POETRY’S PLACE

The place of poetry in society is to speak, to speak in a way that encourages awakening and proclaims your heart.  The place of poetry in society is to encourage others to speak, in the music of words, painting, music. . .

 

She is

a rose

for the bees

the midnight ocean’s

moon

music

that makes you feel

your heart

beating

ABSOLUT-ING

I was singing a song I learned at school that day, the policeman is your friend.  I was 8.  My Dad stopped me.  He said, No.  That’s a job, not character definition.   Because a person wears a particular uniform, does a particular job, that doesn’t tell you about the person.  You have to listen and pay attention to what they do to know a person.  Occupations do not define a person, nor do they tell you anything about them.  There are no absolutes.

I wish we would learn this and stop the absolut-ing.  It’s not truthful, but is divisive.

Look around today, see when you absolute and try a different thought.  Have an open, honest day.  Lilie
