d’Verse Poetics – It’s Quotable

 

There are only two ways to live your life: one is as though nothing is a miracle, and the other is as though everything is a miracle.”   – Einstein

 

Cultivating your thoughts

 

every morning

faced with a blank slate;

memories indelibly erased

scars scabbed and fallen

leaving barely a trace

as if winter were permanent

and days having lost elasticity

accept the beauty

of just being whatever is

 

growing inside of me

the thoughts

I have to attend to,

waiting in an untilled garden

to be cultivated,

churned inward

nurtured and watered

with appreciation

for the miracle

of everything I perceive

around me

  1. Ah, I like the idea that the thoughts inside of us are an untilled garden. It is a big responsibility, I think, to find the right way to cultivate that garden to make of it the best possible crop. Your words always cause me to look at things in a new way.

    • where the inspiration comes from – a smile, a drop of rain, hearing someone’s name, a word that enters and reaches deep into the heart and soul, a poem is born within the womb of imagination and truth, and seeks but a simple scribbling on a napkin or a glint in a lover’s eye to materialize.
