Words Appear on a Page

Salvador Dali's The Meditative Rose
Salvador Dali’s The Meditative Rose

Words appear on a page
releasing a bird from a cage
to fly into whatever may come
a brave heart beating to its own drum

Words appear on a page
unclothed and alone on that stage
unrehearsed lines dismissing fear
unafraid of how it may appear

Words appear on a page
expressing love and a dying rage
exposing pain and accepting truth
a deep ache it’s trying to soothe.

Words appear on a page
purging the heart like burning sage
looking towards a brand new dawn
closing a chapter and moving on.

(For Samantha)
