From tiny beginnings to oceans I discovered the world in words

The Poet’s Tip

Sometimes in life

you hear a phrase

that races in

your heart and mind

and knowing they

are not your words

you search for more

to replicate

the sentiment

that first you met

upon another’s lips.


No synonyms

nor opposites

no adjectives

no smells or sounds

no closing eyes

will conjure up

the aura sense

that fed your soul

as did those words

that first you met

upon another’s lips.


The beauty is

within yourself

rhyme and reason

trapped inside

will flow out from

your fingertips

if only you

observe and breathe

with open hearts

so someone else

will find delight

in words first met

upon another’s lips.
