Stars Above (alouette)

Starry nights shine bright
Thousands of wee lights
Constellations light the sky
Darkness shows contrast
While clouds have gone past
Suspended in time up high

Pisces and Leo
Taurus and Virgo
Constellations light the sky
Sagittarius
Libra, Pegasus
Worlds of tiny lights float by

Poetry gives voice to what the eyes see and the heart hears.

Inspiration exists all around us. Beauty can be found in the laughter of a child or the blooms of a tree. Poems are one person’s interpretation of the world seen through their eyes and felt in their heart. Poetry is soul food – plain and simple.

Voices of Nature is a collection of poems that reflect the inherent splendor of nature all around us. This book utilizes a variety of poetry forms to paint word pictures.

One review said “The sheer variety of styles in this poetry book is amazing. Haiku, triple haiku, acrostic, rondeau, and so many others. Even better is that they explain the poems in the back, which is a great service to the curious reader.

Each poem is clear and paints a perfect picture of nature. Though, I have an odd feeling that both poets were tired of winter since that had the most amount of poems out of the season sections. It’s hard to pick a favorite, but I did love the ‘Thunder and Lightning’ acrostic for the imagery and ‘New Day’ for the complicated style and bringing an odd sense of serene closure to the book.

I would highly recommend this poetry book. Even if you’re not into poetry, the pieces for every season will probably have you going ‘I thought the same thing.’

Pamela previously released a collection of love poems titled Dreams of Love with several five star reviews. She has been writing for a short time, but pours her soul into her poetry.

Horizon

Anticipation.

Is nothing

as exciting

and fulfilling

and real

as a dream

on the horizon?

Simple Truths

Dreams:

just a snooze button barrier

preventing them from

becoming reality-

but I keep hitting snooze

 

(so I can keep dreaming)

Winter

the feel of the air,

harshness of light,

the tone of the day

all new,

changed

with just the opening

of the door.

Maughwauwama

Maybe

Just maybe,

you’re hearing me,

seeing things,

perceiving,

incorrectly.

 

Have you ever

stopped

to think?

 

But no,

perception is reality,

so we must be in Wyoming.

 

Sobering Thoughts

A strangling grip

must be maintained.

 

For,

if the glass fell

and spilled,

that would be alcohol abuse

and she

would still be sober.

Nighttime poetry

I’ve been having really strange dreams for about a week now. People from College mixed with Katniss Everdeen (no I have not seen the 2nd Hunger Games movie yet) and being turned into a stone statue, and being trapped on an island, and spiders biting my toes (turned out to be my kitten) and all sorts of weird stuff.

So I haven’t been super excited to go to sleep the last few nights, and so I end up turning my light on about 10 times after I’ve turned it off to write down to-do lists, play with apps on my phone, and occasionally write a poem or two. Here’s one:

 

I stared into the fire

that had been eating

at my heart

“What the hell do you know?”

it screamed,

fingers

of heat melting my face.

 

“Absolutely nothing”

I spat,

smiling at the ensuing steam.

Girly Grin

Just a few little comments,

a loving gaze,

and a perfect kiss

are enough to keep

 

a girly grin

on a girly face

for a very long time.

Escape Artist

Wide eyes,

nodding head,

not perfectly still,

but not fidgety either.

Pleasant responses,

acceptable body language,

 

Secretly,

surprisingly,

necessarily,

worlds away.

Forget

Forget those illusions,

your dreams

that don’t align with what your

waking mind wants and craves.

 

For dreams may be reflections

of waking thoughts,

but they can be as twisted

and ill-conceived

as drunken ideas

and other moments of genius

shrouded in insanity.

 

That is to say,

that dreams can bear juicy peaches

or poisonous berries.

 

 

So don’t follow your night visions

simply because they exist.

Just as you wouldn’t follow a drunkenly conceived lifelong plan

simply because you were intoxicated when it occurred to you.

 

Measure those thoughts,

weight them for what they’re worth.

And don’t be afraid to forget.
