“I Want To Hold You”
Painting  A Painting Starts With A Spark

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

“A Poems Starts With One Line”
By Madison Taylor
13th January 2009

“Confronting something
and not quite knowing
yet what it is.”
– Italo Colvino

A poem starts with one line – one word
Thoughts forming with speed
The words coursing through
Causing fingers to bleed

Out through the veins
of the finger with speed

Each stroke that remains
Shows meaning inside
Searching for purpose
A stamp on one’s pride

Approval granted
Pass out gold stars
Send in the next one
Let’s get to the end

Wherever that takes us
To the world on the bend
The words are released
Time to start over again

“Doorway to a Place of Enchantment”

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