What is the value of a woman
Filled with the wonder of you?
One who loves you despite all
Who never sees shortcomings
Just the grandness that is you?

Here is my published poem entitled “Michelangelo”. It has been printed in multiple publications:
“Michelangelo” by Fine Artist, Ana Livingston
Additionally, I have read this piece at poetry exhibitions as well as being a featured poet on the Suncoast’s own WTAN, Tan Talk Radio, here in Florida. I recited from memory on all occasions.
Poet Ana Livingston reciting her published poem “Michelangelo” to a crowd of poetry lovers at an outdoor poetry exhibition in Clearwater, FL.
“The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones that never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes ‘Awww!'”
From the novel “On the Road” by Jack Kerouac, American Novelist and Poet. Copyright © 1957
I claw at self-made walls,
For decades they’ve stood firm
My fragile stream of love
Now seeks its way, unearned.
