I was talking with an online friend the other day and he said "write a poem for me...right now" This is what I came up with in about 5 minutes so it is far from my best...but reading it over I don't think it is too bad either...tell me what you think...

Garrett's Poem

Now that you are in my circle,
wholly a part of my design,
I must decide just where to place you,
your perfect fit into my life.

Perhaps you are my kindred spirit,
he who dances through my sleep
whose ready wit and poetry
determine which words I should keep.

Could you be my sanctuary,
a candle in my darkest need;
that place I run to when I fail,
where all my pathways seem to lead?

might you be my warrior poet,
that phantom lover of my dreams?
A man whose wisdom and whose strength
defeats each obstacle that gleams?

or are you most a simple friend,
a smile and laughter on my way?
I would be blessed to take your hand
if so, it is enough today.

Veyr nicely written...I sometimes find some of my better work comes when I just feel and write and don't think

Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for awhile and leave footprints in our heart and we are never ever the same.

Thank you all for leaving footprints!!

Beki-the most profound and poignant poetry comes from inspiration and the heart. There is a lot to be said for form and work, but nothing can ever replace soul!

Beki,
Enjoyed the poem. Writing is much like painting, once you make the enitial stroke or word the work seems to flow.
