Lately I thought about adding some poetry to my art and paintings but I do not care much for rhymes although I like some meter and proportion sort of like Walt Whitman.  Here are a few about a special friend of mine who passed on back in May.  The first is patterned after Song of Songs 2:14 and not finished, and the second is a longer one based on several ideas, and in 4 stanzas~~~~~~

Terry-

"My dear friend in the cleft of the rock,

in the hiding places on the mountainside,

I miss your face,

I wish we could hear your voice,

for your voice is kind,

and your face is sweet and friendly.."

(NOTE: My friend Terry, like me was a traveler and would sometimes hike).

Oh My Terry-

"Oh my Precious lady---Now my soul is shaken, And what shall I say?  Father save me from this hurt, but life brought me to this hour.

I think dear Lord that some kind of  Glory can come of it?  --for Thee.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Precious Terry much loved soul of the rustic zone, full of travel and spunk, you have befriended many many varied folks,

and that includes me..

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Beloved Terry your travels were many and your eyes have seen many vistas: Canyons grand, capital reef, stone arches, and mountains

galore, places far flung, and midvars to and fro, but your friendship was a gift from God and many have loved thee ..

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sentimental  lady, the world is less without your love for many, including the various beasts, but I know you have traveled to a higher

land, and wait for many: including me.."

  • For awhile I have had the desire to produce a book based on some of my blogs and postings from several sites. I have not decided on which things to choose. Just a few days ago I found a prayer that my late grandmother, Ruby, penned, in a photo album. I am seriously thinking about it all.
    • That would be a lovely memorial to your grandmother. As to choosing which of your blogs, etc. to use, I have found that when you pray about it the pieces seem to come together like a jigsaw puzzle, that form a picture or framework. The Spirit guides you, as I am sure you already realise, by just giving you a positive or negative feeling about each piece. My God bless you in your choice Steve.
  • I am very old-school in that to me poetry should rhyme, and generally, poetry leaves me a bit cold. The very few poems that I have penned have been given to me 'as is'. So I was surprised when this tugged at my heart. A lovely sentiment Steve.
    • This is the first time I posted poems online.
    • Steve the poems that I have posted here are my entire efforts in verse, the first one just came into my head, it took about five minutes to type it up. I looked at it just as if I had never seen it before. The same goes for the others, I honestly don't know where they came from other than the Spirit.
  • Just Beautiful!
