We can all Save the World

inspire

 

I think of poets as outlaw visionaries in a way.

 

All kids, when they go to school, are pretty good artists and dancers and singers and poets. All that gets buried, basically through being educated, or brainwashed.

Wishes for Sons – by Lucille Clifton

clifton_custom

I wish them cramps.
I wish them a strange town
and the last tampon.
I wish them no 7-11.

I wish them one week early
and wearing a white skirt.
I wish them one week late.

later I wish them hot flashes
and clots like you
wouldn’t believe. let the
flashes come when they
meet someone special.
let the clots come
when they want to.

let them think they have accepted
arrogance in the universe,
then bring them to gynecologists
not unlike themselves.

Nikky Finney (Quote Challenge)

*In every one of these haunting and hungry poems, Howell draws a map for how to enter the heat and dew of the human being, naked and facing the natural world, desperate to feel. I did not realize while reading Render how deeply I was handing everything over.

*My responsibility as a poet, as an artist, is to not look away.

Poet’s Bucket list

  • Stop running my pinky toe over on my office chair
  • kick it, kick the closet door and feel better
  • play more old school rap – and write to the beat
  • go on a writer’s retreat
  • stop browsing Netflix, twitter, Pinterest and write
  • laugh really hard and loud
  • Take long deep breaths and smell the world around me

For the Love of it

My one wing friend, it was not I but the wind.

From the mighty trees, you rumbled.

My heart has pieces that are no longer here.

You must be insane if you dare to keep flying.

I hear you singing, and flapping about.

Say it a little more

I love you.

Cry if you must,

with no regrets, lest fear tumbled home

And caging chains humbled their bars.

And mumbling dreams are forgotten.

Directions to Peace

country-road-covered-dirty-melting-snow-puddles-early-spring-30262065

My voice has joined the heavy cow skins -I can feel the earth. I’ve fought so hard not to fight. And yet this mud is cold. We are sinking and rising until (the earth) has had enough. I was told there are no cures for suffering. Desperate to be good, to be whole, to be found.

Visions

Philly

I see the ocean, fall –

in all it’s power.

I see tree roots, singing on their knees.

I see great wings soar.

I have seen wisdom, sculpt its cooling winds.

I have drawn baths for little dirty children.

And then I see -bottled prayers, visions

and tears too.♥

Ambiance of Love

 

rain walks

Electrical dreams are manifested,

Breaking down failures,

Sprouting in faith-

We are tiny miracles.

Over troubled winds –

Thriving through and through,

The sky will lift her sagging breast.

Tidbits of love will pour out – they’ll say it’s rain.

Sparks of laughter will cry and peace will come again.
