This Is How We Are Blessed

Selfless and passionate
birds cry,  melodic.

Rivers and lakes
streams and oceans,
the great majestic seas
roil like thunder,
yet rest our weary souls
onshore.

This is how we are blessed.

The trunks of trees bear limbs
reaching down and out
from heavens sweaty brow,
holding our hands
made of elm and birch,
of oak and fir,
thunderous heads of hair,
crowns of chakras, all colors,
falling, falling as leaves,
blanketing grass, emerald and awake,
blinding our senses silly –

And this, this is how we are blessed.

Listen -
the human heart beats
like tribal drums,
circled by ancestral fires,
pounding treble and bass,
prodding the spirit onward,
towards destiny,
towards fate,
towards the next step -
forward.

In this mad world,
this great globe,
this utterly insane
human existence,

is beauty.

Yes.

This, this is how we are blessed.

    Thank you for sharing your lovely poem! Do you decide to write and deliberately search for inspiration in specific things, or does inspiration/the desire to write just come to you?

      You are welcome Olivia, thank you for reading. No, I just write when it sparks. I have no idea when that will occur or what will inspire that and it usually comes out in poetry.

        Thank you! I love to write, and I'm always curious about writers' processes and whether a strategy they use can help me, too.

          I know a lot of people do have strategies and times set aside to write and for poetry, thankfully, it just occurs with me. When I write an article or book review or something journalistic, that is definitely a different process. For that type of writing, I do need to set aside time and research and edit. I have to be in the mood to write though. If I do not feel like writing then it is going to sound flat or forced. Good on the writing! I just write when it strikes me and send that to my own email and go over it later if I feel it is not complete or when an idea or thought strikes me I must write it down or document/record that idea immediately or it is lost.
