Poetry Polaris -

I was a child of words,
they explained my laughter, sheltered my dreams,
gave soul and sunshine a synergy,
emotions could escape jovially, mischeviously, miraculously,
art from a wind pipe, architecture of innocence played on papyrus,
I discovered that I could lye with them to achieve absolvement,
I may lie with them to remember light in long trails of history,
poetry became my throne, my home, how my heart shown
somethng precious I could own,
from them I learned diversity of dangerous dialectics,
from them I may teach about candor and courage, 
about forgiveness flown wide,
a license from Divinity, a desire from death diging in doubts,
wise warriors may make the word sword from words,
defending their lifetimes with those weapons of intellectual warfare,
I chose Poetry because She rescued me from the philistines,
where I needed meaning She gave me begining
with an oath for us both,
going forth like students entering a cathedral worthy of new psalms
She was the water I touched my forehead with
I was Her reason for season, 
a whirlwind She could bless with a scream,
a man with poetics in my purpose and melody in mind,
She would shatter stars for my delight
and I will break my body for Her foresight,
for She is forthright,
and I am Her knight -

    we have many crossroads along our growing paths. I see this from your piece here! I am not in the business of peddling poetry, see, here's the thing, ummm...Speaking of ODE's. I have sketched a little sum sumthin as an ODE to you and your spectacular writings, comments too. It is titled: "Roast of Justin Bordner"---so, read it and love it or Die MotherTrucker!

    You and I use Poetry to express astonishing awareness JSL, cognizance of the ugly and lovely, the blessings and sufferings. Well, since I will not die, I'll just have to love your Tribute. Thank you! J.A.B.

    I got a new tattoo today Eilenn, its so beautiful and masculine. This poem is a celebration of my heart and soul's resurrection through Poetry's blessings. Poetry gave my pain, joy, wisdom and love an instrument to build beauty with. You and I were born to be Poets, born to be powerful. I have a new wtite on the way soon. J.A.B.

    Hello Justin, stopping by this poem again, I stopped by the other day, but I found myself speechless towards the energy I picked up from all your comments. I'm glad to have found this part of what makes you YOU. I'm happy to know the reason why poetry has found reason in you. My poetry story goes way back to when I was 12, a young girl in my own world. he he, I can't believe I been expressing myself deeply ever since.. time stood still the first time i feel in love. Now, look at me many moons later, I can inherit or brake any dream my pen and thoughts reach. ha, sorry to babble! Have yourself a nice one :-) always & forever* Linda

    I like your babble Linda, it is bewitching :J - Glad you gave me some of your precious history - I wonder how you feel about your earliest writes - you have been Divinely inspired for a long time now, I can only imagine what the cost, or sacrafice must have been for you to be favored so well by the Great Muse of Poetry - J.A.B. %

    You wrap yourself in the words that give new meaning to the world! Through these thoughts we see who you are, enigmatic, an individual that can't be replicated and somewhat of a dreamer who gives life substance. Always a treat to read your gems Justin! Love, Lizzie

    To personalize tradition, place a signature of unique spirit on the classic confrontations & comforts of art/life is a noble accomplishment Lizzie -I thank you deeply for believing that I have achieved such an amazing relationship with the Cosmos - J.A.B. %

    Many years ago it was said: - "Boys should not cry" - "Girls crying" - Writing poems describes a lot of emotions - both boys and girls have feelings!!! - Good support from the adults, the child can become confident in themselves and their abilities - Develop pleasure in what they are good at ...... and you are one of those Justin - Luck in contest! - oxox / / Anne-Lise :)

    I received no meaningful education from the State, and my parents never encouraged my intellect Anne - my artistic abilities are the product of Providence and my Will, along with being aware of the grace of Life's lessons - I agree with you Anne regarding the value of adults mentoring the young - I thank you for your warm encouragement my friend - I am a voice from Nature and for Nature, nothing more, nothing less -
