Maxine Smith

Through The Pages

Through the pages

From words we meet

Unshackled from chains

Unclasped from pain

Freed from my cage

To you I retreat 


My heavenly escape 

The place I lay safe 

Soothing poetic rescue 

My dreams you fall into

Awakened by lyrical bliss

Rainbow shimmering down with a kiss


  • myself and me

    Through the pages, you get healing. beautiful read.

      A lovely description of our “heavenly escape”. I believe poetry to be the best art form. There are so many possibilities.
