Rosetta stoned

You are Gaelic

beautiful, mystical,
lyrical, recognizable,
incomprehensible,
not easily translated

Yet I love to listen
to your rhythms with
heart, soul, eyes

you are a romance
language I can always
listen to, try to read,
knowing no matter
how much I read and
hear, I could never
be truly fluent in you

About poetluckerate

I am a poet, writer and teacher who moved from Minnesota to New Orleans in 2008 to help rebuild the worst public school system in America. It is a huge challenge to say the least. Now, after ten years, I have returned home to my native Midwest. Writing - in many different forms and ways - has saved me untold thousands in therapy bills throughout the years. Reading my writings may do either the same - or just the opposite - for you. Read at your own risk, as I do not offer writer malpractice insurance. ;-{) I hope you enjoy what you read here.
