I Am The Poet and the Poem

I am the poet and the poem
I am the coolness and the warm
I am the gentle and the harm
I am the silence and alarm

I am the tiny grain of sand
I am the rain upon the land
I am the color of the wind
I am the clouds as they begin

I am the canyon and the echo
both the stardust and the star glow
I'm the diamond and the hard coal
both the bright yes and the dark no

I am the seeker and the finder
both the clear way and the blinder
I am the with and the without
Both an open and closed mouth

I am the quiet and the storm
I am the found and the forlorn
I am the sower and the reap
I am the laughter and the weep

I am the shoe upon the floor
the in and outside of the door
the now and future evermore
I am the sea and that sea's shore

I am the center of all things
and the outer distant rings
Every tear and every dream
the playful child of make-believe

While yet I'm sleeping and awake
it is both life and death I take
It is my heart that's bound to break
And when it mends, more love will make

Thanks Goodnapps, Cee, and BlessedGemLady...

I have been away for a minute, but will try to update soon.

My sister and I are planning on publishing a hard copy book POD soon. For now, I just share through blogging and myspace. I have not sought out the stamp and send publishing outlets these days.

Be blessedGemLady!!!
