Poems by James Nordlund

Five Easy Pieces

By James M. Nordlund

To thine own self be who, and

While you’re being what you are,

Stray not from this, your unfolding

Path and heart- where, how and

Why; forever unanswered.


By James M. Nordlund

Betwixt words and lines,

Poetry’s music fathoms

The depths of our heart,

The heights of our intellect

And imagination,

Breadth of our spirit,

Well of our soul,

Alluding to the unknown;

Saliently. For, the muse

But whispers, silently;

Moving in mysterious ways.

Painting’s music?

Inexpressible and felt,

Unknowable and experienced;

Of echoing images and silences.

Even the shadow

Speaks of the light!
