Through Poetry - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
More than a stage set,
To burn depths of love and passion.
More than a spotlight to focus,
Upon the social ills...
That trap ideals in delusion.
More than a fence attempting to mend,
Broken relationships that hit dead ends.
And more than a safety net,
To catch embittered disconnections
From good intentions misunderstood.
Hearts find themselves protected,
When this can be done without moving lips.
Or visited impressions made...
To be misinterpreted.
Through poetry environments can create such spells.
Through poetry there are no requirements,
One should receive it sitting...
In a perfumed fragrance.
Through poetry one can be inspired...
Without requests of limits met.
Unless this is the desired wish of the poet!
