Itís easy to get lost in thinking our goal should be mass consumption through commercial publication. But, for some of us, it is the reward of fewer numbers, the small handful, followed by other needful seekers, a minority suddenly realizing the power of language does indeed nurture the discovery of conscience.


Writers We

Ones

only few can know

even fewer choose to understand

 

Residing in a place

where movement of mind and spirit

roams the beyond of shadows

arresting the possible

forward to the obvious

 

Pursuing the why of what

that haven the inner-self finds comforting    

where once lurked but a dark flirtation

with that revelation beneath life’s facade

now of joy laboring fearlessly

amidst inner-light and vision

 

What Only Few Have Known

now reaches out to many who yearn to know

 

All that is necessary

is at our fingertips

ready to become a voice

for many of mute spirit

starving to escape

echoless halls of stagnation

conscious of their shackled impotence

yet unaware beneath the fear

expression awaits liberation

 

And so it continues

 

With pencil in hand

we return to the page

not as saviors

but as needful messengers

"...arresting the possible
forward to the obvious"

now that's saying it;

saying it, too, is:

"yet unaware beneath the fear
expression awaits liberation"

and the notion of 'needful messengers'
and not 'saviors' is, for me, right on!

and right on you go, Odin
