POETRY  by Frank Sheehan



The Calling

from The Poet's Notebook, page 15
Petaluma, 2012


Live like a poet
You’ll write like one
was the advice from a sage

alone in the
porcelain light
sparked by

Burned with the
holy fire
of passion
Spirit is at play

With manifest multiform
the language
of the flesh

in the enactment
of a dream
before my eyes
enveloped by

our thoughts, free
in front of
all the world,
a manifest destiny.
