The Terrific Uses of A Tree

In Uncategorized on May 12, 2011 at 11:09 pm

Planted by crops to produce fruit,
Nourishing our bodies with Gods’ vitamins,
Oranges in the richest hue to peel,
Juice drips down the chin’s of children,
Apple pies baked during holidays,
The finest harvest from our tree’s,
Produced for paper and furniture,
Homes built to share family memories,
Students write on pages with their studies,
Books we cherish are printed at the press,
The multiple  and necessary use of the tree,
Take today to reflect on why it was created.

One poem for the International Biological Diversity Day coming up on May 22nd.(ecological uses on another poem)

I plan on tagging my other tree poems with that day.

The Four on Friday 13th

In Uncategorized on May 12, 2011 at 5:03 pm

On Friday the four will align in our universe,

Gods’ galaxy in his hand’s to move four planets.

 

Venus it it’s hues of bright oranges and yellows,

Resembling a flaming orb of fire,

It is the second brightest object in the sky besides the Moon.

Mars joins this group in ally with the other three,

This planet abounds with discoveries by man,

The seventh largest planet and fourth one from the sun.

Mercury then co-operates and decides to partake,

This planet is the smallest one in our galaxy,

It is considered a planet of orbit eccentricity.

Jupiter then becomes a part of this planet party,

It is the largest planet in our solar system,

One of the four Juvian planets along with Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.

The Artistry of Expressive Modern Dance

Their bodies vibrate in full expression,

A soulful rhythm of movements,

Ignited entirely by their inner being,

Dancing from their cores as a moving illustration.

The founding mother of modern dance, Martha Graham, reminds us that our bodies can express our emotions, thoughts, pains, longings or desires. 

Contorting flesh into a visual symphony,

Twisting and shaping themselves with passionate sentiments,

Enchanting viewers to share their personal experiences,

Embracing the journey of their artistry with other souls.

Transforming feelings into an artistic visual form to explore,discover and creatively express freely. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 

Inspired by Martha Graham on Google doodle today. I found myself drawn to learn more about this type of modern dance either as a spectator to share their lives, or even partake for internal health and physical exercise. 

Our Own Trees of Life

Many of us have a story similar to Jack,

Questioning our destined paternal heritages,

Searching for ourselves along the branches,

Traveling through our growth as green as those leaves,

Blossoms burst colors luring us to challenge our faith in God.

We can either sample God with the smallest nibble of  interest,

Deny he exists entirely, 

Or

 Digest his entire wholeness like the fruit that appears on some trees. 

The smallest seedling planted becomes that tree,

Flourishing in extravagant height and beauty to view,

Endless discoveries extend themselves on arms from the trunk,

Multiple roots sprout underground reminding us we are not alone.

Jacks’ parental quest and journey of faith is only a reminder of what many of us have either endured or are enduring.

A poetical ode to the movie The Tree of Life in the Cannes Film Festival.

I thought the picture perfect, a fairy on a limb of a tree reflecting..that is the description of the picture..reflection.

The Essence of Eccentric Ectasy

Raptured in an eccentric embrace,

Inhaling scents of their valued rarity,

Distinctive souls so scarce,

Perfumed in an essence of the unusual,

Enveloped in a mystique quality type of fume,

Invigorating creative and inspiring minds,

A performance of a passionate soul,

Flaming torch’s of a fascinating flair,

Anointing us all with exotic entertainment and company.

Dedicated to a story told to me by a friend of an eccentric senior neighbor full of life who runs around the apartment building anointing others with oil, dancing some sort of tango and is Spanish. ( I could see myself friends with this lady, sounds so much like me) 

God bless all of us who embrace our eccentric, intense and unusual but loving spirits to share with mankind. 

Delightful Dandelions

Dandelions bursting in a vibrant hue,

Emerging from emerald strands of grass,

Fertile flowers created by Gods’ hands,

Tiny orbs colored like the blazing sun.

Spring decorates lawns in elegant bulbs of the brightest yellow.

Transforming into fruitful seeds that blow in the wind,

Carried in the breeze too plant themselves elsewhere,

Children laughing while plucking them to give as gifts,

Lips puckered up with our breath to the seedlings too scatter and float in the air.

Dandelions are one of Gods’ most fertile flowers. Society deems them as a nuisance or a weed. Why not view them from the eyes of children or God?

*please note to gardeners that pesticides cause brain cancer, and if you can not view them as flowers as God has made then to pull them out or use natural. You can compost them, use them in crafts, and you can use them to cook with.

The Poetical Geisha

Come hither into this poetry house for you are invited,
She will pour you a cup of organic jasmine tea,
Or perhaps you would prefer organic fair trade coffee?
Adorned with artistic poetry props,
To entice the mind with words of pleasure,
Perhaps thought provoking or informative to your mind,
Glittering with alluring jewels of entertainment sensations,
The aroma she permeats is refreshing lemon balm,
Arousing minds to desire her writing company,
Creativity and her feathered quill dipped in ink,
Papyrus smeared with Gods’ nature, imagination or information,
Serving her reading guests and clients while filling their poetic appetites.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

not done hang on..i am combining my new poem with old geisha one..keep in mind lemon awakens you..that is a herbal remedy when one is tired or needs to feel alert..

The Flower Moon of May

Flower Moon sits in the darkened sky,

An orb of guidance for our seedlings too grow,

A divine sign from God to begin our gardens,

The moon casts its’ beams into our planter’s hands.

The flower moon emits light of Divine instruction of sowing food or flowers from God.

On our knee’s in front of our beds of earth,

Vegetables to harvest in future months for food,

Nourishment for our flesh embedded in the soil,

Exquisite and intoxicating perfumes within the buds and blossoms,

Visual delights in exotic shapes and colors.

Lands begin bursting in hues of bold colors and aroma’s led by Gods’ moon lit glow. 

On May 17th the flower moon will glow. They claim it is a sign of when to begin your gardening. In scripture God led certain festivals with the moon. On the 18th, we are going to try to plant a few things in pots in celebration of him igniting the sky to let us know.

aternity fragrances of calm lavender or lemon to refresh you.

rbiting sweetly and solely around our personal planet in our worlds.

hundering in her loud voice of protectiveness and security prowess.

ymns are sung in musical notes of cheer too stimulate and ignite hopes and dreams.

   xquisite in her guidance through the journey of our own self exploration.

efining her offspring into cultured and genuine individuals.

The Unintentional Geisha

Trained as a great artisan of entertainment,
Delighting minds and spirits over tea while serving them hand and foot,
Dancing in exotic gowns of silk that are embroidered,

Her company is sought out and desired,
Enticing and enriching the senses of our souls.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

The highest paid Geisha’s in Japan are not prostitutes. They are hired to  entertain and are trained right up until they are in their 70’s. They are a great hostess for they serve their guests hand and food.  They are moving artisans and hired for their services. Much like poets, writers or even singers are. They do remain single. A true Geisha does not allow further contact other than an illusion to men who visit her.

This of course being said not all men enjoy the artist type of women of song and dance and I am unsure of other forms of artistry these women train in. Poetry can be read aloud, and one can paint their portrait if they are trained in that particular art.
