The Poet's Path
~Marge Tindal~ 1999

Though I say
I write for me ...
I know it isn't true.
I write because I wish
to share my thoughts with you.

Without someone to read
the verses that I pen,
I might just as well
have kept the words within.

Joy abounds
just to know
you found it to your liking ...
Everyone needs a mountain
when they embark upon hiking.

I liken the poet
to 'painting' the mountain,
for the reader to 'climb'.
Knowing you reached the top
makes this poet feel divine.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I am sitting here...smiling...happy to think to one I was an inspiration...such fine words...you've captured what we do, and you did it very well.

I humbly say "Thank you."

I agree Marge, a poet without a reader is like a good meal without an eater. You said it so well.

Sunshine - You have been an inspiration to many, my dear.
Martie - Thanks. It's true, we all set a lovely table, but if no one shows up to dine ... the meal is for naught.

This is wonderful, Marge! Yep, we would sure be a sorry lot without someone to read what we write!
