Listening Advocate RLB


Street Light by jose alhambra


Listening Advocate RLB

One of two hundred?
I think not
Rather One

who opened 
with a golden key 

the door to a
 street cobble
stoned with
 winding words

petaled with soft chestnut 
blossoms falling
 

as poets met 
and

listened

to
 the 
words 
of


one


and one another

*************

Congratulations RLB – for many who began sharing on the original Street- you will always stand alone in a special place, on a mystical endless winding lyrical road…

  1. Pearl, this is perfect:) I agree that RLB reintroduced me to poetry and allowed us to pursue our own paths on the Street!

    Did you see some of the other people on this list? Interesting I think

  2. All right. "Uncle" she cried. And ditto to the lionmother's comment. I applaud RLB's name on the list as well.

    1. Haha Sharon... Awww hope that you didn't feel pressured in any way. I was serious what I wrote about "lists" and about the company that RLB found himself in ... my soft spot is as I wrote - that I there was a wonderful sense of poetry and comraderie in that original Street that will always hold a warm spot in my heart - :)
