Communication...

To reach another's heart with words
is the mainstay of poetry
What greater joy to know,
than that you have touched another soul?

The miles and length of time
are nothing to ideas
written for reading by another's heart
Be it hundreds of years or thousands of miles

Banned by tyrants, spurned by the ignorant
These messages, words strung together
are deserving of recognition
and equally so, to be enjoyed forever

Writing purely for oneself, is the ultimate in defensive posture.

Hi, Geezer,
"...Be it hundreds of years or thousands of miles." I can't help but think of sages and wise poets who, century after century, contributed to some thick and gigantic book of poetry, and to all those who continue to add to the same book. Beautiful.

thought! A gigantic poetry book, where poets through the ages have their works inscribed! A book to be read by poets while waiting for eternity to end. Hmmmm.~ Geez.

about this "book" soon heading down the stream! "If you write it, they will read." :)

It doesn’t exactly rhyme and it’s not so tight it’s obvious but it’s got rhythm.

I’m going with that. Take them or leave them but I like your style friend.

Words have an amazing way of reaching the depth's of people's souls, more than what they ever could have imagined. Could not have said it any better!

I am happy with the response this piece has garnered. My forays into other parts of writing and poetry have for the most part,
been well received. Thank you for adding to those compliments ~ Geez.

I loved that you wrote this. I feel that you could have taken it farther, and drawn it out a bit. But I like where this goes. I've been working on something I want to post when it is ready. Steve is helping me, I dictate and he types for me. He says hello to you! ;) both of us wish you luck on the contest.

When someone reads your work
And responds, please be courteous
And reply in kind, thanks.

I have had praise for this one, I am not so satisfied as when I first posted it. I will put this on the backburner for a little bit and maybe
after it simmers for a while, I will come back to it. Thank you for the read and comment. ~ Geez.
