For POETS UNITED ~ Midweek Motif: The Joy of Poetry ~ Ah Poetry' Pleasure and Peace

when emotions awake
ideas arise, exciting the
mind stirring the soul

when beauty manifests
sinking into the spirit
casting palls or filling joy

then the desire for
words begins the search
a phrase a form perched

on an empty page and
we say it is a poem
here we have poetry

sometimes spontaneous
sometimes dragging
yet it comes letter

by letter word by word
penned silently
loudly heard....

Ah this is poetry......
pleasure and peace

Poets United Midweek Motif ~ Beauty ~ In Distortion

what is beauty? truth colors boundless?
or what ever does the eye meet that reflects
peace harmony satisfaction happiness?

what is beauty? order in chaos?
gain more after loss or victory over
someone gross. ugly seeming moss?

what is beauty? peace after war?
or hidden hatred in a smile
suppressed for a while?

what is beauty? forgiveness and yet'
thoughts hovering far behind
killing good all the time'
