Poetry Break by Linda Imbler

With me poetry has not been a purpose, but a passion.

~Edgar Allan Poe~


Elusive

Portal of time, please open wide for me.

Ten thousand years I need, to uncover

secrets of life and what makes it precious.

We just careen down the road at breakneck speed,

never hearing over noise.

There’s so little sense, so many things, vague,

such conflicting, informational offerings.

Throw wide that door that hides meaning from us.

Friends

We sit here face-to-face

assembling Lego pieces

of a fairytale broken world,

as we talk about

the real one we live in,

more broken

than what we now build.

We’ll need more time

for our own.

He and his family enjoy the beauty of the North Georgia Mountains where they live—especially their screened in back porch where they love to bird watch. ******** ~ "I love realism. I love writing about the raw, down-to-Earth, heartfelt realities of life. I love to write in a way that reaches into the human soul—to take the greatest pains and struggles in life, and make them a blessing to others. Fantasy is a wonderful, interesting thing—but real-life situations, feelings, fears, and dreams are an unexplored ocean of stories that need to be told." ~ ~Scott Biddulph~
