I wrote this upon receiving a prestigious award from a very well known poet site. I am might even have to public speak (FEAR) but I will struggle through it like with my writing, especially with your support.

Blessing in the words that will take you on your trip
To the perfection within your own mind.
Let your mind flow with the power within
To express the awesome creativity to float with the universe
In the minds of the worlds readers
For the world does not exist without the eyes that feel

Blessing that the warmth you create
Will create the garden within you
That blossoms so much that you have to share it
With the readers eyes in awe
Creating those magic words
That creates visions within the expanse
Of an open mind dreaming

Blessings for the dreams you create in others
To see things in a different light
To envision a feeling that reaches in so deep
That the hurt is felt crawling inside you
To take someone so deep within
That they become bound
To only release them in the flight of a bird
Overseeing their expanse of sky
With such freedom
That their ever-seeing eye is energized

Blessings I say to you Poets individually
For it is up to you to spread the word
For I am just a pawn in a game
That uses words to share the thoughts within
Open those worlds you share
With those willing to read
Create the fantasies that will stand the test of time
Create in all temperatures
And in all emotions possible
In a million even billions of combinations
Create your own magic

Finally blessings I say to you poets
For the feelings of the world
Are always seen by the poets
In the reality of this world
A poet’s eyes are the true reflection
Of what society is about
For their eyes will share
Every feeling known to man
And then some
For the conscience of history
Will always be recorded in writing
Some of the most note worthy
In some sort of rhythm
Within the mind of someone so special
That they are called a POET
