Found It--By Cindy Hutchings--United States

Found It
(Inspired by the memory of Prince)

Let it be
what it wants

a song, a poem

let it flow
through the strings, the pen

find life       in your hand

give yourself   to it
let it play, pour, soar

go in, explore

your journey
your quest

rising within, wellspring

come again       to the source
find where       you     need to be

take others with you.

Cindy Hutchings’ first poetry chapbook, "Tree Talk," was published by MoonPath Press; info is at: http://moonpathpress.com/CindyHutchings.htm. Her poetry is also shared online at QuillandParchment.com. Cindy is a member of Northwest Renaissance & Striped Water Poets in Auburn, WA, USA. She graduated from the University of Washington with a BA in English and Women Studies.

  5. Cindy,

    Thank your the beautiful tributary to Prince in your poem. I was a fan of Prince and was always amazed at how musically-talented he was. Continued blessings!
