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

Paradiso

.

“It is difficult

to write a paradiso

when all the superficial

indications are that

you ought to write

an apocalypse.”

.

~ Ezra Pound

Eden

perfect love

heaven’s holy realm

the hearts inner circle

paradise

.

Haiku:

.

gentle cooling breeze

golden leaves begin to fall

fields yield their harvest

.

Poem:

.

mumbling through a foggy dream
sleep walking on a balance beam
haunted by many past indiscretions
practicing the giving of false impressions

never satisfied with the life I lived
envious of those who have so much to give
of material things I was jealous
resentful or those whose lives were zealous

found some steps to show me the way
a path that lead me out of the gray
lead by an unlikely band of kindred spirit
positive souls with spunk and merit

who knew that life could begin again
a reason to live, new purposes to attain
a disease that can be put into remission
a Higher Power’s will brought to fruition

ever mindful of the built in forgetter
off to a meeting to help me get better
always thankful for that fateful God incident
knowing that it was not a simple coincident

being positive, being the person my God wants me to be
a soul lucky enough to be happy, joyous and free
