A poem is a door to the imagination that
allows you to dream and be awake
at the same time.
700+ poems in pencil and ink on paper
To write the book that teaches you
How to wake to the dream,
You must become a wanderer.
Slow and deliberate,
Your life must become the story
That is the truth within the myth.
There are no words on a page here,
But a book holding the logos of you Life.
Open the pages of this book
That they may become for you
Their Truth in your ability to become them
Their power rests in the imagination
