Hey Janet! How’s your inspiration level? It’s already April! How’d that happen?
Love the poem and picture here.
That last line kinds of limits it, but that’s cool too.
This reply is after the fact, but I’d like you to know in all seriousness that great minds think alike, even good ones for that matter. Now I know you like Van, and that makes you an expert in music, too..;>
Couldl that be a fractal there?
How is hubby? That kind of emergency is trying, many have endured it.
hope all is well.
Hello Goatman and Welcome to Poetmeister. I don’t know if it’s a fractal, but I’ve corrected the link and if you click on the photo now it should take you to the artist’s site where you might be able to get more information. I came upon his site by accident and love what I found there. You might, too..:) Hubby-bubba is doing much better and I thank you so much for your concern! All is well. Do come back, grab a chair by the fire, and tea will be served promptly..:) And please leave a link to your blog, as well.
Love this poem and photo. I find that listening to music helps the writing flow when I’m working. I wasn’t too familiar with Van, but just listened to him on iTunes, and this album is wonderful.
For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food,
For love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)
My soul laid bare ..tread lightly, please ;>
This is where I plan to bare my soul for all the world to see - warts and all. I plan on letting it all hang out here, so to speak, not knowing exactly what direction it may take, but I hope you're along for the ride. If you are, you'll be respected and valued here for your poetic sensibilities. We can explore the content of our hearts and intricate workings of our minds, together. But above all else, I declare this place a safe haven from the slings and arrows of life that may be bent on foisting themselves in our general direction, seeking to strip all heart-felt and pithy profundities from our poetic souls. Mercy! Do I hear an Amen?! :>

Emily Dickinson Do you have a 19th century sensibility? Or are you an intellectual? Do you write a lot? Because it seems like you have a lot in common with classic American poet, Emily Dickinson. Read more...
