Freedom of expression

The ancient eavesdropper

On the
verge of
a word —
at the edge
of a verb —
off the cliffs
of emotion —
I throw
myself into
a poem.

We are
ephemeral
graffiti art —
brought to
life today —
whitewashed
tomorrow —
short bursts
of the
rainbow.

The simple
fact remains —
we only have
so many
days —
make them
count in
every way —
be the
difference —
no regrets.

Your body
of work
built by
a lifetime
of words —
standing
on its own
terms.

My brain
is a tin can
kicking around
an idea —
a pinwheel
revolving
words —
a yo-yo
spinning
the world.

Euphoric
morning
melodies —
birdsong
thru an
open
window —
dreams
take flight
from my
pillow.

We are
the beneficiaries
of dreams —
the benefactors
of hope —
the beautiful
souls who
live thru
their poems.

Freedom
of expression —
a basic
human

    Not only the message is great but what´s even better is how you wrote it. I have one fancy word to describe this “extraordinaire”
