Loons & Fools

This is a free style poem I was inspired to write today. Hope you enjoy!

Loons and fools
They go together~I guess
If it's all the same to you
I will play a fool
On the edge of darkness
Waiting for your luminous smile to spread

Some profess themselves to be wise
Not I
I am young drifting in wide sky
The creatures they preach
And God speaks
I have but a small place in this life

The loons and fools
They go together~I guess
And confess their thoughts and dreams
Somehow we all coalesce

The fool on the edge of darkness, waiting ...
I am thinking that the loon is nearby since
they go together ~ I guess.
I'm teasing a little, W.B. But I haven't
figured everything out in this cute little
poem quite yet. :)
Not wise here also in my small place.

Your words are always so beautiful, and put together so intricately! Are you working on a poetry book? If not, you should be!

You are so fucking amazing. Your wordplay is like... lots of pretty things and metaphors for pretty things. But more importantly than that, you're always saying something striking or heartfelt or both.
