    Poem Commentary

    This is the essence of life, if you don't understand now someday you will


    The beauty of the broken,
    forever unspoken,
    the words of tomorrow,
    lie in elegant sorrow.

    01-16-2010 do you do that...its like in those few words you captured a million.



    I know I have never been able to duplicate it, a poem quite so short with so much raw power. Then again that poem was the summation of years of thought about life and swept in on the wings of inspiration. I have to remember to let go and relax; to just let it flow out of me.

    Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.

    Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
