Quite likely. I think its ever the first invention. Human interaction and before that a personal interaction of mind and soul.

Thank you for reading the poem.

On quests of lingering soul.

if that is the future,
count me out
I'll go back to the past
where it's safer.

What on earth are you doing?
thinking of a poem?
getting a sun tan?

and...what about those old shoes?
what size do you wear?
maybe I can send you some new ones.

Hello my friend, thank you for stopping by and liking two of my recent pieces.. It's been a while since you posted a blog on here. I hope you are well and are still writing or at least still playing some music.. I had another listen to your audio gift again today and it felt so pleasant to hear as way back when you uploaded it I was in a different head space with my grief and my mind was full of noise. Thanks again for your support and kindness.. take care. Be well. Emer?

Poetry is most certainly in your blood as I can see from your latest offering The Bleeding Hour and also Greener Grass, The Fight and The Past, Present and Future. You write from deep within and from that place comes some beautiful verse. Thank you. Keith
