Full Of Poetry



The world is full of poetry.

The air is living with its spirit;

and the waves dance

to the music of its melodies,

and sparkle in its brightness.”


~James Gates Percival





water, air

conspiring to dance

sounds of the earth





bees hum in solace

birds sing to share God’s bounty

the lucky man hears




every day is beautiful
some days more so than others
rarely are the good parts reusable
the spirit never lacks for wonders

the poet, the dreamer
always chasing that illusive picture
trying to be as stunning as nature
the Great Creator is always the victor

does beauty have to be alive
by design the skies and seas do breathe
mind wide open sees more that the eye
the heart, the emotions do seethe

the poet tries to make the dead word come alive
the glorious battle between clever and nonsense
the mind may be spent but the soul will survive
at what level does the writer become conscience

does the days beauty wane when the sun sets
do the memories keep hope immortal
for the sake of serenity let us forget the questions
have faith, the answers will come through the open portal

the poet knows the poem never ends
the answers always create  more questions
perseverance always produces dividends
the mind is always open to suggestions

so today’s beauty I will accept
no conclusions to be made, no arguments to be raised
no mysteries to be solved, no secrets to be kept
only God, in all of His glory, to be praised
