Poets Portraits

Poets Portraits this month is for an absolute star. Where I come from we’d call him ‘A Beast’; a fighter, a man of strong will and courage cause that’s exactly what he is. Oh, and his writings not to bad either.

Walt Page over at Walt’s Writings, also known as the Tennessee Poet has done it all. On his family tree he’s held every position from husband to grandfather, uncle to cousin. He’s been a Business Man, Musician, Veteran but by my reckoning a Poet all his life and a damn good one to boot.

I’ve followed Walt’s blog now for quite a while and I love everything he writes. This particular verse is close to my heart as it represents a culture I hold dear; Celtic Pride. So without further ado I present to you:

A Celtic Warrior

Inside me
Lives the Spirit of a Celtic Warrior
A Highlander
Killed in the Battle of Culloden
April 16, 1746
I am the keeper of the Gaelic culture
Carrying on the Highland Ways
Fighting for what is right and good
I am from the clans
From fire and forge
As sharp as the blade of my sword
Protecting those who cannot protect themselves
I ride the winds of time
I sail the seas of broken dreams
I am the finder of lost prayers
I have died many times
But I always return
For this is who I am
A writer
A poet
A Celtic Warrior

    To The Mush from the Hill – From ~The Poet’s Poet~ You could not have picked a finer example for your “Poet’s Portrait” than the venerable Walt Page. Congratulations, long life and good health to you both.
