I invite you in to

this private thing—

this grand tradition 

that is the poetic way, 

the imagination space

in a sheltered world

away from the glare

of intrusion’s stare.


Here you can explore

whatever you wish–

hidden beautifully in

the secret of words;

and play is the key

as the feelings and

words flow without

explanation’s need.


I invite you in but

it is you alone who

create this freedom 

place where no may 

enter accept if given

the key to this oasis–

your sovereign home.
