All The Poems

All the poems
I've never written
are stored on heart shelves
and lobes of tender thought,
hidden in veins and vessels,
seasons of pain, hardened
remnants of experience,
vascular and warm.

All the poems
I've never written
fear miscarriage of meaning,
and the laughter of misunderstanding.
They dawdle and hem-haw,
unwilling--yet, wanting
to be cognizant and secular,
spiritual and whole.

To tremble on the threshold of lips,
to be fluid on air,
a pulsating manuscript,
a verbal glimpse into
the chambers that hold captive
all the poems
I've never written.

About the Poet
I am a Christan mother, grandmother, wife, aspiring poet, and owner of a bed and breakfast with my husband of 37 years. I love to create an ambience of serenity in my home. I love soft music, the sounds of the birds in my yard, the whir of the ceiling fans,... Time has passed since the first time I wrote my Poet Bio...it has been three years now....in that time my life has changed drastically. We lost our beloved youngest child, our only son, to suicide. It has been devastating...shaking my faith to its core but not destroying it. I have not been inspired to write for quite some time now. I pray that I will be able to emerge from this pain and write with a new passion about my journey. Until that time I ask for prayers and that God will continue to speak to me and give me the peace that passes all understanding.
