in the very heart of poetry


“How they had dreamed


he and she…

how they had planned,

and laughed, and loved.

They had lived for a while

in the very heart of poetry.”


~ Elizabeth von Arnim


Elfje:    (Cinquain)



pulsating rhythm

without a murmur

physical, emotional, mental, spiritual





Jack Frost almost bit

the sun warmed earth held its ground

spring flowers blooming




the journey with no destination
growing and learning along the way
the soul exists in every location
the mind creates home and away

where am I really
when I think I am lost
comfortable and contented ideally
normal is akin to being star crossed

today is a luxury I must not lose
the moments to savor and relish
doing God’s will I cannot refuse
avoiding the self centered and selfish

today I will live in the present
lessons from the past not forgotten
avoiding the issues of discontent
joys and pleasures to enlighten

gratitude for a mind that is free
and to have lived in the heart of poetry
