In Words...I find beauty
in words...I find peace
in parlance of living
in figures of speech

the comfort of writing
ink...meeting with page
the soothing of soul
the ebbing of rage

in rhyme...I find reason
for all of life's seasons
expressions of love and humor and pain
when written on paper...make me feel sane

the sacred union of paper and words
bonded by thought...these lovers converge
a marriage well scripted with love and with lust
in words of forever...laced with truth and with trust

Lyra,
The candlestick shape of your poem is the perfect symbol for the light-giving candle that you are. Soon as I figure out how to hug someone through a computer; watch out!

Startime, Roger and Stevie....
Thanks so much for your replies...
Writing is very soothing...even though sometimes it doesn't turn out like I want it to...its still great therapy.
      


Roger...this is how you give someone a hug through the computer.

Well dear lady. In this you wrote a keeper. I must put into words this day that while you are gone, you are not forgotten. These are truly words to cherish.

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.
