Beautiful poem. I love how you used the color blue-

"All this time you've been the one who turned the calendar pages,
the one who promised the blue and the deliverance of the waves."

I loved those words. The color blue brings to the mind hope, peace, trust, and dreams...


Blessings,

El Campeador

JM, please add me to  your long list of admirers! Your writing is simply outstanding!
---and this piece is exceptionally fine!

I think I'll go back and read it again!...

P.S. I also love Khalil Gibran. I ever borrowed "The Prophet" from someone and wrote it out in longhand!

Warm hugs,
Linda

And all I have to say is,"It's about time!" Now this was just "pure poetry" and I felt this one right down to the tips of my pink painted toes.  Spendid work JM.

El_Campeador ... thank you so much for your lovely, insightful, reply...Welcome to Poetry Land ... so nice to meet you. I look forward to reading your work.


Capt.... are you trying to get a moth tarred and feathered and strung up in the forums???? If your posting depends on my scarce muse posting then we are both gonna be MIA. and besides...how am I gonna be inspired if I dont have your poetry to spark me muse??? OH well a moths gotta do what a moths gotta do....but it was a nice try anyway...I already saw your reply on a post this morn where you said it was your last one for a while... LOL... was that moth-child psychology you were trying to use on me moody muse     

Linda...thank you so much...so good to have you back in the blue...
Mark B turned me on to KG's work ...lots of wisdom and truth in his words.
thank you poetess for such a wonderful, warm reply.  

Susan ... well if you can hear me from way over there, then Im doing something right.  thanks girlie for your enthusiastic reply...gotta give some credit to the ocean,
its a whole new kind of pretty blue flame, lol  

Sharon...pink toes...well then they match your new kitchen...How Martha Stewart of you  LOL...thank you dear poetess for your "splendid" reply.  

Manisha .... thank you golden sparkly one... your reply has a shine all its own

If made to choose between the power of writing a poem
or the ecstasy of a poem unwritten I would choose ecstasy
In the end it is better poetry

‘How do I redirect adoration and devotion?
How do I cancel commitment and constance?
Will I be able to breathe when oxygen is denied?
Will I still feel the fire if the flame is extinguished?
Where will inspiration come from if not intensity of emotion?’

This is my favorite verse.  It perfectly poses the questions of what will come of loves bounty should its object no longer exist.  Every line of this is perfect.

‘Who holds these secrets, who is the keeper of the keys?
For what feels like forever, I have believed it was you ...’

The childlike sincerity of this line has made me smile, every time I’ve read it.

'Only your voice could ever compete with their calming constance.'

Real.  INYKIN

'Not even the summer solstice captivated me as much as you in
perpetual motion, leaving me as awestruck as I was by the ocean.'

As many days as I’ve spent on the ocean, as many times as I’ve been in love…I’ve never experienced the two together.  So, you’re saying it’s nice, huh?  

'I've no grasp beyond gratuity, no such securities of self preservation.
Like shooting stars and the sustaining rain ... I only know how to fall.'

To quote one of my least favorites of your expressions   *W*  …’moth anthem’

'This time I fell the farthest for the beauty of the ocean's blue ...
most of all, I took the fall for the brilliant blues hidden in the hues of you.'

This line kind of has a treasure hunt feel to it that I love and that I think represents the whole of your experience.  Knowing there was treasure to find but still so unprepared for the enormity of its power and beauty.  And of course, without a clue how you’ll ever live without it…again.

It was a great summer, huh?
(You know, distilled this works out to 427 poems!)

Love it when your heart talks Jams.

"Where will inspiration come from if not intensity of emotion?"

"Like shooting stars and the sustaining rain ... I only know how to fall."

A beautiful, breath-taking piece, Janet Marie. So very descriptive ... vivid imagery and emotion that flows so well from your pen. And the questions ... oh, you know I love the questions, JM. A thought-provoking ponder that digs deep inside to look for the answers. Very much enjoyed, gator-gal ... that ocean blue has given you many answers ... and ... beautiful inspiration.

Best wishes and hugs,
/Kit

(PS ... loved the additional piece just above as well.)

My mothy friend, these words...

"I was never given the empowerment of this knowledge,
this kind of confidence is beyond my capabilities.
This emotional deliverance seems as improbable
as my turning off the sunrise or silencing the wind.
I lack the strength required to reverse the rain,
to move a mountain aside, to turn away the tides.
I possess no secrets of how to sequester the seasons."

are as lovely as your heart,
and move me in ways I can not express..
  Thank you.....

I must have had my momma's will
and Gods Amazing Grace...

I'm a survivor....

Thank God, or this masterpiece might not exist!
Why in the world would anyone want to silence the wind anyway?
Never mind, I already know you are too smart to try that trick.

This emotional deliverance seems as improbable
as my turning off the sunrise or silencing the wind.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Once found, this sort of truth- or deliverance, can't be changed.
The freedom to feel is just too real.
