Original Poem – The Little Stargazer

My grandmother was a poet. Back in my teens and twenties I wrote poetry too. I penned (literally) this poem back in 1991. It recalled a time when I was eight years old looking at the night sky through my grandmother’s binoculars. Enjoy!

“THE LITTLE STARGAZER”

Little boy eight years old
dreaming of adventures bold.
peering up into the sky
at points of shining light.

Busy counting all the stars
through grandma’s old binoculars.
Wondering who might live out there
Perhaps a race advanced and fair.

Making plans one day to go
Out beyond our tiny globe.
Journey to the star fields bright
Out amid the scattered light.

Twenty years since that summer night
Spent scanning distant stellar light.
Still search that dazzling canopy
For someone staring back at me.

7 Motivational Haiku Poems

Haiku, according to poetry.org, as follows.

A traditional Japanese haiku is a three-line poem with seventeen syllables, written in a 5/7/5 syllable count. Often focusing on images from nature, haiku emphasizes simplicity, intensity, and directness of expression.

Over the past few years, I’ve written some motivational haiku. Here are some of my best along with beautiful imagery from Pixabay.com.

Express dreams hidden

A fully manifest WE

human slumber ends

Here now there, life is

Expanding, enriching, one

Beauty every way

Challenging questions

Answers unexpected choice

New horizons born

New garden planted

Past failures long forgotten

Bounty on the way

Greatness among us

Opportunity presents

Offer all you are

Waking early bliss

Feet touching welcoming floor

Twenty-four new hours

Gentle winds caress

Breathing life, hope into me

All’s now possible

Midday Motivation – The Road Not Taken

Some have called Robert Frost America’s poet. Clearly, his 1915 Poem, The Road Not Taken, is among the top poems in American history. One hundred years later, it’s still used as a metaphor in ads and stirs the hearts of adventurers and dreamers.

It gained some notoriety in the past couple of years ago when poetry critic, David Orr, claimed we have all misinterpreted the poem. Whether you buy the classic reading or this noveau twist, it never fails to inspire.

Here’s the poem read by the poet.

Poem: Where Sorrow Ends

buddha_chakrasI don’t write much poetry any more, but I used to be an avid writer of poetry and verse. My topics mostly ranged from philosophical to spiritual to nature. Here’s one example an attempt to get beyond our temporal conceptions and grasp the void beyond.

“WHERE SORROW ENDS”

Beauty beheld in fragrant states;
surfing across sweeping thought waves.
Tragedy and ecstasy, here are unified,
out beyond the gravity of space and time.

Concept finds no grounding there.
Brilliant men have failed to dare
go where the world is not born;
and so they are by cravings torn.

To be a warrior and a sage
without the fear that grips our age.
To travel where the sages roam,
finding, at last, the peace of home.
