The Poet's Pen

in answer to the calling night
be visions and words of light
in answer to the dawning day
be heartfelt expressions of THE WAY
this the poet's pen in questing revelation
this the poet's pen in homage to CREATION
words holding to the grace of rhyme
words in tribute to the gift of time
moments, days, years, decades I have lived
to the poet's pen in gratitude I do give
with pen in hand a knowing be the grace
with word a moment in reflection I to trace
heed the ever present soulful plea
let all be lovingly blessed by THEE.
