A poet is a painter, his seldom read


hanging on timeless walls in leather bound


Wander through a gallery pausing

to read

a poem never before seen.

of a tropical island and azure


lying calm off its crystalline beaches.

where palm trees always sway

to the songs of multi-colored

      tnderhrt23 & Micky Dee,

      Thank you both for taking the time to write me a line.

      Most of my poetry which I am just now beginning to post on HubPages was written while attending college as a veteran in 1976-1978.
