{from such is poetry}

~ TO TASTE OF LIFE COMPLETELY ~

How delicious it would be
To taste of life, completely
To sweep into a patch of grass
Moves me warm, and ever lasts...

Comes a time, when souls swim green
Takes of time, its soft and sultry
As cotton wind on feathered feelings
Soaking up buttercups, and just thinking...

An inkling of what may brightly bloom
Ginger berries, manifesting mushrooms
Frolicking fairies glow golden wings
The softness so subtle, through quiet sings...

Comes a time, when the world so still
Echoes nothing, but dreams fulfilled
Become a garden of dancing lights
Birthing beauty and creative heights...

From such are poetry and artistry born
And all the world, with color adorned
Oh how delicious, it would be
To taste of life, completely...

This...is what I mean about you being up there with the greatest on here. I was very physically lying in a field of wild flowers totally at peace with the world and myself. You probably intended a much deeper meaning which others will pick up on but me?...I'm lying in the wildflowers, in the sun, in peace...and I thankyou for that. Pinned because it's beautiful 💖

Being Me

Oh wouldn't it be so good if our lives planned out the way we dreamed they would. No dramas or hiccups or accidents or illness. Happiness is such a simple thing yet so difficult to obtain in totality. Yet trauma and heartache (in all its guises) are the very things from which a poet is born. And it is only really the poets and writers and artists that see the magic in the everyday.  A fabulous and extremely well written poem x

Being Me

No, my name was not Being Me before. It wouldn't let me use my old Cosmo name...my real name. And yes you got the gender right 😉 x

Hello T, I wish life could be this soft and calming...with the senses in full height to take in all the beauty of nature and be swept away into that blissful moment.  Through poetry, we bring just a little bit of that bliss into fruition in words that save a moment in time forever....just as you have with such a relaxing beautiful scene.  I am sure the fairies would thank you...lol ...I always love your nature writes....Awesome imagery, as usual.  xo Love n Hugs, ;)

laying here in the wheat  field listening 
to your poem and trying to keep the meaning
of it and trying to feel it in my body and mind
I will find it and know it and dear poet don't 
wonder off to far in life you may get lost in
time

My Dear Tony,

"From such are poetry and artistry born
And all the world, with color adorned"

These two lines are poetic artistry personified.  As usual, you have knocked the ball out of the park.

I savor "To Taste Of Life Completely"
To be successful in my quest
I ingest the essence of Mother Nature
And my peace does she behest

All my love,
Larry xx

" NOTED, IN DISPATCHES. " LIFE.
What, it gives. What, it takes.
Fact, over fiction, leaving you the " interest " of sumptuous gains, from effort so satisfying it makes you hanker for MORE. You, walk through the valley of green and " Buttercup " yellow...to the shadows. Starkly, fulfilling a craving to experience. To, sense. To, learn. Even, appreciating losses.
" THE HEART OF THE MATTER, IS WHAT MATTERS TO THE HEART ! "
Live, in the moment. Where you are. Knowing, what you are....and, represent.
Feel, the wind. And, " tides " turning. To give passage, of time, meaning.
Along with " Promised Land " !
:)
