I write because there is nothing larger in life than
To be read, maybe even reread by another–
To be examined and then verified of being
Understood, or trusted like a saint–
I don’t imagine being immortalized
Or stacked in a library for hands with a million
Oppositions to wander through for
Poetic justice either–
Perhaps purpose is purchased or earned or even
Inherited by some mystic right–
But it is my reasoning I hearken to,
All that I am resonates with inscribing, putting down
My Self on the papyrus of today,
Like a manuscript never quite decrypt but
Interesting to the soul’s eye
For perpetual encounter.

All the kings of the earth shall praise you, O Lord for they have heard the words of your mouth. Psalm 138:4 ✝
Pingback: 265. Of the six million species on the planet, only man makes language. Words. What’s more — in evidence of the Divine — we string symbols together and then write them down, where they take on a life of their own and breathe outside of us. ~
Charles Martin is an exceptional writer–glad to see one of his quotes! Blessings ~ Laura
This was my first exposure to him. I’ll have to check him out. Blessings, Natalie 🙂
That is a pretty image. Did you create it?
I wish I knew how to do things like that. I found it on Pinterest and it fit my piece perfectly so I “borrowed” it. Blessings, Natalie 🙂
I love the “painting”—incorporating the two mediums—gorgeous
Thanks, I sure wish I were talented enough to do that. I found the image on Pinterest and thought fit my last posting of Debbie’s poems beautifully, given her love for flowers and words. Hugs, my friend. Natalie 🙂
The image you have chosen for this is stunning. Did you make this yourself?
No, I wish I knew how to do such things, but I found the image on Pinterest. Blessings, Natalie 🙂
