On finding Truth

On finding Truth


It was while out seeking


He did stumble and find



Although now fading

He did see fit to save it

To a single page


Henceforth he shall be


Not as a lover or a legend


But as a poet who once

Poemed and penned both

Love and universal truths

      I shall continue searching for as long as these paths and my feet do allow... thank you kindly

            i hope (probably in vain) that my work will endure and will champion love and universal truths long after I inhabit the long box - fine work as always Neville.

            • Neville

              I am sure that wish will eventually be granted... not for a long time tho .... cheers Michael..

              This is very good! Now you can teach me what you've learned!

              • Neville

                be careful what you ask for ..... in the interim tho, I thank you & true Christina8.... N

                Gibran or Rumi? TBH there's so many of the greats in who's shadow we impart our truth.

                • Neville

                  there are indeed DA..and here I am thanking you kindly for reminding me of my own inadequacies 🙂

                  Contemplative and reflective.

                  • Neville

                    that will do nicely.. many thanks BDJ...

                    Those truths must always be seen by those in the future.

                    • Neville

                      Now that's a thought, something for us all to look forward to.. cheers buddy.... N

                          so you too, my friend...
                          a falsetto serenade
                          for wannabe scribblers
                          penned - as ever
                          so subtly poignant

                          • Neville

                            .............. How kind you are my friend and I thank you for it and truly ... All Good Things, Neville
