A Coat of Arms

.

“Every poem is a coat of arms.

It must be deciphered.

How much blood, how many tears

in exchange for these axes,

these muzzles, these unicorns,

these torches, these towers,

these martlets, these seedlings of stars

and these fields of blue!”

.

― Jean Cocteau

stars
and stripes
colors and symbols
past, present and future
flags

.

Haiku:

.

humidity climbs
summer sun climbs ever high
living seek cool shade

Poem:

.

the dawn awakens
new light shines bright
celebrated occasions
a day to highlight

all attitudes differ
to each their own
everyone loves a winner
time doesn’t itself postpone

stories have a reason
beginning, middle and end
the best are born during the silly season
the whimsy to transcend

the poet tries to hide the plot
the conclusion often missing
some lines just an afterthought
the language very forgiving

poetry, love and life
happiness an inside job
true emotions run rife
a new trinket for your fob

no story here
take what you need
like music to your ear
the imagination is freed

inspired ? seek a different space
always remember, you are allowed to be

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

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
