A Horizon Help

  • Welcome readers, I’m glad to present a collaboration poem I wrote with Aston Kamunde, a writer who I’ve written poems with in the past. When he gave me the draft for this poem, I was intrigued immediately. I had to be meticulous with editing and adding my contributions. With that said, I’m proud of the quality of this piece, and I hope you’ll enjoy it. Lastly, I included below Aston Kamunde’s blog site URL so you can check out his work. Copy the link into the web address or search his name on WordPress. As always, peace and keep it real.

The dawn began spreading faster and faster

Grasping a pen with hot fingers

Eyes radiating with focus

Staring at expressive hands

That wouldn’t relinquish determination

The sharp scrapping of his pen picking up strength 

The sunrise horizon his muse 

At first, the pen ran dry

But suddenly with much persistence

Words began pouring with great speed

Nothing to impede the message

Every stanza more exquisite than the last 

Dark quivering thoughts painted on an old canvas 

But with every passing minute 

All the dark spaces illuminated like a series of matchsticks

All anger growing watery and blended with sudden liberation   

Glutton for an intellectual feast 

Nourished with a new disposition

Every word made his pupils dilate 

The sunshine emanating on every corner of his page

He inhaled a cold draft of fresh air

Which brought forth a memory 

Of a friend from the past

Restoring balance and confidence 

To continue writing without inhibitions
