Poem for a Poet.

To convey the blush of dusk ... subtle
pastel blues ... and marbled mauves. The texture
of driftwood, ocean mist, falls radiance, the fragrance of spring. A kiss ... Love in the
air ... as if one were there.

This and more ... with a glimpse into soul,
that it may be more then seen, felt ... Known ... to the heart ... Most profound of humane preceptors.

To transcend the mundane to reveal the uncommon in the common, simplify complexity, ambiguity and shed light where light is seldom seen ... Perceive the unifying thread of life & give voice to a tree,
a mountain of stone, or stream unseen. a rare quality ... indeed.
