into colors that quench my thirst

for the something more

where imagination meets creation

where love erupts intelligence’s passion

my spirit is ALIVE

My heart pumps out not blood, but

  5. Tis the time of year to express the joys, the thanks, the good cheer…interesting format, though I must say the lime green made my eyes twinge! Creative and gracious bit of writing though, thoughtful and smile-inducing. Well done!

    Sometimes, just saying a simple ‘thank you’ makes one feel soooo nice about everything… I think this poem expresses that feeling very well..
