Poetic Soles


Poetic Soles
I used to write poems as morning began and
place them in my shoes
I walked around, these poems with me
all day…

“The world is but a place of shadows.
Accept the shadows. Accept the world,
But, bring light as you can”
“It is noble to succeed but simply remember
your place in line without that. Build prosperity
from there then out.”

“Deep indigo blues, all around me pouring
through the pores of my soul.”

“Manuel loved Rosita so, he built her a tower
of red roses. None of them with thorns.
All of them created in pleasure.”

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
