Intuitum



At war for the truth
words imprison the mind
The will as a beacon
—its light undefined

    4 line poetry is not for me
    With your vast knowledge of over 4 thousand poems in 50 + years
    I only started writing one year ago at age 87 !
    I wrote 2 today - Sweetheart and Original
    My poetry is always from experience.
    I am considered a flash in a pan , here today and gone tomorrow !

      Good for you. Someone once told me "if you want me to speak for an hour, give me a day to prepare. If you want me to speak for five minutes...give me a month. The short ones are (IMHO) the most impactful.
