“For that fine madness still he did retain,
Which rightly should possess a poet’s brain.”
~Michael Drayton~ (1563-1631)

“The Writer First”
By Madison Taylor
6th January 2009

I am the writer
I am the reader
Crossing the finish
To win first prize

Learning understanding
What the words are saying
Separate then joined
Going from one
To understanding
To none

And nothing
Being
Without meaning
Questioning it All

No bears to witness
The senses are raw
Deciding what real is

If not
Life holds no meaning
What then are we
A being never in tomorrow?

Written while under the influence
Of the Mad Hatter
Do the best to translate
Or go with the meaning
The Non-Senses share in explanation

“Doorway to a Place of Enchantment”

“Creating is having the courage
to allow the seer into the private
moments of our imaginative lives.”
