Gallery_David Smith- Like pastel paintings hanging
In the archives of my mind,
I retrace the subtle strokes
Of once-lived passions in my life;

Like the sometimes-maybe lovers
Who have wound their lives with mine,
Adding to the cotton canvas
The warm hues of their sighs.

Like a prism brought to bare
On a spectrum made of time,
My thoughts reflect the shades
Of evening tears and broken lines.

Like a masterpiece of essence,
A kaleidoscope design,
My life is made of memories
That keep turning in my mind.

Listen to David Smith and you listen to the heart of a former man from maine that has fallen in love with moss hung magnolias. The sizzle in the southern summer has seeped into his cold yankee blood and really heated up his passion for all and anything southern.

I will say David is a delightful writer and has really found his place in the literary world. Could be the south has imported another Falkner with a southern twist of O'Conner and just a whiff of good old Mark Twain. Hang on to your pen Dave and keep the good stuff flowing.
