poetic pause…

“The smell of ink is intoxicating to me — others may have wine,

but I have poetry.”

~ Terri Guillemets

Fruit For Thought…

“To the eyes of a miser a guinea is more beautiful than the sun,

and a bag worn with the use of money has more beautiful proportions than a vine filled with grapes.”

– William Blake

“If You Were” by L. K. Thayer

If you were air I would breathe you

If you were a bed I would make you

If you were lost I would find you

If you were wine I would drink you

If you were a plane I would fly you

If you were an orange I would squeeze you

If you were invisible I would see you

If you were golden I’d retrieve you

If you were imprisoned I would free you

If you were mine I’d never leave you
