Today the sea is calm.

Shadows move on the sand.

Tonight the winds blow.

The moon on the water.

Moon beneath the winds.

Stars stay on the night.

Poetry, What Is It?   4 comments

Decoding Poetry

Poetry
What is it?
Is it not all things
Feeling?
Thoughts?
Ideas?
Wisdom?
Beauty?
Music?
Art?
in human existence?

Is it not all things
Love?
Hate?
Despair?
Fear?
Greed?
Charity?
of human experience?

Yet,
some claim
the words of poetry,
as if anointed
announcing to the world,
“I know the code!”

Poetry is not code,
allowing entrance
only to a few
fettered and packaged
for the scholarly.

If I experience
my own life
in the words another,
it is poetry –
for it is I
who holds the code
to my existence.

In the end,
there is no right
or wrong answer –
poetry is like dancing,
if it feels good,
do it!

“In and out, in and out.
The seagull cries.
Colors blend and wash ashore,
Drifting in from beyond the skies.”

“It was many and many a year ago, 
         In a kingdom by the sea, 
   That a maiden there lived whom you may know 
         By the name of ANNABEL LEE; 
   And this maiden she lived with no other thought 
         Than to love and be loved by me.”

— from the poem, Annabel Lee, by Edgar Allen Poe

Joy braving the wind and cold temperatures.

To Make Soft . . .

Words,
words are nothing
Feelings,
feelings are everything
Struggling,
struggling to share feelings
Placing,
placing petitions of desire
Door,
to the door of your heart
Shut,
shut not the door
Love,
love will break the heart
Scorn,
scorn not what we do
Looking,
looking for peace of mind
Truth,
truth will set us free
Explaining,
explaining not what is real
Complicated,
to complicated to follow
Knowing,
knowing not our time to go
Lifetime,
lifetime is no time at all

This is a poem I wrote five years ago when we were on the Outer Banks of North Carolina (April, 2008). In a few weeks we will return for another brief visit and in Virginia — hopeful the weather will be better.
