Poetry of Life

There was calm neath the palm tree, complete serenity,
But then you blew through in bending wind, transcending,
Offering no salaam, only aplomb at your sudden arrival;
Then you did flow like the tidal wave, but… where now?
After such glorious flow of exciting show, you’ve only left…

Line upon line so finely interwoven
And breathed across the Cosmos
Into heart sifted and adrift alone
But not made of stone in flesh
And bone, but rather radiant
And supple in rhyme and rhythm
With the multiverse of your poem

But there is the grander Poem interwoven in the Universe
To nurse hearts and souls that ne’er depart from the path
Of fine poetry in potency in probity of soul so knowingly
Open to Truth of Love that never fades in blight of night;
This is…

Poetry of Life


Note: First published in mid-June 2016, now republished (again) due to some rather unexpected renewed interest as well as for the enjoyment of new reader-followers. I would now count this as, perhaps, one of my best offerings. Blessings to one and all!

      1. Then let’s let the mystery remain, yeah? But then let me tell you, all three verses are stand-alone poems, the final verse certainly being the loveliest poem I’ve read in a while. Maybe because I’m so devoted to poetry and also because I confess it speaks to me (well all the three verses are personal to me, You know that). And I can’t help quoting it here again..just as i dont think I’ll be able to help writing a verse back in my style.

        I’m writing something in response. Don’t go too far off. You’ve moved me yet again, dear friend.

  1. Breathtaking! (rehearsing in my head: inhale, exhale, inhale, exhale… 😀 )
    Your poetry because it is rich in allusions, imagery, faith, and it is intellectual- and I love it! 🙂
