Rockabye – Poets for Peace

Michael from The Poetry Channel challenged me to record one of my poems this week as a way to share my message.  It’s been quite the challenge, but I welcome that!

And while it’s not quite where I want to be yet…(I’m rough around the edges)  With slowing down and practice, it might not be too bad.

This is a recording for my new grandbaby arriving next Springish.  It came to me in a dream when I was contemplating the state of things in the world and worried for his/her safety and well being.   And though it’s dark in the beginning, it’s hopeful in the end.

Thank you!




The Pain is Mine

The Poetry Channel

​I thought it was your tear
running down my nose.
I thought those were
your eyes that closed.
Your lungs that held
suspended breath.
Your arms left empty
and bereft.
Your throat that
could not swallow,
your mouth run dry.
Your hands that shook,
the aching sigh.
I thought it was
your heart that ceased,
no longer thrummed
its familiar beat.
I thought those were
your leaden feet
that stood beneath
those weakened knees
your soul that begged
please, please, please.
But then,
I realized,
in time,
the shock,
the grief,
the pain,
is mine.

What is Poetry?

English Lit Geek

Meaning of the word Poetry:

Poetry is a word of Greek origin. It comes from a verb with means “to make, to create”. A poem is “something made or created”. The poet is the creator and language is the material out of which s/he creates his/her work of art.


The precise origins of poetry are unknown. It is a very ancient art which was born as an oral form and accompanied by simple music and dance. it expressed what people regarded as meaningful and memorable in their lives: natural disaster, births and deaths, brave actions, dangerous enemies, battles, etc.

It was often part of religious rites. Poets and listeners enjoyed playing with words, choosing and arranging them to produce music and meaning.

What a poem is:

Today poems exist in printed form, but the careful choice and arrangement of words still account for the unique quality of poetry.
