My Irritations, Aggravations and Inspirations

August 9, 2010 “love light”

“love light”

hot summer sun dies
night’s sultry veil surrounding
love’s light shadowing

flickering light glows
oily night darkly dripping
love’s light not dimming

love burns brighter still
though dark night grows heavier
love makes all lighter

  2. Arthur is depicted as a king in plate armor living in a grand castle, which places him more or less in the high Middle Ages….how is it possible that you live in Tennessee…writes poetry like you do, and not have some affiliation with that period???…listening to your voice…I shall crown you the King of my Western lore!!! BRILLIANT Mr.Harris…is all I have to say!!! ~ Red x

    • One of the first books I ever read was “The Story of King Arthur and His Knights” by Howard Pyle…I have always dreamed of being a chivalrous Knight,but a King? Oh my, hmmmmmm… perhaps it’s not too late after all. 🙂
      Thanks, Red.
