Where the Mind

Where the mind
is full of eagerness
and the hand wields the pen,
Where words are chosen
with care, rhyme and reason
and the spirit is crushed
into shards like glass
by unseen dismantling forces,
Then springs of poems
gush out like rivers
molten ideas like fire
like lava from ‘canoes
And those restless striving
will spin on to perfection,
like the silken webs broken,
not discarded.
Where scorched
remains the heart that bleeds
with passions untold,
numerous,
then ;
my Beloved
Arise and spill
ink upon all that shatters
and build brick upon brick
the broken bridges together
