A Poem A Day (Keeps the Doctor Away)

Posted by lisaspoetryfromtheheart on July 11, 2012 at 7:30 AM

I decided several days ago that I wanted to share my words further afield. I know that poetry is a strangely intimate sharing and some people do not really approve. The disapproval extends beyond the self publication most poets have to indulge - unless they are famous for something else already, or truly capture the heart strings of a particular time to find themselves trending, willingly or unwillingly - in a world full of casual followers.

My poetry has always striven to be positive, even in dealing with the most negative of issues, and for some that approach is too rose tinted, but for me it is about a spiritual mastery of one's current life situation. Indulging negative experience with negative expression might trend more in the modern world, but the process of catharsis, however well received, might result in regression rather than moving forward. I hope to move forward always - I did with A Whisper of the Romantic in the Eye of God  and I hope my new work following my Father's sad death this year will continue this personal growth and learning. Once published of course I will share... Kindle is likely to be the medium though.

I have been sharing a poem a day on Twitter, and I think I should share them here too for those who find Twitter too ephemeral. Today's  reflection was Sea of Memory.... This is a romantic poem and what is wrong with that?

Sea of Memory….

Waves tremble,


On the dark granite Ocean

That is my mind.

A fond tide stirs them,

This, my love for you,

Will never end…

Hold me

Just an instant in your thoughts,

That I might feel once more

The tender hand of memory

On this -

Faint Heart of Darkness …

Think of me awhile with love,

So that your voice

May fill my soul with light -

And laughter -

As I strive to catch the Dream

That I would share

With One -

A vital part of me -

Who drives the steady

Force of Love

Through time, space

And Eternity

Until it finds its Peace

With You….
