Powers That Be
Powers That Be

Copyright Michael T. Perrault

A natural desire

Pulling me towards the page

Drawing my attention

To the podium on stage

Such precision and purpose

Penned into every rhyme

Spilling my guts instinctively

Time after time

Messages and metaphors

Hidden in a phrase or word

Silent poetry to become read

As a voice often unheard

What enables me to do this

Is the fact that I go blind

When I reach a certain mindstate

And the pen controls my mind

Unpredicted focus

Deep; setting my body free

I can't help but bow to Wisdom

And the Powers That Be...

Dear Mike-
I was amazed I've never commented on this-
Tonight I was going through some of the poems in my favorites and hit this-
Looking at the date it was posted, it completely
made me realize why you are one of my most
respected and admired writers-
The depth of your writing tells me that at your
age the well you drink knowledge from is deep and eternal-
May the waters of Shangri~la you flood into your
words forever continue to enhance the vision of
all who are fortunate enough absorb its portrait-
Best Wishes to You and Yours~
