Thoreau, Hawthorne, Alcott, Fuller, Emerson - by Bob Atkinson

Thoreau, Hawthorne,
Alcott, Fuller, Emerson
(c)2013 Bob Atkinson
inspiration takes place today
charged in form by yesterday
times of which we're not aware
of all small details of daily fare
poets leave a legacy
calm descriptions of greening trees
emotions so deep, near heart's feelings
all we've got of lucid dreams
in our times, many thoughts
of when, where and here abouts
most ideas pass into oblivion
tragic loss of truth and vision
poets document our lives
not time not dates, but sacrifice
truth in feelings, open display
of useful tidbits, funny sayings
add your feelings to the mix
your experience, your simple fixes
document all you see of life
help those not yet born survive
