Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …

To another poet

To another poet …

 

You

inspire

me to think,

to dream, believe

in the power of

words, something I had lost

in my personal silence,

doubts, and self-pitying darkness.

Thank you seems inadequate at best.

 

But that’s the magic of connection,

the value of community,

the passion of kindred souls,

whose only bond is words,

the expression of

your heart and mine.

So thank you,

poet,

friend.

Insulation

Insulation

 

You know,

there is always

more than one purpose for

insulating ourselves from the

"out there".

 

But why

do we bury

ourselves away from the

truth we try to pretend isn’t

"in there"?

Crocus

Crocus

Maybe

I’m emerging

from the dormancy of

my own Winter, and flowering

again?

Today, remind me

I can only be myself

and that is enough.
