A poem needs a home…
a place to snuggle warmly
while whispering its beauty
into the world.

A poem needs a listener…
one who hears with the heart
and detaches with completeness
from logic and need.

A poem needs a lover…
a gentle soul that allows
the quiet stirrings to take hold,
caressing the vision that forms.

A poem needs a dreamer…
to take its existence
and paint life into it –
a colorful palette of hope.
