I burn gold

I breathe 
this delicate breath of life
I live in this sanctuary called life
Like a ransom bequeathed by
makers of destiny...
The dictates that calculate
defenses..surviving the
suspense of endurance
the survival of hope..
Freedom commits me not
I endeavor to 
make touch the fire
that spirits my sovereignty
epiphanies echoe my 
agitated soul, as 
I do the arithemetic
of my survival...
a full circle that contours
whimsical prophecies
gone awry...

I read my soul
I pluck verses 
From the depths of my soul
I become poetry 
and poetry becomes me...

I burn gold..

      2. I didn’t post it. It’s sitting on my desk, on paper where I wrote it. It was fun to do. I read yours, it stirred words. I figured out what the structure of the poem was, then wrote mine…THEN I saw nonette at the bottom LOL, if I had seen that first I could have googled it and it tell me the syllables per line πŸ™‚ I enjoyed it thats the important thing. It made me happy to write it :):):)

      1. OK I won’t spoil your mood.. But you have a gift.. Calliope.. No, sorry it’s a natural talent.. A talent that you worked hard on.. Your words reveals an extraordinary tale..

      3. Am more of a dreamer, I think with my heart , make decisions with my mind. Sorry , why but I don’t take too deep observations. I take everything at face value. I trust.

      4. Hmm.. That’s what I thought.. Sadly, I am an observer… So people and thoughts just drift by.. Dreamer is a thinker with aspirations.. And a will.. They also become achievers..
