From Simplicity...Great Renderings.

From Simplicity, Great Renderings.

So simple a device,

the fingers pressed

as electronic buttons open

the wealth of beauty beneath,

or the hands that clasp

a pen scratch out hope

on the blank looks

that so many wear.

A pencil stencils thoughts

from head to paper

magic forms in

loops and swirls,

and blesses the souls

of all the world.


So many ways

 

to express

 

into press

 

words that are more

 

than just a guess

 

on the meanings

 

the gleanings of life.

 

Even ancient man was driven

 

to burn sticks

 

scratch stones

 

and blend pigments

 

on cave walls

 

to leave a legacy

 

of who and what they were

 

for all to see

 

in generations not yet

 

realized.



Poets carry a torch

for all that is

needed to be said,

lit by the

sparks of inspiration,

the heat of love,

the flames of wrath,

and the fires of

passion unquencehed.
