POETRY A FLAME, A FLOWER, A GIFT, A STAR, A VOICE, A PATH, A SPIRIT, A DESTINAT ION, A PASSION…~by Bernard Owor


 

 

POETRY A FLAME, A FLOWER, A GIFT, A STAR, A VOICE, A PATH, A SPIRIT, A DESTINATION, A PASSION…

Poetry a flame of wordily worlds of fantasy and real
Poetry a ravisher of souls with the bliss of a spiritual meal
Poetry a fountain of words with the power to restore and heal
Poetry a sea of dreams that fate can neither defile nor steal
Poetry a flower that can blossom anywhere, a seed of pure zeal
Poetry a passionate part of you and me and all we can be!

Poetry a God given gift, a talent of man’s most natural skill
Poetry a science to inspire and empower or disempower ones will
Poetry a stream of emotions that can flow uphill or downhill
Poetry a rainbow of life with infinite life tainted colors to fill
Poetry a mystery of life and the paradox nature of ink and quill
Poetry a passionate part of you and me and all we can be!

Poetry a force of nature that bestows us abilities surreal
Poetry a magic of love, intimacy and aphrodisiac appeal
Poetry an art of wisdom with rhythm and sight to reveal
Poetry a star so bright no darkness can ever conceal
Poetry a marker of past, present and any future ordeal
Poetry a passionate part of you and me and all we can be!

Poetry a script of history and events imprinted in times reel
Poetry a voice of all and for all in life’s great universal wheel
Poetry an energy source of feelings and desires we so deeply feel
Poetry a blade that cuts both sides forged with words of steel
Poetry a spirit so wild and free that can never ever be brought to heel
Poetry a passionate part of you and me and all we can be!

Poetry a beginning and an end a map on a worldly stencil
Poetry a path drawn with poetic words from a pen or pencil
Poetry a cup of mortal life or mortal peril, a divine utensil
Poetry a doctrine, a way of life, both of a manly and godly council
Poetry a voyage through uncharted waters seeking shores to drop anvil
Poetry a passionate part of you and me and all we can be!
