Placerville, California, USA


Inspiration and Salience of Beauty
Optimism progressive face
Realities and dreams worlds apart
Out in other space
Hope stares out from its hiding place
Behind mask of the skeptical eye
It bleeds
Cynical citadel of imagination
In a cruel and heartless world
where Intellectual madness rules
The poor and hungry abandoned
In despair
While the opulent wallow in their
Seething greed
Poetry not from the mind cerebral
From the portals of the heart unfolds
It strolls until its steps are steeped
In the heart leaving Imprints
Upon the enlightened soul
