We all have this, an inner peacock, waiting to be released. Your colors, your voice, your creativity. I think poetry read out loud into wind and to others helps this process. Being on this island, even the trees are talking to one another. Each leaf has a different sound in the wind and is accompanied by the surf. One can’t help but start to notice nature’s rhythm’s more, the color of the sky, the movement of the clouds, the shadows on the mountains, the placement of the moon. I take the time to match my breath with the tide of my surroundings. It brings a deep sense of belonging.

quiet waters
time stands still in the sun
fish slip through the clouds

red sun early rise
the fisherman throw their nets
roosters are crowing

wind in the tree tops
be the living breathing earth
dancing through your day

Swirling waters crashing
Sea sounds running through my thoughts
Tangled in the white surf

    Comments on Poetry

    I would like to share some experiences around poetry that I have had. I attended the Gerald B Dodge Poetry Festival some 10 plus years ago for the first time and I was completely overcome with the sounds of poetry, the voice of the poets, the impact of poems on emotions and thoughts and the interaction of the poet with the audience.

    I brought home lots of books of poetry and read them often. But, some thing was missing. I have narrowed it down to three things, which are: 1) hearing the words out loud, hearing the human voice as part of the process of experiencing a poem. 2) finding poems that spoke to me, that they were in a language that I could relate to and 3) sharing the experience of poetry with others.

    When I started writing my own poetry and sharing it with others I was able to give voice to my words and set them free. My poems often satisfy a need for simplicity that I often have and I understand that my poems might not speak to anyone else but what I do hope to do is inspire you to find poetry that does speak to you, whether from others or from inside your own heart and soul.

    The white bird has flown
    My heart still feels a presence
    Watching the branch sway

    Darkness absorbs us
    Even silence has a sound
    Everyone has heard

    Cold mixed with light
    Across the blue and shadowed snow
    My thoughts linger there
