    Abstract Portraitives

    Pen me words of longing, unyielding and provocative

    Note paper phrases dipped in dimensions for evocative

    Hungered explorations, creative in potential, sidekicks acquisitive

    Open the spiritual sight I want to feel alive, totally combustive
    Take me to the limits of my partial understanding, loose eruptive

    Spare time now to shift from task orientation to the imaginative

    Bring alongside those who are skilled, well driven, complimentive

    We can splash through puddles of hidden structures experimentive

    Outside the known into the shadows of established infinitive

    One will not be held back confined by ideas soaked imitative

    Reach into the areas not yet explored, vast, crisp, illuminative

    Fill the hollows of questing material with color, depth, immensive

    For inner strengths and courage abounds in the unconstrictive

    Close the eyes go deep within, listen for the purely instinctive

    Bring it in, hold it close, sound it out, turn it investigative

    Stir up the fired core, harness curiosity its locomotive

    Unloose me from the confines of misconceptions driven judicative

    Longing is calling to increase the horizon of beginnings intensive

    Find for me fields that seep in the swirl of magnet-o-motive

    Rock in the lyrics of unsung sonnets, drum beats animative

    Wrap all heart innocence in bows of the expressive

    Let it explode into the universe of fully progressive

    The true philosopher and the true poet are one, and a beauty, which is truth, and a truth, which is beauty, is the aim of both.

    Ralph Waldo Emerson, American Poet (1803-1882)
