April Poetry Corner

A Moment In Time
By Gail Livesay

Surrounded by trees, wind chimes
sparkling in branches like fairies dancing,

I sit on the swing the soft mummer of your
voices as you talk and laugh on the deck.

The moon peeks through the
clouds and gently questions me.

I whisper, if only time
could stand still.

The moon whispers back, time must go on,
but you will always have this moment in time.

Air – Earth – Fire – Water

Earth revolves, evolves, resolves
Her issues with the universe,
Spawning her own children by
The million billion trillions.
Unafraid and unashamed,
Unabashed by circumstances,
She creates and recreates then
Reinvents herself.

Air to breathe the gift of life,
Air to bathe in sunlight’s glow,
Feeding, breeding, never needing,
Always yielding with the flow.

Fire raging unafraid,
Bold and brave its hunger feeds
Until its taming offers warmth
To satisfy the basic needs.

Water, water everywhere,
Giver, taker, miracle-maker,
Mystery of mysteries
Riding high upon her seas.

And all are tied and intertwined,
All dependant one on one,
All inclusive,
Always reaching for the sun.

Bubbling Friendships Unite
In The Bottle Of Time

In The Waters Of Now
Delicious Dreams
Sizzle In The Drizzle
Of Polarity
Future Rides
On The Back
Of Present’s

The Language of Love

Writers espouse a world of words and wrap them around a vibrant idea to embrace the emotion therein. Innovative themes capture poetic form and substance to be shared with willing readers who appreciate every syllable. The reader experiences the most profound of life’s adventures through outlandish characters, heroes and heroines.

Language is a gift from the gods and meant to be celebrated by a myriad of educated, literate and curious participants. Precious phrases are presented on the pages of books, articles, manuscripts and even scribbled post its.

Creative endeavors are headlined in festive categories. A literary genius wins an award. An audience of bookworms gathers at a black tie affair to hoot and holler in admiration of an acclaimed prose.

Witty words attract great wealth. Writers are revered. From greeting cards to novels, the human spirit embraces the language of love.
