Verse in Transition

it can make you leak teardrops
it can trigger belly guffaws
touch the gut and the heart

scribbled to capture time
the color of a begonia
the scent of an ant

brutal battles remembered
zen experience expanded
half-forgotten dreams explored

penned to release an itch
the anger of the dismissed
the passion of newfound love

writ to traverse a saga
respond to a challenge
enflame the imagination

spontaneous and raw
practiced and skillful
words played and plotted

read as assignment
ancient history revisited
savored in a private place

the many faces of poetry
the privilege of the pen
