Art And Poetry (2 Poems)

Poetry Forecast —

Some people walk in the rain, others just get wet.”

Words fall from the sky
into my just awake mind,
onto the consciousness
of my new day’s dawn.

I lean back my head and
and drink that rain
like magical champagne.

Some days they sprinkle.
Some days they pour.
Some days storms rage
and tear like hurricanes
across my blank page.

It is not something
I can command or control.

It is how poems begin.

It is imagination’s source,
the climate of creativity,
the sense in the nonsense,
possibility in impossibility.

It slakes my thirst
for more than mundane,
makes life matter
beyond money and pain.

My task: turn what falls
from words into patterns,
write the drops down,
try to make them mean,

and then

wake up every day
and do it all again,
wait for that weather,
pray for that rain.



Art as a way of survival —

Every day we
struggle and compete,
experience loss,
live with dissatisfaction.

Strife dominates life.

A little ease, please.

Music, painting, poetry
may break the mundane,
provide a moment’s respite,
shake up the brain,
make us new again,
able to see another road,
experience a vision,
empathize with the Other,
find a possible path
through the politics
of our daily pain.

Art is one way
to persist and resist.

It needs no other
reason to be.

  1. Words fall like rain
    Some days soft as snowflakes
    Other days like raucous thunder
    But never without wonder. Yours are wonder-filled, indeed!
