of what it's
like to possess........
the gift of the Silent Word.
