    Salley's poems are simple & effective...
    wordsworth's theory of poetic diction is still followed, as poetry is the word of every heart, so it should be within the reach of even a lay man.Biology and God stays with me as my favorite...

    Your poems delve into every facet of life—to show its depth, breadth and height. They offer everything from inspiration to comfort. And from enlightenment to intrigue. And also humor. Been reading your works for years and it only gets better. Looking forward to more. Godspeed.

Best Poem of Walterrean Salley

A Common Addiction Among Poets

Intoxicated by the inspiration
Of his trade—
With mental powers at work,
A true poet rarely sleeps.
His mind ever churning
With powerful imagery
That produces thought,
Sound, rhythm and gesture.
He molds with metaphor,
Shapes with simile,
And paints with irony
Like some great maestro
In his toil to produce
A beautiful symphony
For himself and all who would enjoy.
Little wonder he rarely sleeps.

Wasn't He There?

Was there ever a time
(Night or day) ,
When God wasn't there
To make a way?

In sickness and sorrow-
All trials to bear-
Even in loneliness,
Wasn't He there?
