It Is There

.

“. . .criticism is to poetry

as air is to a noise:

it allows it to be heard;

and even if we can’t see it

or feel it, it is there,

shaping how we hear.”

.

aroma

wafting through

the open window

nature’s most fragrant perfume

jasmine

.

Haiku:

.

morning dew befalls

hiding natures fall colors

tears dried by the sun

.

Poem:

.

poetry is prayer and meditation
asking for guidance without citation
hearing answers, God’s narration

experience guides how you think
inspiration supplies the missing link
words that make the writer look prink

when facing a blank sheet of paper
don’t argue with the Great Creator
just trust the ultimate magic maker

words that appear out of the rainbow
sit back, listen, go with the flow
watch the lines begin to grow

oh what pleasure to hear the rhyme
heavenly bells begin to chime
word pictures become poetry sublime

everyone is a poet they say
each in their own very unique way
just sit, write and pray

Just One Person

.

“The purpose of poetry

is to remind us /

how difficult it is

to remain

just one person…”

.

― Czesław Miłosz

Elfje:     (Cinquain)

.

dexterous

many hats

will try anything

with multi faceted personality

confused

.

Haiku:

.

morning chill brings fog

fall colors portend winter

mother natures sleep

.

Poem:

.

The mind is the key
To a Higher Power I plea

I am but a steward of theUni-verse
Deigned not to do the perverse

Mother nature to protect
Nor my body to neglect

Acknowledging that the soul dwells
beautifully adorned in light pastels

In the heart of all who pray
For however long or short their stay

The mind is the enigma
Choices are what grow the stigma

The mind must humbly respect
So that the body and soul will reflect

A life that could not be any greater
A life that is worthy of the Creator
