While The River Flows

Yesterday I had so much on my mind
Thoughts flowed reckless with nowhere to go
Until the day I found an endless reservoir
Next to many others on a utopian land
Where fantasy and reality coexist and play

That was over a half a decade in the past
When I filled my pen with thoughts of my soul
I began articulating a journey etched in time
Finding a hidden love that awakened my heart
Painting metaphors on canvas in soulful words

I’m still sitting quietly by the rivers edge
Watching flowers of past and present bloom
I can feel my pen yearning to spill its words
To quench the thirst of these empty pages
For years to come while the river flows

* I was just notified that this is my 6 year anniversary with WordPress. I can’t believe it’s already been 6 years since I started writing here. I never thought I would still be doing this especially after spending some time away. I want to thank you all so much for continuing with me on this journey.❤

The Soul Of Your Words


I soak up your every letter like dry
grass taking in the first rain

My mind opens flowering with your
essence as it flows through my

You write enigmatic string of words
that my soul can

I journey with you in your world
by your side as you take
me by the hand

I am taken to places that my heart
has yet to fathom or
even dream

Showing me the soul of your words
that with the naked eye cannot be

Painting blank pages with the soulful
rhythm of your breathtaking art

Spewing the colors of life with your
words where it always finds
my heart

I will always look to you for inspiration
like a beacon shining in the distance
in the night

The wings of your words have guided me
through your world as I bathe in the
radiance of your light

( This poem is dedicated to all the poets, story tellers and others who inspire me everyday with their wonderful writing. I feel very lucky to experience humanity at it’s finest here in this WordPress community. It’s people like you and the words you write that will inspire the whole world in a positive way going forward. Thank you for all you do! )
