Inspiration; a poetic collaboration

I know we only advertised this collaboration one day in advance, but here it is:

Inspiration

By: Grace Y. Estevez & Francis Joseph LaManna

Francis

Awakened by the thunder,

And the rain,

So real-a-dream in my slumber,

Only memories remain.

Grace

Felt shaken, drenched in sweat,

Still sleeping yet awake

Try to steady my breadth

feel real, no longer fake.

Francis

Conscious reality now that I’m awake,

Brought forth from a world of dreams

Make no mistake

A spark of passion with golden beams.

Grace

Lights up my unsure mind

Then sparks within my heart

Stirred up and well defined

This moment marks the start.

Francis

An old-fashioned loose leaf canvas,

Sensational revelations in ink

Only wisdom and spark can grant this

Through artistical blends-woven in sync.

Grace

Fears cease and surrender,

Both tears and canvas dry

Inspired by splendor

To relentlessly try.

I hope you enjoyed reading this as much as we did creating it. Once again, I’d like to personally thank Grace Y. Estevez from the website Grace of the Sun. If you would like to read more of Grace’s work please visit https://graceofthesun.com/2021/05/05/gift/
