Feast Upon Your Words
Greetings, all you literary ghosts,
haunting old reams like attentive hosts.
What secrets will you reveal tonight,
or magic wish will you bring to light?
Adventure appeals to every age,
as stories flow from the written page.
Will you sail a pirate ship with me,
our hearts consumed by love of the sea?
Perhaps instead we will chart the stars,
or peruse old scrolls stored in clay jars.
And turn snips of exaggeration,
into tales of imagination.
For it's your subtle wisdom I find
wafting into my subconscious mind.
Feed me lines of hope, heroes and nerds,
for I wish to feast upon your words.
Emile Pinet was born in a small city, (Bathurst) New Brunswick, Canada, the third eldest of thirteen children, ten girls and three boys. He is the product of a semi-dysfunctional family, brought up by a physically abusive and controlling father, versus a loving, nurturing mother. Many of his poems reflect the uniqueness of nature, which he loves, and his poetic observations of life in general. Emile is 66 years old and has been writing poems since he was about 35. The ideas started to come to him rapidly one day at work-- he decided to write them down and express himself through his poetry.
