you are the poem i read

A Poem by Lydia

when the world is overwhelming
and the horizon is suddenly dark
you are the poem i read
your waterfalls of emotion drench me
i open my mind to a kaleidoscope of color
an ever-changing palette of hues
like colonizing a new country
words build new meanings 
then take up residence in my psyche
each one like a kiss on my cheek
then my neck
and beyond
each one thrilling me just a little more
till the world is not so bad after all
and i’m hungry to take a bite out of my day
you need to know this
you are the poem I read


if you think it might be about you....then it is!

Hi Lydia, I just joined and posted today, and all because of you! I was seaarching the sites and when I came here and read this poem, it blew me away. Your writing is so very good, and I love your use of similes and metaphors, amazing. I read more and found all of them so wonderful.

I don't know if you have time to help me a bit, but I do have an important question. I don't know how to go about enlarging my picture to put above my poem, and then have a border connecting the two. I asked in two places of the Forum, but it looks as if they don't answer much there.

Being new, if you have any suggestions that could help me, I sure would appreciate! I'm so glad I came here and found you. I'm getting more excited to write more now after reading you. Thanks so much!

Hugs,
ArtGal (Sharon)

A poem filled with the vivid images that are the hallmark of your poetry, Lydi. I enjoyed reading your words again - keep that pen flowing! And the presentation is exquisite, too. I love your style.
