Delva 'daughter of the poet'

sheer delight radiates from the core of her being

she is content beyond belief, satisfied in her surroundings

with pen in hand, she pauses thoughtfully over the paper

inviting words to jump from her pen to paper, she creates worlds

under her toiling hand, characters, themes and feelings

all meld into a sweet symphony of sounds

as the words clash and mangle in beautiful ink splashing across the blank page

she spins her tales of old times and new, awaiting the daylight and her

inspiration to fill the black page with inky resilience

bearing witness to the imagination's jewels
