Poem - Balm Extended

The poem “Balm Extended” is about the power and legacy of writing of all types.


Balm Extended

How many words would it take
to exclaim the breadth of life
something more the mundane
against the range of rainbow space?

reassurance becomes the grail
from the bard or minister
each with a tool near at hand
holding letters to be heard

those exclamations in holy text
ask their due with curt distress
as the statements fall too short
of the needs for spectrum’s dreams

the poet’s muse responds in kind
fills the gap where creeds are blind
with a comfort the lost long seek
a balm extended as souls are freed.
