Passionate Poetry for Touching Weary Hearts

Seafarer Mama/Karen is a poet, and reads her poetry to small groups of friends, and to larger groups at open mics.

Flowers are Poetry Incarnate

This rose blossomed from a bush gifted to me from my mother.  Flowers lift my heart and often inspire romantic thoughts that turn into poetry from my pen.

Music Flows Through Me

Music, like water,

Flows through me,

Washing away my worries, doubts and fears,

Drawing from the faith within,

To set my soul to dancing

Like diamonds on sun-splashed water droplets.

*****************************************************

Ripples of music

Gladden my heart,

Soothe my soul.

My ears feast on

The cornupoia

Of playful notes.

*****************************************************

The world's magic

Enlivens my senses most vividly

When I'm listening to music.

Water Droplets Sparkling in the Sunshine

Watching water droplets sparkle in the sunshine while I water our gardens is as enchanting as it is refreshing.

The Gift of Now

Take solace in the moments

When you draw in love,

Then create peace

Through the work of your hands,

The sparkle in your eyes,

The soft words that offer respite

To other anxious souls.

Now is the only time we can count on;

Let's make our now transform the world!

To truly see another is to honor their light,

Their eternal flame.

The gift to us in times of uncertainty

Is time itself.

Our "thank you" is in how well our now

Ripples love into the world.

The Poetry of Laughing With Friends

Laughter among friends is most endearing because it carries ripples of a heartfelt love unlike any other.

My daughter's voice is the most enchanting sound I know, especially when she's laughing.

Laughter

Face brightens;

Spirit lightens;

Eyes twinkle;

Skin Crinkles;

Mouth turns up,

Planting roses in our cheeks.

*******************************

Breath ripples;

Belly Shakes;

Best Medicine

Merriment makes;

Laughter shared far and wide,

The world blossoms,

With Kindness.

Poetry of the Senses: Late Afternoon Sunshine on the Labyirnth Path

Sitting on the bench at the center of the labyrinth path among the trees is pure poetic enchantment, which I am blessed to witness every day.
