Time Traveller - Poem by leonard daranjo

Un-impacted by time
He merges with it and moves on
He is an observer, an onlooker
A recipient of rich experience
Deeply felt
Carefully expressed
In its natural colour and benign shade
He can taste the purified air
And smell it too
He can roll like the waves
Mix like the water
And sing like the wind
He can shatter all boundaries
Personal and geographical
Words are no longer good enough
To express himself
They are limited
And don’t have the range
He must transcend the word to be free

    again a fine piece with a good flow and feel to it, there are some strong lines in this poem, full of thought and lines that encourage the reader to challenge and think about what they are reading, i am not totally sure the 5th line from the bottom works, 'words are no more good enought to express himself' the line seems to halt the flow of the poem.' words are no longer good enough' might work better, but whom am i to say, please dont take offence to what i have said, the poem is a strong piece of work, and i enjoyed the read.

    best wishes
