Pursuing the poetical, paradoxical, metaphorical, lyrical, artistical, majestical, and mystical.

Biblio

I am 
alive words
 carried through
time 
protected from harm
undiluted

a
poem to feel a
parable to understand
a metaphor to see
paradox to puzzle
wisdom to know 
prophesy to fulfill
truth to live
bright and sharp
I am
open book 
full pages
words
written on
 hearts   
I am


We just saw "Book of Eli". It prompted this.
