My Biography is Coming Soon...

My biography will be very limited for now.   Here , I can express myself in poetic form but in real life I much rather prefer to be far less forward  I am a 60 year old American citizen , born and raised in the glorious South! A heritage that I am very proud of and thank God for as it is a blessing indeed ~

Currently married to my beautiful young wife(Riza) a lovely filipina  lady and we have a fantastic 7 year old son, Justin ~

I have truly lived a very wild life as a younger man but now find myself finally very happily settled down for the duration of my life~

In The Soup, Stirring Poetry With Glee

 

I that humbly bow at their feet

unworthy, reaching for the sky

oft dreaming to such rhythmic beats

and then wake to yet again try.

 

To turn ink into golden verse.

In doing needing hearts so nurse.

 

To let pen and paper thus meet

to cast verses from an eager heart

pray such poets may one day greet

to their sweeter verses impart.

 

To turn ink into golden verse.

In doing needing hearts so nurse.

 

As world now gives not credit due

Those golden poets rest in sleep

For time has gifted poets new

From such harvests great beauty reap .

 

To turn ink into golden verse.

In doing needing hearts so nurse.

 

I that humbly bow at their feet

unworthy, reaching for the sky

oft dreaming to such rhythmic beats

and then wake to yet again try.

 

To turn ink into golden verse.

In doing needing hearts so nurse.

(2.)

If A Rainbow One So Eagerly Seeks

 

If a rainbow one so eagerly seeks

By splashing ink, and magnificent verse

bravely allowing true heart to thus speak

even if, poetry may seem a dire curse.

 

Those of such talent daring to so give.

Blessings of words and composing to live.

 

If in those offerings healings are found

and true joyous moments rendered unto

are not poets therein so honor bound

to sail their ships gifting treasures anew.

 

Those of such talent daring to so give.

Blessings of words and composing to live.

 

If this world opposes with savage hand

the beauty and gleaming gems their way sent

all the more poets must take a strong stand

to give of self and know time is well spent.

 

Those of such talent daring to so give.

Blessings of words and composing to live.

(3.)

Then He Came Forth, A Dream Poet She Found

 

She woke from a night of terror and fears

her life had become sorrows and sad tears

yet dawn's gleaming sometimes gave a brief pause

as if it was somehow a lifesaving clause

yet the new day was destined to die

into darkness -into night she must fly.

 

Then he came forth, a dream poet she found

sending verses that vanquished her woes

she thought, now he shall always come around

to bring happiness that defeats life's blows

in newfound joy she set her ship aright

freed from the ghastly torturous nights.

 

A book, a gift from a very dear friend

in its pages poems that entered her heart

now love she no longer had to pretend

beautiful verses gave her a new start.

Importance of Poetry, Rhyming, and Music

April 14, 2020

#FEATURED#LEARNING DIFFERENCES

April is National Poetry Month!

 

Poetry, rhyming, and music are excellent ways to develop children’s literacy skills, particularly in the area of phonological awareness. “Phonological awareness is the ability to attend to and manipulate units of sound in speech (syllables, onsets and rimes, and phonemes) independent of meaning” (H. Yopp & R. Yopp, 2009, p. 13).

Why is phonological awareness important? A preponderance of research supports the finding that phonological awareness is critical for developing word recognition skills. It is foundational for both reading and spelling success. “Noticing and being able to manipulate the sounds of spoken language—phonological awareness—is highly related to later success in reading and spelling” (H. Yopp & R. Yopp, 2009, p. 15). According to Kilpatrick (2016), “Poor phonological awareness is the most common cause of poor reading” (p. 13).

 

Using Poetry and Songs with Young Children or Emergent Readers

Children who have not yet developed independent reading skills can listen and participate in the recitation of poems and the singing of songs. Oral language is the foundation for literacy. Literacy begins with listening and speaking, and “oral language development facilitates print literacy” (Fisher & Frey, 2014, para. 1). According to Elster (2010), “Poetry contains highly patterned, predictable language that has the unique potential to promote memorable and pleasurable experiences in preschool, kindergarten, and primary classrooms” (p. 48).

 

Teachers can intentionally select poems and songs to focus on a particular phonological awareness skill. For example, a poem with alliteration can be utilized to provide practice hearing and identifying an initial sound repeated across multiple words. This is the phonemic awareness skill of identifying the initial phoneme (i.e., sound) in a word. A poem or song that incorporates rhyming words allows children to focus on a particular string of sounds and identify rhyming patterns.

 

These types of phonological awareness activities that draw students’ attention to sounds in words help build foundational understandings necessary for later mapping letters to sounds for reading and spelling.

 

Other literacy skills can be incorporated with poems and songs as well. As children are beginning to interact with print, teachers can utilize a large copy of a printed poem for demonstrating tracking and one-to-one correspondence while reading. Students’ understanding of the phonological awareness skill of concept of word helps facilitate this relationship of the spoken word to the printed word—another example of how phonological awareness is foundational to reading.

 

As letters are being learned, teachers or students can highlight letters or words in the poem (e.g., highlight ‘b’ words when working on the letter ‘b’). Echo reading, choral reading, and repeated reading can be used as the teacher and students “read” the poem together. Some poems also serve as appropriate texts for vocabulary and comprehension instruction.

The Importance Of Poetry In Today’s Society

May 19, 2020 Kaushal Piruka

Our society in today’s modern world has become more complicated than we can bear. Everything has become about money, luxury, fame, and power. People are running after materialism like mad men. It is almost like people have forgotten the voice of poetry. And that’s exactly why poetry is so important in our society today. This world is built of emotions and stories but the new age of technology seems to have taken away that definition from us. Because, technology has made everything virtual, leaving no to very less room for real stories and emotions.

 

 

Poetry can help you irrespective of which side of the stage are you on! If you are a poet, you get an opportunity to pour your heart out and relieve yourself of undue stress and pressure. As a consumer of that poetry, you can relate to the poet’s words, emotions, moods, and the feelings. This will help you feel less alone in this world full of people in distress. The current generation is prone to depression and loneliness like never before. What if the distance of this generation from art is one of the reasons? What if we can solve this epidemic by letting people invest time in art, and especially in poetry?

 

Poetry Makes You A Better Person

When you truly understand yourself and the society, you also know what you can do to improve yourself and the society.

Poetry helps you understand and see the world with a new set of eyes. You begin to question a lot of things you have learned so far and the process of learning and unlearning and learning takes place. Both, the creator and the consumer of poetry get an opportunity to appreciate this world and this life like never before. Poetry brings you closer to the deepest of your emotions like love, kindness, empathy, anger, drama, fear, and so on. In order to be human, it is crucial to always be in touch with your emotions. Poetry also promotes honesty in the hearts of the people it touches.

 

The best aspect of poetry is that not only it helps you grow but when it comes to it, poetry itself grows with you. Yes! Poems can be like your friends. With the passage of time and after experiencing various interpretations, poems also tend to grow into a newer and better version of itself. That’s the beauty of poetry. It never ceased to surprise us!

 

Poetry helps you to amplify your sense of understanding of the world and of yourself. You become more and more aware of yourself, your emotions, your feelings and your wants. When you truly know yourself, you also know what you can do to improve yourself. That’s exactly why poetry is often regarded as the best therapy. While it is not a substitute or an alternative of professional therapy but the experience of poetry itself is therapeutic.

The Gift, The Truth, Hope And Its Sweet Promise

 

Your hope- you have gifted unto me

unto me, a vagabond shifting sand

a flightless bird lost in its plumage

under a great and mighty oak tree

above the sun beams

its illumination forbidding night

vanquishing darkness,  its blacken strokes

In your hope rests a truth

that this vessel surrounding my soul

is but a temporary hindrance

a shell, a decaying fortress

bearing the hits from cannon shots

empty now- awaiting reinforcement

from a cavalry that vanished long ago

Youth-

alas! was it ever real

a maddening rush into the waiting trap

I remember-those sweet summer days

barefoot, soft grass between my toes

Youth-

a man-less ship

sailing upon uncharted seas

decorating blue skies and watery echoes

I now stand-aged, looking back

amazed at the speed of flight

how life gave no care of time

no respect of defiant reality

Your hope- you have gifted unto me

knowledge, inspiration- a new goal

to die without dire regrets

to depart a man

accepting truth, light, love

and the immense vanity born into mortal flesh.

 

Robert J. Lindley, 3-06-2021

free verse, (  Eternity, Seen Beyond The Purple Veil )

********************************************

In Garden Of Dreams, As Dawn Awakens

 

Dare I live with love and thus take Heavenly flight

To sup away nectar of a cool summer night

All is not so, not as it so appears

Dare I dream it so through my falling tears?

 

Alas! She that feasted here has now fled

Leaving behind a heart so deeply bled

A love refusing to curse her and quit

I drink that sweet nectar cup- all of it.

 

In garden of dreams as dawn awakens

Dwells she that was so far away taken

Dare I, to her soft calls in haste thus go

Into paradise where her love winds blow?

 

Dare I live with love and thus take Heavenly flight

To sup away nectar of a cool summer night?

Wow, such appreciation for those on the site. You are so right about, "phonological awareness"; people don't even seem to annunciate well anymore. Poetry is all you say and even more. Well penned blog with a great appreciation for poetry and those who craft it. Enjoyed this blog, Robert.

Oh, of all the marvelously wondrous poems and treatises you have brought to this blog over the four years I've been here, this is my favorite ... and since I have used up most of my shining adjectives and golden phrases to express my feelings for the others, I will simply say that this is, for me, the icing on the cake! And as I am near hanging up my PS jacket on that rusty old discouragement hook, it was also perfectly timed. Thank you for enriching my spirit, my friend, and with a couple of others here, ALWAYS being a supporter and encourager, undaunted. Take care always, and never stop writing, Sir Roberto! - The Bastard Bard

Thank you my friend. One must listen intently to the heart's inspirational murmurings and then compose with the poetic appreciation, thanks and depths they are so bountifully blessed with. Offer that new creation to others with the hope it may help in some way. God bless. The act of giving is its own reward.

I see below that you are of the opinion that poetry is the greatest of the arts, I would rank it second only to music or maybe a tie for first. I am glad you included quotes, two of my favorites; "Publishing a volume of verse is like dropping a rose-petal down the Grand Canyon and waiting for the echo" & "Poetry is a deal of joy and pain and wonder, with a dash of the dictionary".

Sadly I have zero talent in music, playing any musical instruments or in singing. I do know how to grab paper and pen and sling words. Doing so with the hope, the thought that just maybe those words will help somebody in some way. My core conviction on poetry is that it is a gift given unto all of mankind. And a gift coming from the poet's true heart and soul. That to me is --true poetry. That is its golden foundation- its beauty and its power to bring joy, pleasure, love, hope, knowledge, life insights, wonderment, etc, etc..

Thank you my friend. Yes it is a rather sticky decision which of the two to place over the other. I weighed that long ago and decided that poetry -to me- weighed ever so slightly better. Of course with my being in no way musically talented myself- I weighed the subject with a standing bias. I think it is just a matter of personal preference between to the Two. The difference in placing being ever so slight. Both certainly take the top two spots! Your two favorites are indeed true and golden in depths, insight and reality. God bless..

Poetry does not belong to those who write it, but to those who need it. ~Publo Neruda. Just an aside, Robert: The length of the blogs might also have an influence whether it is read. Much like the OP-EDs on social media platforms. A too lengthy piece might be browsed and scimmed over. It is difficult to read a lengthy piece on one's phone, for example. Similarly, a verbose poem with aurete phrases might be ignored for the same reason.

Thank you my friend. Your comment and advice is well considered by myself and taken as apparently intended. I was educated in the 60's-- before our education system went into the decayed state it is in today. My poetry represents my thoughts and if they or my blogs are too long, or too difficult for others, then such is not my problem- but rather is theirs... God bless..

Thank you my dear friend. Life is too short for one to live with so many negative thoughts/actions. As true poets we are to attempt to give--- not take. Sad that in this modern world-- taking-- is more the norm. True poetic fellowship fell by the wayside and poetry is far the worse for it, imho. God bless.

Poetry is the greatest of the Arts, imho. It covers the entire spectrum of human existence, communication, revelation and beauty. Positive reinforcement among poets is key.

ERICA JONG “What makes you a poet is a gift for language, an ability to see into the heart of things, and an ability to deal with important unconscious material. When all these things come together, you’re a poet. But there isn’t one little gimmick that makes you a poet. There isn’t any formula for it.”

I believe that every English poet should read the English classics, master the rules of grammar before he attempts to bend or break them, travel abroad, experience the horrors of sordid passion, and – if he is lucky enough – know the love of an honest woman. ~Robert Graves What makes you a poet is a gift for language, an ability to see into the heart of things, and an ability to deal with important unconscious material.

Poetry is what in a poem makes you laugh, cry, prickle, be silent, makes your toe nails twinkle, makes you want to do this or that or nothing, makes you know that you are alone in the unknown world, that your bliss and suffering is forever shared and forever all your own. ~Dylan Thomas The poet is the priest of the invisible. ~Wallace Stevens Poetry might be defined as the clear expression of mixed feelings. ~W.H. Auden If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry. –Emily Dickinson

Use no superfluous word, no adjective, which does not reveal something. Don’t use such an expression as ‘dim land of peace’. It dulls the image. It mixes an abstraction with the concrete. It comes from the writer’s not realising that the natural object is always the adequate symbol. Go in fear of abstractions. ~Ezra Pound I consider myself a poet first and a musician second. I live like a poet and I’ll die like a poet. ~Bob Dylan

https://www.writerswrite.co.za/33-quotes-by-poets-on-poetry/.... What the world wants, what the world is waiting for, is not Modern Poetry or Classical Poetry or Neo-Classical Poetry — but Good Poetry. And the dreadful disreputable doubt, which stirs in my own sceptical mind, is doubt about whether it would really matter much what style a poet chose to write in, in any period, as long as he wrote Good poetry. ~G. K Chesterton Always be a poet, even in prose. ~Charles Baudelaire Poets are shameless with their experiences: they exploit them. ~Friedrich Nietzsche A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. ~Robert Frost You must have a certain amount of maturity to be a poet. Seldom do sixteen-year-olds know themselves well enough. ~Erica Jong Poetry is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings: it takes its origin from emotion recollected in tranquillity. ~William Wordsworth

Thank you my friend. I started this blog over two months ago, but several things prevented me from finishing it. Life seems to have a way of getting in the way of my writings. Of course the concept idea was about being positive about writing, about poetry and how to relate to others involved in that journey- in that discovery, in that passion! To me every poet is a true artist- yet also given to their own concept of what poetry is-or what it should be. That individuality is a core strength of poetry as seen in its rich history , and its foundation. Poetry's diversity is its strength and its ability to move ever forward. Positive poetic fellowship serves to reinforce the majestic Art. God bless..

Thank you my friend. This dedication blog was presented to remind we poets that this world truly and desperately needs us... That each poet gives so much of heart and soul without being compelled by force but rather by being compelled by that inner drive, that invisible hand driving hearts and minds to give unto others, to hope such gives aid, comfort , cheer and more. While asking readers to consider the words inked, the soul that gave and the message therein. All poets are blessed with that drive, that beauty, that heart, that depths of soul. I salute all poets for their time. labor and love given unto others. God bless..

Thank you my friend. Poetry stirs the soul, soothes the heart and enables many to unload their thoughts while communicating with the entire world. Gifting not only love, truth, beauty, dreams, hope and more -but a sense of positivity and accomplishment too. I have said it for decades- " Poets are the soul of this world"!! Oft building a refuge in which others may seek, love, solace, hope, peace, joy, so much more. Dare we continue? Yes, we must! God bless...

I personally write poetry to expell demons of unwelcome thoughts. Sometimes, as you say, the compultion to compose a poem sears into my dreams and it might feel at times to be a curse.

A lovely blog and your poetry is exquisitely penned Robert, There is a huge difference with this blog your blogs are educational and are not posted just to publicise one poem which is what is causing issues on soup. At the end of the day we all have a poetry page to post our poems so there is no need for any poet to use blogs to promote a single poem. If we all post our poems in blogs then it makes a mockery of having a poetry page.

Jan my friend, thank you for your very kind comment on this blog. This is a dedication blog- one that I started long ago and finally was able to finish to post today. Each of these poems was inspired by a very fine poet here. By that poet's poem I read. I lost my note as to which poet inspired each poem. Thus I could not rely on my failing memory to give those names. And I dared not insultingly present it in error.. The Soup truly does have so very many -top poets-- that inspire others, imho. God bless...
