~The Poet Doctor ~

I,
Am the scribe,
The poet doctor, the truth seeker,
The beguiler
In search of whatever
You
May be after..

That,
With my words
I may
Illuminate,
Let moving pictures
Grow,
Subtly,
In your mind's
Eye..

So,
Once I know it
Then,
I can paint it
And save it
Forever,
Marinating..

So,
To lay it down
That you,
May pick it up..

I,
Am the scribe
The poet doctor
I,
Am in search of
Whatever,
You ,
May be
In need of...

Hey T...Writers can be like doctors in prescribing in words what someone needs to hear to connect, or feel, or be inspired.  Poets have the difficult job of translating the world around them by how they see things....and hoping in that process they can heal someone with their words, or at least give them a new way of looking at things in life.  I think the words of a poet oftentimes more than not also serve to heal the one writing them.  The poet takes words that become moving pictures and scenes in the mind that become a three dimensional concept.  It is one of the most moving arts, in my opinion, and why I love poetry so much.   Great work, T.  Love n Hugs, C xo

Hi TERRY!!......I know you're exaggerating a little.....I do have a tendency to write on some rather outlandish subject matter... or I take simple subject matter and make it strangely my own...... if that makes any sense (smiles)......thanx so much your kind words dear poet sister!!.... Lots of Love to you and yours!!.......T xo

My Dear Tony,

Actually, it is me who perhaps misinterpreted the gist of your powerful poem, for I thought you were alluding to being controlled by one's Id.
Of course, in great esoteric works such as many of yours, readers will always have their own take.

Love you Bro,
Larry xxx
