Timeless as Basi --- Grand as the Mayon

Poems are basi and spoken
they soothe the paired heart
They awaken ... or numb the soul
to feel ... or to be shut from the world.

A poem, once expressed, thus, becomes ageless as wine.

Prose, regardless of its magnitude, 
can be as grand as the Mayon,
it may be pleasant to behold, with its form and font, 
but out of these may be spewed out
molten words that expose and admonish. 

Prose is thus, like the Mayon beheld with awe and, at times, caution.

Poems and prose are such, as their creators are...
souls timeless and splendid. ~
