Today, I am committed to the joy of writing poetry. Becoming a weaver of words, transforming my imagination and inspiration into lyrical images and a joyful narrative has proven to be as rewarding as Chinese brush painting..
I am happy to introduce you to lines and stanzas excerpted from the Collected Poems of Howard Meyer.
These dainty children of the dawn
Are awakened by day's earliest breath
I slowed and stepped lightly
As their elegant cups unfolded
Colors of purple, blue, white and red
Leaves, veins and curling tendrils climbing from their bed...
The lotus is a symbol of summer
Her vibrant blossoms represent life and celebration
This writing was a joyous form of meditation
Quickly transformed into a journey of personal reflection
We are still imperfect; there is much to learn, everyone is a story unfinished...
Soft petals of purple are swaying in the breeze
Fragrant pendants hanging from nature's chandelier
Brightly colored butterflies flutter under this canopy of blossoms
A woven sense of natural wonder reminiscent of lavender lace...
