A Sactuary - Safe and Strong - Poetry Soup Palace


Blog Posted:10/2/2013 8:55:00 PM
 
Sometimes in May, 2011 the poetess Linda Marie sponsored a contest "Poetry Palace.

What I had said on those days : I have to say this these days:

A Sanctuary – Safe and Strong

People don’t have to migrate to be citizens to this palace,
Over here life burning well creativity is the ash
Even the poorest gets the best sanctuary
The status not inevitable here in this heaven
Rare infusion of mind and heart, not an illusion
Yearning to write and to be read with pleasure

Poets, writers, commoners, dreamers old and young
An African-Asian-European-Australian-American all
Lands are free, homes are beaming with activities
A problem of racism unknown, prejudice, malice dead
Come all sane, insane, to record the best or the worst
Eventually let the Goddess of poetry soothe our hearts.
==============================================

I was inspired to present this blog on reading the blog of the poet Craig Cornish.

    I admire the thrust of this blog Dear Doctor; I sometimes consider the idea/ideals of peoples sense of 'perfection' I know life circumstances often push us to one side or the other.. 'however' it is very good to have some refrence point to refer to even when we are so belegured..'
