Poet--By Connie Marcum Wong--United States


Poet—Your words,
Like garments of
Gold and silver thread,
Shimmering in sunlight
Or bathed by moonlit glow,
When shed—
Leave me breathless,
Caught up in their naked truth
And timeless flow—
And I become aware
Of nothing else.

  7. Thank you, John Williams, for the following comment--

    Enjoyed "Poets". Poets speak to our souls in a variety of ways. Some poets capture us more deeply than others; yet, there is always something special about poets' expression; perhaps, a new or awakening thought. Thanks.
