Of what does a P O E T speak... if not of...

P assion
O mnipresence
E ternal
Truth... to awaken heart, soul, mind, to BEING...

This Poet's Word

These echoes of heart in sensibilities reveal 
The TRUTH OF BEING bar conceal 
Passions pulsing plea to be heard
And so be known this poet's word

Loss and lament a tear filled call
Joy and delight beyond befall
In revelation be known the depths of despair
All astride with blessed love and care
The rising sun and gone be the night

Held I in the embrace of the dawning light
The feel of the showering water sweet upon my skin
A baptism new, absolved I of all false sin

Judgments, reprisals, fallacious be their rein
For the SOUL'S PRESENCE knows not constrain 

Confront and resolve the breath calls out
To purpose, to purpose, to purpose, devout.
