Brief Moments

How my heart soars on the wings of song Dances across the letters in lyrical prose Swims in lush colors of artist’s meadows Allows brief moments which I may roam Blink of an eye; I know what it is to free See more of my creative offerings and opinions at: Pen’s Might Philip Brent Digital […]

If Never I Would Leave You
