THE STORY BEGINS…

Once upon a time…

In a far away land, a man
of expressive heart
and gilded tongue,
had begun a quest
to say all that his eyes
refused to see. His heart
would in all ways find
the word or phrase
to fill his days with verse.
It could be worse,
but his verbal scimitar
he wields with such aplomb.
Upon his steed, his ink
bleeds across his virgin
page until all sage words
wreak havoc on its pristine
papyrus. Though valley and dale
poets prevail, leaving marks
on pages of their own.
Riding to rescue muses
held captive by a strangled mind,
to vanquish villains of verses
left undone – all battles won
by the strokes of his pen.
We live the fairy tale
writing without fail to assail
what lives in our hearts in rhyme.
Every happily ever after starts
with once upon a time.
