Ever Upwards There are dreams of another place, where trails traverse between worlds, under an exquisite sun, so shining, glowing as the ground's breath unfurls. It's a golden mist beyond defining. The hazards of this world's memories, and the mutterings from pine to pine, challenge and grace steps worth taking, to see monuments of a true heart's shine. A tender hearted trail is a hike of aching. In a beneficent valley they merge, the divergent geographies of our lives, where the watersheds send our words, as rivulets to become a river that thrives. Life's dreams lead our beautiful eyes ever upwards.

...tagged by @whiskeyandpens for a #sayitagainsaturday @Regran_ed from @eas.writes - ...The Solitude in Trees The solitude in trees, bestows a peacefulness, deep in the soil and the breeze. The cumulus swaying, emerald tapping leaves, swoon at the sun's warm sayings. The air’s fragrant silence, and the pine needled hush, quell all loud defiance. The tall, confident trees, sigh, quietly being, content in their slow down dreams. The unwavering pace, of the world's carousel, is bright lights and vulgar grace. The calm is standing strong, above noisy pretense, in roots unmoved to belong.

The Moment I took the moment, long before it happened, I placed it within my sight, wrapped it with imagination, hopes, and dreams, to keep it bright. I took all of the light, every beam I see each day, gathered it all into a sphere, pressed softly into the moment, within my heart they hum and cohere. If the moment occurs, I'll be prepared and understand, the fulfillment of a lifetime of wishes, I'll be happily paralyzed with smiles, then move on with a heart full of blisses.

...tagged for a #totalreposttuesday by @whiskeyandpens. So.... @Regran_ed from @eas.writes : #misswhiskeymademedoit . _____ Bouquet There are flowers of the ground, adoring the sun, hugging its rays, frolicking on freshened, rainy days. I've seen flowers adorn the sky, kissing the sun, their halos aflame, and rainbow petals strumming the rain. There is a blossom that defines all others, She's a fairy spirit among nature's powers, She is the core essence in all the flowers.

The Wide Open Heart The wide open heart, shines like all the sun's rays, whistles through difficult winds, and bleeds on thorn filled days. The wide open heart, travels upon paths of grace, steps past the games of stone, and arrives with dreams still in place. The wide open heart, mentions nothing under disguise, listens pleasantly to deceptions, and knows they are the unwise. The wide open heart, seems simple in complex games, rolls no bones nor misleads, and desires love's truth, and flames. The wide open heart, can implode in a moment, becomes a bastion of the will, and hardens in the pain of torment. The wide open heart, stands exposed to each element, strengthens in time's soft patina, and holds hands with the firmament. The wide open heart, wants you to know all things, wants to talk with no restraint, and knows honest hearts grow wings. The wide open heart, knows that true fairness is gain, watches the future approach today, and despairs as others avoid fair blame. The wide open heart, can spill blood like it's raining, bears the lacerations of agony, and still remains self sustaining.

Dark Start To Morning I Bask in the sun, grown dirty in the train window. That fire is kneeling down, grunge swallowing its dimming crown. Ungentlemanly jostled to and fro, I sense gravity twirling with glee. The wheels wobble between fast and slow, prattling while trying to exclaim, their life never knew a collapsing shame. Will that yonder, depressed bridge, support this over stressed train? Or, will it decide it's just been too boring? Riding along on this old rusted toughness, perhaps I'll view the sun once again, beyond tomorrow's dark start to morning.

A Heavy Kind of Blue Hunger deceives me, making old desires seem new, some indefatigable with context, others insatiable with respect, all currently fogged in a truth. My present moves forth, shivering and shaded by the past, moping in my decisions, holding a heavy kind of blue. EaS -tagged by @whiskeyandpens for #hunger . The tag has inspired a few different works. We'll see where they go. #ArtlixirPoetry #ArtlixirSpoken #ByMePoetry #HerHeartPoetry#artlixirlive #creativewriting #freeverse #heavypoetry #igverse #literature #notpoppoetry #poem #poetry #poetryclub #poetrycommunity #poetryisart #poetryisnotdead #poetsofig #poetryofig #poetsociety #writing   #writingcommunity #writershigh
Haven’t posted in a while so here’s something for you guys💕 New Music later this month 😈
For those not familiar with the novel To Kill A Mockingbird, Boo Radley is the extraordinarily reclusive neighbour. He is referred to throughout the book but never seen until he emerges (spoiler alert) briefly but critically in the final scene. #poem #poems #poetry #poet #poets #tokillamockingbird #harperlee #booradley #poetrycommunity #rhymingpoets #4linepoetry #4linepoem #verse #igverse #writer #writers #word #words #writing #written #writtendown #instapoem #instapoet #instpoetrygram #instapoetry #writersofinstagram #writersofig #writersofdistinction #writersoftheworld #inspiredbyliterature
Words are a surface tension between the currents within and the calm outside. Comfort The windows are being pushed wide open, welcoming the swaying trees with my hello. There is comfort in the fall's whistling breeze, like the quick smile of some rambling fellow. The tightened screens sieve unpredictability, so I'll remain in the comfort of a new chair. The burden in my heart makes me too heavy, encapsulating myself from what's out there. The will to move comforts some future day. The haggardness of now hugs my chest tightly. Through the brightest days I hear friendly calls. Yet, I must console a heart beating unbrightly. I'll care deeply for these roots I've inspired, protruding from my soul, I'll remain stable. Smiles are possible but in sorrow I'm attired. Wisdom instructs that comfort is more than a fable.

...tagged by @whiskeyandpens for a #ThrowbackThursday . It's fall in these parts. This is a throw back to a better spring. @Regran_ed from @e_a_s_ . "Indifference", an imayo. . Indifference . Pure curvaceous petals bloom, she awakes her smile. Sun’s love of purity’s shine, ends her cold exile. . Her arms crave to coddle spring, she wants to remain. There's indifference in time, its briefness has pain. . EaS . ...My submission for day 9 (letter I) of the poetic forms journey led by @areadingwriter with fellow travelers, @flightofpoesy , @whiskeyandpens , @thesoulscribbles , and @lecosymittens , and more poets everyday! Don't forget to use the tag #ALetterADay . . The Imayo is: a 4 line poem. syllabic, written in 12 syllable lines broken by caesura after the 7th syllable. . The Imayo is associated with song, (recitation in a high pitch) and originated with the common people in folk song. But by the Heian period it was embraced by the Imperial court. This folk art evolved with the influence of Imperial aristocrats and famous courtesans or Shirabyoshi dancers incorporated the Imayo into their performances. One type of Imayo is used in Kabuki, Japanese theatre. . Pic credit: me.

...tagged for a #repost by @whiskeyandpens and @littlemissbadraconteur. Thanks ladies. @Regran_ed from @e_a_s_ Two Trees My sky lined eyes, nestle within two trees, standing subtle, in smooth prairie weeds. The touch of the hill, lends a curve to each stone, and it's there my skin, is scraped clean and honed. The relic polishing breeze, twirls with my breath, and lends a new aspect, to my heart's desire for rest.

Hello. Here are a few haiku after a longer than expected absence. The pictures are from a recent fly fishing trip to Idaho. There's more to fly fishing than fishing. I haven't written as much as I expected since logging out. The words are still there but a focus, or something else, is missing. I'm in no hurry to figure it out. Several poems have started and stalled. I enjoy the feeling of not pressuring myself to write. The feeling isn't unpleasant nor unwanted. I'm in a decent mental place and will just write as it strikes me. I wish I could share this sensation with you. Perhaps some words will make more sense of it soon enough. Oh, and this IG thing isn't what it used to be. 😊 #ArtlixirPoetry #ByMePoetry #HerHeartPoetry #InstaHaikuGram / #haiku #haikuoftheday #haikuofinstagram #igverse #instahaiku #notpoppoetry #poetry #poetryisnotdead #poetscommunity #poetssociety #poetsofinstagram #realhaiku #writing   #writingcommunity #writershigh
Inspired by angrydan I've created #limericksversushaikus to address the question "which re better, limericks or haikus". As Harry Hill would say "Fight!" If anybody would care to pick a dog in the fight and make a post I would be most tickled. #limericks #haiku #haikus #haikusofinstagram #haikusoninstagram #ighaiku #ighaikus #iglimericks #igverse #humourouspoetry #humourousverse #funnypoem #funnypoems #funnypoetry #poetryclub #poetry #micropoetry #poetrycommunity #poemsofig #poem #poems #poemsporn #wordsmiths #wordsmith #wordsmatter #writersofinstagram #writerscommunity #haikusversuslimericks
Poem on page two. My second effort inspired by my August bank holiday trip to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park. Turns out David Attenborough has been missing a trick all these years. I've seen loads of lions taking down zebra and wildebeest on the Serengeti but never one simply standing side on to me and effortfully roaring. Awesom. #yorkshirewildlifepark #poem #poetry #poet #writtendown #writtenword #lionpoem #lionpoet #lionwriting #animalwriter #animalwriting #animalpoetry #animalpoem #shortpoems #shortpoetry #shortpoem #igpoetry #igpoem #igverse #lionroar #lionroars #lionroaring #words #wordsmiths #wordsmith #writerscommunity #writer #writerslife #writers #writers_den_ #
Being the "uneducated layperson" that I am I only recently became acquainted with the word dissemble which the dictionary defines as "to conceal or disguise one's true feelings, nature or beliefs". To a greater or lesser extent we all do this almost daily. The problem explored in the poem is this makes it very difficult to understand your own life story. Who made the decisions that affected you and why? You will never know. #poetryclub #poetry #poetryofinstagram #poetrycommunity #poetryporn #poetrygram #poetry_addicts #poet #shortverse #shortrhyme #shortwriting #tinypoem #minipoem #littlepoem #nanopoetry #micropoetry #littlepoem #dissembling #dictionarycorner #igverse #igwritten #igwriters #igwriting #igwriter #writersofinstagram #writerscommunity #wordsmith #wordsmiths #wordsmatter #pickyourwordswisely #pickyourwords
Runs to two pages. It was reading an article in the Sunday Times magazine that sparked this. As per the title it is a bit of a freewheeling rant but hopefully it articulates what I wanted to say. #writing #writingoninstagram #sundaytimes #fakedorgasms #femaleorgasm #menandwomen #rant #writtenrants #wordrant #rantpoem #opinionpiece #rhymes #rhyming #rhymingpoetry #rhymingwords #wordsmith #wordsmatter #wordsmiths #igverse #igpoem #igpoetry #igpoet #igpoets #igpoetsociety #igwriters #igwriter #writer #writercorner #writercommunity #writersofinstagram
I'll be away from IG for some time. Exactly how long, I'm not sure of. I'll return when it feels right. I apologize for my lack of response to recent tags. / The need to disengage is creeping into me. Heeding that sensation is important. Too many things in my head, and soon its heaviness bends the neck too much, and I like seeing tall trees, reflecting windows, mountains and the sky. It has become time to activate a filter. I will logout of IG in a few days. Therefore, I won't be aware of any tags, etc. I promise to catch up. / To those who have become unmet friends, or anyone else, if you wish to contact me, please do. You can reach me via the email in my profile. I'll haphazardly check in on it. / Many of you have been gracious with your time and comments. I thank you. I feel a pleasent responsibility towards you. I am jubilant that anything I've written can entertain, or otherwise have an affect on a reader's imagination. / Once again, I honestly thank you, and will see you again. / The #sleeping #fractured #selfie is for D, @littlemissbadracontuer. / #ArtlixirPoetry #ByMePoetry #HerHeartPoetry #InstaHaikuGram / #haiku #haikuoftheday #haikuofinstagram #igverse #instahaiku #notpoppoetry #poetry #poetryisnotdead #poetscommunity #poetssociety #poetsofinstagram #realhaiku #writing   #writingcommunity #writershigh
Y si se trata de escribir, primero que nos parta un rayo, que ya después, a trozos, intentaremos reconstruirnos.
So, @littlemissbadraconteur and myself were chatting about rabbit holes, and how they create their own special type of echo. Eventually we got to talking about words and a haiku evolved. Then siblings of that first haiku were spawned. Now, like gremlins in a rainstorm, they're everywhere! Damn Deanna, you're one of my favorites. Your way with words is truculent and cozy. @littlemissbadraconteur & @e_a_s_ #ArtlixirPoetry   #ArtlixirSpoken #ByMePoetry #HerHeartPoetry #InstaHaikuGram / #haiku #haikuoftheday #haikuofinstagram #igverse #instahaiku #notpoppoetry #poetry #poetryisnotdead #poetscommunity #poetssociety #poetsofinstagram #realhaiku #writing   #writingcommunity #writershigh
