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~

I decided to rest here and express myself with hopes that it may in some way help others, for I see here a very diverse  and fine gathering of poets, artists, and caring folks~

Quickly finding friends here that amaze me with such great talent~~

I invite any and all to comment on my writes and send me soup mail to discuss

whatever seems important to them ~

A balance as the in-between of light and dark

HARMONY ON EARTH Day and night are perfectly balanced on the first day of spring in snap of Earth’s terminator from space

The shot was taken from space on the spring equinox, which fell on March 20 this year

A STUNNING image shows the Earth in perfect balance between night and day on the first official day of spring.

 

The snap of the planet's terminator - the line separating night and day - was taken from space on the spring equinox, which fell on March 20 this year.

With half of the planet illuminated in light and the other steeped in darkness, the picture captures the Earth’s beautiful symmetry.

 

During the equinox, the amount of daylight and darkness is nearly equal at all latitudes.

 

It occurs twice a year, in March and in September and heralds the changing seasons.

 

Last week marked the official astronomical start of spring – which is also referred to as the vernal equinox.

 

 

"During two special times twice a year, the tilt is actually perpendicular to the sun, which means that Earth is equally illuminated in the Northern and Southern hemispheres," C. Alex Young, associate director for science in the Heliophysics Science Division at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, previously told Live Science.

 

This means, the sun is directly above the equator at noon during an equinox, which is latin for “equal night”.

 

“The 'nearly' equal hours of day and night is due to refraction of sunlight, or a bending of the light's rays that causes the sun to appear above the horizon when the actual position of the sun is below the horizon,” according to the US' National Weather Service.

 

In the Northern Hemisphere, the spring equinox also marks the beginning of autumn in the Southern Hemisphere.

 

The Northern Hemisphere's autumnal equinox — which will take place six months later — heralds the coming of spring south of the equator.

On Nights As Quiet As Silent Fern Grows

 

On nights as quiet as silent fern grows

Within solitude of a heart torn

A chill like a blanket of winter snow

Invades to destroy hopes of the forlorn.

 

Outside far beyond moon so softly weeps

Yet the heartbroken finds no release

Hours tick away that much needed sleep

Even most sincere prayers bring no peace.

 

Those sad nights bringing dark unholy hell

Life seeks to deny epic horrors sent

Yet sorrow's great powers are hard to quell

For heart and soul are both torn and spent.

 

On nights as quiet as silent fern grows

Within solitude of a heart torn

A chill like a blanket of winter snow

Invades to destroy hopes of the forlorn.

A Vision So Breathtaking To Behold

 

I remember that day as clear as glass

Glistening dew wet upon verdant grass

A true angel stood there smiling at me

I in my hammock under that old elm tree.

 

A vision so breathtaking to behold

Like fantastic romantic tale well told

Mind asking can this sweet treasure be real

Is this love at first sight that I now feel?

 

Taking a deep breath and another look

Deeper romantic thoughts began to cook

Tis heaven sent and so meant to be mine

I say I love you, I  want to be thine.

 

I remember that day as clear as glass

Glistening dew wet upon verdant grass

A true angel stood there smiling at me

I in my hammock under that old elm tree.

 

I remember that day as clear as glass

Glistening dew wet upon verdant grass

A true angel stood there smiling at me

I in my hammock under that old elm tree.

Romanticism,

There Within Twilight's Soft Whispering Breath

 

There within twilight's soft whispering breath

Resides divine words that can defeat death

Words of hope bathed in Beauty and Light

Treasures as can relieve saddest of plights.

 

Dare we mortals live our winter choices

Pleading for more with our desperate voices

Mind chanting our deepest of dark sorrows

Living each day, praying for tomorrows.

 

Our souls steeped in ravaging hot blood

Born to allow our emotions to flood

Prisoners to our passionate resolves

Seeking to our greedy powers evolve.

 

Should we ever vanquish our darken lusts

Break that stabbing blade that forever thrusts

Only then may we hear that dawning plea

To live and love true, daring to be free.

 

There within twilight's soft whispering breath

Resides divine words that can defeat death

Words of hope bathed in Beauty and Light

Treasures as can relieve saddest of plights.

There are so many emotions within each poem. The first poem holds sadness, a touch of tenderness. "Even most sincere prayers bring no peace" This thought tugs at my heart so deeply. The second poem is beautiful and romantic. Delicate and heavenly. The third poem tangles around all emotions at the same time. There is hope within. Your talent shines, my dear friend. Many wonderful blessings to you. Hugs, brandy

""Life is the truest beauty in this earthen realm. We are as ships upon oceans sailing along. Poets, each a wandering master at ship's helm. With heart and imagination cruising along. Eager for magic of dawn and life born anew. Time sacrificed in sweat, ink and pulsing blood. With family we may have a most valiant crew. And in that blessing feel love's ALL- into life flood.""

Thank you for your very insightful thoughts on this blog and my three poems therein my friend. Poetry is an Art form that one must find a way to balance with life, imho. As it has a way of being addictively consuming at times. True, there is always HOPE - as ,long as there is life. If one seeks balance, light and truth- such can and will eventually be found. God bless....

Today I finished the 4th poem for this new blog. I may after editing tonight or tomorrow -add it. Always a hard decision for me when adding an extra poem - but I feel this one will fit in well with the blog, the theme and the purpose of this blog...

MORE LINKS - https://interestingliterature.com/2020/04/planet-earth-poems-world/ LITERATURE 10 of the Best Poems about Planet Earth Selected by Dr Oliver Tearle Although poets have sometimes reached for the stars, for the moon, or for outer space and other planets, many have also written powerfully about what our own planet, Earth, is like. Below, we introduce ten of our favourite poems about planet Earth, the world we all know, but experience in very different ways. LATEST VIDEOS Sorry, the video player failed to load. (Error Code: 100013) Margaret Cavendish, ‘Of Many Worlds in This World’. Just like as in a nest of boxes round, Degrees of sizes in each box are found. So, in this world, may many others be Thinner and less, and less still by degree … So begins this poem from the remarkable seventeenth-century writer and scientist Margaret Cavendish, Duchess of Newcastle-upon-Tyne (1623-73), which captures the century’s vogue for scientific discovery and exploration (including Robert Hooke’s early work with microscopes), and reminds us that – in scientific but also social circles – our own vast world contains many smaller ‘worlds’. Alfred, Lord Tennyson, ‘Move Eastward, Happy Earth’. Many poets have written poems about the sunset, but here, Tennyson (1809-92) pays as much attention to planet Earth as he does to the waning sun. The poem is short enough to quote in full here: Move eastward, happy earth, and leave Your orange sunset waning slow; From fringes of the faded eve, O, happy planet, eastward go; Till over thy dark shoulder glow Thy silver sister-world, and rise To glass herself in dewy eyes That watch me from the glen below. Ah, bear me with thee, smoothly born, Dip forward under starry light, And move me to my marriage-morn, And round again to happy night.

Robert - I like "There Within Twilight's Soft Whispering Breath" very much. Good measure of the depravity of man and his only hope. A blessed Sunday to you my friend.

With the blessing that was sent me, I have now seen the dark days of my youth and how blind I was back then. Even as a poet back then I never saw what I needed because this world beat on me daily, yearly. Until I sought that true help. God bless.

In that poem there was no way not to make the comparison between life, and mankind's darkness. For it is so very often that darkness that invades and destroys love, happiness and families.

Thank you my friend. Of the three poems I composed for this blog , that was the one I felt the best about using. Tis true, each was a labor of love, of honoring life, love and poetry. Yet that was the one that was based more upon my life, my faith and my desire to honor poetry and my blessing in having finally found that treasure. God bless.

Sometimes being stubborn is a blessing in life but other times it is a curse. I have yet to decide how it is- in regards to my writings- my poetry!

Thank you my friend. I almost did not find the time, the will to complete this blog, But something drove me onward -despite my ill health. My dedication to poetry I suppose. The time used and the delays made the task even harder for me. But I've always been a very stubborn man , a stubborn poet as well. God bless.

I myself searched for decades before finding that which had been so very elusive. Only after a determined search was it found my friend. And sadly not found while in my youth !
