Poem: Stand Tall, Guard, and Defend

Stand your ground, Impassioned and righteous. The kingdom still stands at your back. Tradition and history, Urge you on to maintain the line, And push back that which threatens to destroy. Forces outside endanger that within. Stand tall, guard, and defend. You know the path, the way to go. Falter not, brave warrior, Time and … Continue reading Poem: Stand Tall, Guard, and Defend

Poem: Enjoying the Beauty of Centuries Past

Relaxing with paintings, Half a world away, Enjoying the beauty of centuries past. From the masters of the ages, Step into each image, Dance and swim in the picture, Leap out and start again. Different styles and colors, Still scenes just the same. People, landscapes, and other things, Lives held within a moment, In a … Continue reading Poem: Enjoying the Beauty of Centuries Past

Poem: For Flowers, Lace, and Antique Things

For flowers, love, Lace and antique things. The stories they have to tell, Grasp some more than others. Relax and listen to the spin of yarn, By various mouths and voices, Some silent and others interpreting, Tales short and long. Follow their steps through the past. Embrace the memories, emotions, and more, And so keep … Continue reading Poem: For Flowers, Lace, and Antique Things

Keeping time held within, To hold the essence of the … Continue reading Poem: Welcome the Creative Conservator

Thunder pounding, rolling, building, Bursting, feel the striking within, Energy current flowing through Power crackling, from my fingers out, Connecting with the storm outside, Blood drumming in concert rhythm, Eerie sky crackles loudly, Heart expanding to meet the power, Letting loose a howl to match the wind, Rushing strength, flowing freedom, Exhilaration of the world … Continue reading Poem: Connecting to a Storm

Poem: The Energy of a Forge

The hammering and the striking, The bellows blow, maintaining a fire, Up down, the air flows, Forming, building, crafting more, Hear the ringing, Life blood pounding, flowing. Shield and shovel born within, Sword and sickle repaired once more, Tools of life or death given form. Within these walls the master works. Both a science and … Continue reading Poem: The Energy of a Forge

Poem: Born walking forward

Born walking forward, Life moving crystalline, Sharp edges, soft curves, No matter where the road goes. Step one, then many more, Some fore, others aft, Always shifting with the wind, Keeping an eye on the clouds. Building, working, forming, Grab the wheel, strike the hammer, Feel the weight, And keep the path. Guiding star above … Continue reading Poem: Born walking forward
