Poetry Pause

Here are two poetry pauses. Some say that a poem a day is to the imagination as an apple a day or red wine (just a glass..) is to your health. So Cheers, Sante, Prost, Slainte to your health and I hope you enjoy.

A. The spoken word poem Click here to listen to a spoken word poem complete with baby giggle soundtrack…

B. and the only rhyming poem I have ever written as world premièred below.

One Rhyming Poem

Poet to the Angel said,
“Speak to me of love.”
The angel bowed her head
as she lifted high a dove

And teared as if to speak
some things to be true.
The words of love you seek
are best when you are blue.

For the hard heart to awaken
tis nothing better said
then after love’s forsaken
and your sad heart has bled.

Angel to the Poet said,
“Write to me of love.”
The Poet smiled instead
as he raised to gaze above.

And joyful began to write
some things to be true.
A rhythm of deep insight
to caress an inspired view.

For the soft heart to awaken
tis nothing better read
then words that are taken
from deep heart, not high head.

Then profoundly the Poet and angel at one agreed
After musing long on the common bond decreed
You miss100% of the hearts that never hear or read
so venture on both word and voice, fulfill our greatest need.
