Ships of Souls

Tears
Drops
Splash
Into
The
River.

The img_1368_400
River
Staining
The sea;
Reaching
The
Distant
Shores;
The fragrant
Shores.


Tear
Drops
Of regret
Mingled
With
Chorizo
And the
Mateus;
Under the
Wafting
Strains
Of the
Soft
Seductive
Samba.

Mingling
With the
Desire
Dripping
From the
Mandolin.

Musical
Notes of
Regret
Casting
Ripples
In the
River of
My soul.

As I
Float
Away
On the
Ship of
Souls into
The horizon
Of my mind

This wonderful Poem took me into Watery depths and Sensory Energies of Mind, Hear, Soul and Body, dear Nikos.
I alos love the Artwork you created to go with it.
Since my Mother's passing (she, too, was an Artist) I have not (as of yet) been able to create any visual art. However, Words just keep pouring out of me - ha !
However, the Poetry and Art of yourself, and some other Poet/Artist friends are beginning to "jump start" those urges within me once more. Thank you, and thank you for your splendid Gifts and Talents, dear Sir.

Thank you dear Leah for your kind words. Writing for me is deeply ingrained within my soul, it is for me the observations of my subconscious of the world around me.Where as painting is like a lifeblood coursing in my veins; it is a necessary physical and cathartic act, and without it I have no serenity or balance. Look forward to seeing your artwork one day :)
