Poetic Notions

Grounded by the gravity of our earth 
      Our body and spirit are often pulled 
In opposite opposing directions in
      Contention between visceral emotions
And logical, intellectual, left brain thought.
      Too much of one may eviscerate the other.
A combination of both are needed to retain
      Balance and a sense of inner sanctuary.
Poetry has the sensibilities to stir our 
      Emotions, to speak to body and spirit,
Melding our terrestrial selves with the divine.

    Beautifully said, Connie; our true selves are perfect, for our essence is that of the Divine. One need only let go of the lesser to be effortlessly filled to overflowing abundance.

    Poetry has the sensibilities to stir our Emotions, to speak to body and spirit, Melding our terrestrial selves with the divine, as your poetry does my friend. You are a great poet, Weldon...........A.M.

    Connie I couldn't agree with you more. I have just recently taken a leap of faith and decided to write poetry. Actually a couple of poems. I was afraid I wouldn't measure up to the poets here however, everyone has been so wonderful and supportive. Writing has been an emotional cleansing. Loved this piece :) A fav.

    Hi Connie. i am pretty lucky because I really have no desires these days [Maybe old age] so I jut follow my heart, so very rarely do the wrong thing these days. I love the way you wrote this poem ,my friend. It was a joy to read you....peter

    Very insightful write indeed, Connie! Enjoyed it as I do all of your poems. Many thx for the kind comments re the Opal write and birthday greetings The black opals are very rare and as you say, very pricey but you'll own one one day I know. Vera has about every gem known to man and got them when we were stationed in Japan when the yen was about 360 to a dollar. Best to you - Bob H

    Lovely, Connie, yes it can be a struggle, but we try. I sometimes succeed, too. Woo! Viv x

    so true, Connie, this is an intelligent piece. I tend to let my practical side overtake the other!!

    I would wager Most artists are of the visceral sort. Love the picture. Love, Dave

    Excellent. Very thoughtful write of spiritual peace. Enjoyed reading it. Thanks for sharing it.

    This poem is for the thinking and spiritually evolved person. It is too deep for a quick read and too wisdom laced for any dense spirit lacking truth. I enjoyed reading it many times for it has many gifts, Connie. I concur wholeheartedly with the content that I have never been able to pen as succinctly as you have. This is impressive ... CayCay
