the wind and the sea

batter me – sting my skin – burn my eye

clear sky : same sea scrolls

lonliness and silence

loneliness and silence

loneliness and silence…
resurrect me
like rain on petals
sun
on stems
darkness
on roots.

loneliness and silence…
touch my thighs
they quiver
touch my toes
they scrunch
touch my nails
they shine.

loneliness and silence…
push my breaths
to heaven
push my love
to space
push my cells
to eternity.

sometimes the cello

holds the aura

moves your soul

to another plane

where it dances solo

dreams, reality and fantasy

dream with the moon and

grow up with the sun-spread the

light on real talents!

Donald Hall

born in Hamden, Connecticut (1928), who once said, “Every good poet in the world has written only a few terrific poems.”
At 89 years old, he longer writes poetry. “Not enough testosterone,” he says. Instead, he’s turned to prose: his last book is collection called Essays After Eighty (2014). Starting the book was simple. He said, “One day I looked out the window and began writing about being an old man looking out the window at the year going by.”
Hall was educated at Exeter, where he played softball with visiting poet Robert Frost, whom Hall remembers as “a spoiled brat,” even though Frost was 79 years old at the time. It was at Exeter that Donald Hall decided to become a writer. He’d been enamored of horror movies as a kid, which led him to reading Edgar Allan Poe, and trying to write like Poe, but at 14, he befriended some Yale students who kept mentioning a poet named T.S. Eliot. He says: “I saved up my allowance and bought the little blue, cloth-covered collected Eliot for two dollars and fifty cents and I was off. I decided that I would be a poet for the rest of my life and started by working at poems for an hour or two every day after school. I never stopped.”
Donald Hall’s books of poetry include Exiles and Marriages (1955), The Yellow Room (1971), Kicking the Leaves (1978), The One Day (1988), and Old and New Poems (1990). He’s a former U.S. poet laureate.

My son taught the grands

to keep only the needed

while my fiery hair

throws gifts

Ellen Hinsey-poet
“Contrary to a generally held view, poetry is a very powerful tool because poetry is the conscience of a society. […] No individual poem can stop a war — that’s what diplomacy is supposed to do. But poetry is an independent ambassador for conscience: It answers to no one, it crosses borders without a passport, and it speaks the truth. That’s why … it is one of the most powerful of the arts.”

Definition #382 Opinions

Elizabeth Cady Stanton said:

“The moment we begin to fear the opinions of others

and hesitate to tell the truth that is in us,

and from motives of policy are silent when we should speak,

the divine floods of light and life no longer flow into our souls.”
