I Come From There

I come from there and I have memories
Born as mortals are, I have a mother
And a house with many windows,
I have brothers, friends,
And a prison cell with a cold window.

Mine is the wave, snatched by sea-gulls, I have my own view, And an extra blade of grass. Mine is the moon at the far edge of the words, this is real poetry, use of words, the feelings it conveys and the philosophy..... u teach are marvellous..dear poet. tony

Born as mortals are, I have a mother And a house with many windows, I have brothers, friends, And a prison cell with a cold window. A soulful expression
