in the very heart of poetry

.

“How they had dreamed

together,

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)

beat

pulsating rhythm

without a murmur

physical, emotional, mental, spiritual

heart

.

Haiku:

.

Jack Frost almost bit

the sun warmed earth held its ground

spring flowers blooming

Poem:

.

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
