I am the setting sun
bleeding crimson-red
Into blue horizon.

I am the moon riding
In a midnight sky
shrouded yellow pale.

I am the Keeper of the Flame
with a prophet’s name *
and when I forever fall
I will have kept it written all.

*Jeremiah= Geremia

Simply wonderful Joe.
The title brought me in and the piece added to my awe. Wonderful!!


Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words
........Robert Frost☺

Follow me

We are all keepers of the flame.

except the asterisk to reference your name is perhaps unnecessary.

Powerful and evocative. I don't expect to leave such a legacy, a few humorous pokes here and there, perhaps my best work helping younger poets.

Your presence on this earth is known ,my friend. You will leave this place having cut through life's absurdities like burning steel, You are Promethean. Jess.

Spent most of my life upside down having my liver pecked out [grins]
But seriously, I do like to bringing the fire.
my friend.

A grand write, the keepers of the flame, we are all that Joe, and as we travel on this is what we must aim for.
Many are here just so that others may learn, but in showing others that we also learn,
Take care young Joe, Yours Ian.T

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..

Life is a series of inevitabilities.

As one gains age or infimity it's appropriate to identify with the ending of the day and coming of the night. Let's hope our days last a bit longer though lol..............stan

From your mouth to God;s ears,Stan
