A name on a page.

Poets, writers in general harvest from a similar world of words

Making their own connections while meandering pathways between meadows

Drifting off into dreamland always with Spectre for company

Many consider the writer a loner

Working away in silence, laying down then bidding farewell to an idea.

He may seem distant yet is far removed from being a loner

A name on a page, laid bare warts and all.

What makes a poem work, this question has been posed many times

The fact that it had to be written perhaps?

Rejection can drive your success.

He strapped himself into the cockpit eager to face the day

Two stout friends from Columbia and Havana assist in what has to be said

Collaborators not dictators

Unknown to themselves offering the writer many lifelines

At seventy with snow on top and worn by weather

Making his own connection, meandering along pathways between meadows.
