Richard Lighthouse - One Poem

Poetry 101

how do i look so far?

i am as alive as you.
possessing consciousness and purpose.
we are structures that
seek others.

i exist that you might study yourself
and creativity’s nature.

i am a bookmark in time
holding frozen emotion
gifting students
with self-fragments and meaning.

i live in volumes of intensity.
expressing mankind’s ideals,
and gathering the mental children
we nurture and grow.

bring me close.   smell the ink.
tell me what you    feel.

Richard Lighthouse is a writer and artist. He has been published in numerous journals worldwide and resides in Houston, Texas.
