Strength In The Walk

Strong enough to walk beside you

It is there, that we are balanced.

Strong enough to follow you

For I honor your lead.

Strong enough to bear your burdens

I am there to lend my shoulder.

Strong enough to say carry me

For I may need to be cuddled for a mile.

    I’m excited to be finally posting online after all these years. There really is no mystique (sp) about it, is there? I just dropped by your blog and had to write. I’m a recent college grad, journalism major if you must know, and I love the art of photography. I’ve got my site up but it’s nothing to boast about yet. None of my stuff’s been posted. Soon as I figure out how to do that, I’ll spend the day posting my best pictures. anyhow just thought I’d drop a line. I hope to return with more substantial stuff, stuff you can actually use. SPG

    Hi Celestine,

    I haven’t been on my website for maybe 8 months or more, rarely am on net anymore. So I only just saw your fantastic poem you left. I came on your brilliant site to take a gander, and not only have you built a site that looks great, your peotry is really awesome. I have been too busy to write astory or anymore poetry, but had quite a few ideas that escape into airspace if not followed up. You’ve really got a great way of writing, and it’s very positive, warm, and expressive. It seesm you love nature too, through your writings.

    I will come back when my work settles down next week and take more time to read your stuff.

    Be happy,

      Hi Ellen, thanks for visiting the site and so glad that you like my poetry. I would be honored to be featured on your site. I did get a chance to visit it. It is a very nice site. Was there a particular poem that you are interested in. In addition, I am in the process of publishing one of my collections. Look forward to speaking with you soon. Celestine
