Colorful World (Tribute to Poetry Pages Poets)

Post by Travis » Thu Jul 19, 2012 10:04 am

You have taught me well
Your wisdom and words
Put wind in my sail.
And as I chart this ocean
These waves of emotion
Have touched my inner being
For now I'm seeing
All the splendor and color
Reaching me and
Teaching me
You have been encouraging and wise
You are the sun that will rise
Guiding me
Providing for me
A new day
As I take this moment
To say and write
How much you have colored
My world...

Cool! I think in line 4 you mean "chart" rather than "charter".
