                    Words

So many times Iíve sat alone and pondered
And wondered why I felt so quite aloof,
I see meadows of the mind where I have wandered,
And the joy of such is my own living proof.

I see again some tranquil crystal waters,
As time now turns the wheel of my imagination,
Moonbeams and magic creep in from different quarters,
Leaving me enveloped in a feeling of elation.

So many times Iíve walked some peaceful pathway
Thatís led me far away from all my friends,
And then I return again to quietly face the fray,
In the silent hope that I might make amends.

Every time I search for some elusive magic phrase
Or wondrous words that come within my grope,
Itís like a rainbow that one sees on showery days
A vanishing bridge to heaven, filled with hope.

Words are thoughts that our mind will always paint,
Like some glistening glade in May-timeís morning dew,
And we wonder at its magic that will in time grow faint
And we marvel in the day that breaks anew.

With terms of eloquence, comes the need to write,
To share the magic of the expansive written word
And in sharing, should the words be dull or bright,
Their importance most certainly cannot be deferred.

For every time I cried and felt myself alone,
Like some lost soul that knew not where to look,
The inner truth is a thing that I cannot postpone,
So to enjoy all those wondrous words, Iíll write a book.

~ My dear Aussie Man and friend, I always enjoy the magic of your "expansive written word" and your words are never "dull".

I thoroughly enjoyed reading your book "Verse for Everyone".

For those interested in Lindsay's book, here is the link to my post regarding it, in Announcements.

Beautiful! And I think the idea of writing the book is perfect, as I see you have already acquired experience in this field!

Enjoyed the flow of your thoughts!

Thank you AT for the information ...

Linda, you always say the nicest things and I do thank you for that. I also thank you for mentioning my book,'Verse For Everyone,'
As you have seen, it cotains five different categories, Life, Humour, Friends, Wildlife and Sport. It costs twenty dollars plus postage with a money back guarantee if not satisfied. I might add that I have never ever had one returned.
A very warm hug to you Linda, Love

Enjoyed the read, Lindsay.  Thank you.  Yes, words are so very important.  The writing of them is indeed magical but some speak them without thought and that's sometimes not good at all.

Lindsay,

   I feel the following on a busy day that's been cut four ways and multiplied by nine!  At times, I am unable to find a common word to communicate that which I desire.  It's that magical phrase that I hunger!  You describe the fulfillment when the image is caught by the desired words.

Or wondrous words that come within my grope,

The second to last stanza is oh so true. --- To have an idea inside of you just struggling to get out and be put onto paper is one of the struggles of writing.  But when the writer succeeds there can be no greater joy.
