I LOVE smoke and sparks and soot and steel, Hot iron and sweat, Gleaming curves and working with my hands, Getting greased is in my basic nature, Wild rides my art and glory, Requiring a firm and knowing touch, Hearing the exploding whistle of a geyser of pure steam, All cherry-red and glowing.

Words are the mind's bridge - it's connection to the universe. Love is the heart's bridge - it's connection to all other souls. Loving words can work miracles. --------------------------------------- All of my published poetry is at: www.lulu.com/spotlight/coloringbookforallages
AquarianM: I'm so thankful for this quiet place full of solitude - and one of the best archives of my poems left online. Thank you, Rachelle for bringing me here back when you did.
