Lantern - Bearer in the Dark

Wow! I have been gone for so long! I've gotten out of the habit of writing poetry, which is a very, very bad thing. My life is much narrower and considerably less colorful without the splendid challenge and the mental, emotional, and spiritual release of poetry. 

This little offering is one I've been thinking about for awhile. I'm not completely satisfied with it, but perhaps it will serve to revive my poetic habits. 

Roam the waste of
Barren heart,
Trace the web
Of tempting art,
Wander, 'til
You see the spark...
Lantern - bearer
In the dark.

  1. Great to see you are writing again!
    It's a small piece but it gives the impression of something bigger.
