A Poet's Heart (to a poet with MS)


There is poetry
in her ceaseless smile
where still lips betray
words receded into
heart chambers and clenched fists.
Her idle body
hopes to heal
while time steals each chance
in its greedy hands.
Gone are the days when
with pen in hand she wrote
the songs of her life,
when poems were not lame
and quieted by fate.

Unfettered, hope stirs
from deep within.
Infectious, her gratefulness
spirits the sympathetic guests.
Vivid are blue eyes
sparked with intent.
Her exuberance
leaves the visitor glad
to have been touched
by such unspoken poetry,
and the pleasure
of her presence.

About the Poet
I am a Christan mother, grandmother, wife, aspiring poet, and owner of a bed and breakfast with my husband of 37 years. I love to create an ambience of serenity in my home. I love soft music, the sounds of the birds in my yard, the whir of the ceiling fans,... Time has passed since the first time I wrote my Poet Bio...it has been three years now....in that time my life has changed drastically. We lost our beloved youngest child, our only son, to suicide. It has been devastating...shaking my faith to its core but not destroying it. I have not been inspired to write for quite some time now. I pray that I will be able to emerge from this pain and write with a new passion about my journey. Until that time I ask for prayers and that God will continue to speak to me and give me the peace that passes all understanding.
