One Voice (dedicated to SamIam)

Post by heinzs » Thu Mar 20, 2003 1:35 pm

One Voice

Perhaps a smatter of satire
will light the spark of reason's fire
Heaven knows that without wit
the darkness looms above spirit

A voice cries out on poets' page
to raise awareness of the rage
That we ourselves can only feel
expressing it to make it real

Though dark the day around may be
the words of wisdom help us see
By glowing with that inner light
to waken hearts and minds to fight

The poet's pen's a mighty sword
disguised as humor and absurd.

Oh yeah, this is a modified sonnet, for those who like to put a name to forms.

Great tribute to SamIam Heinzs...

By the way, anybody know where he is? Why is his post coming up as guest under his ID?
And as I watch you in this light
I never realized your eyes were full of
So many colors.

He's around periodically. The "guest" ID comes up under things posted in his old account which he had requested deleted. Then he rejoined as "jackspratt", which I later changed back to "SamIAm".
