“[Henry David] Thoreau is a keen and delicate observer of nature - a genuine observer - which, I suspect, is almost as rare a character as even an original poet; and Nature, in return for his love, seems to adopt him as her especial child, and shows him secrets which few others are allowed to witness.” – Nathaniel Hawthorne (Journal entry, September 1, 1842)
With Businesses taking so much infrastructure out of bush towns it leaves many bush youths no option but to head for the city. Some kids do well but not all. Many of our Vietnam Veterans faced big struggles after they returned as well as their family members. I wanted to combine the situations into one th make folk aware.
There are a lot of movies that uses poetry in its script. Take for example, John Singleton's "Poetic Justice" and "Out of Africa" by Sydney Pollark. Yet I was moved the most by the 2010 release "For Colored Girls," directed by Tyler Perry. It was adapted from the stage play written by Ntozake Shange originally titled "For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf."
poem written after "Tarumba" by the Mexican Poet Jaime Sabines.
We are all capable of great things, great moments, greatness ... But, we cannot perform and enjoy the rewards of our greatness unitl we understand the measure of ourselves, the depth of our personal beliefs must be a oneness of mind, body, soul, and spirit.
I spent many summer nights playing hide the thimble. The only rule was that the thimble be hid in plain sight. At times it was on the end of Grammas little finger or over the buttons on her overalls. When I was 15, my 7 year old brother was killed in a car accident. I had spent alot of time with him. He new the words to my music.Carry on my Wayward Son, by Kansas and Sugar Mountain By Neil Young. My innocent poetic heart sucked in life with all it had to offer.I was so grief stricken after his death that i cried for three months; resulting in Trench Mouth, a condition that causes the gums to poor blood if any sucking motion is performed. It was in this greif that i realized to the level my heart could break it could also love. Iwas capable of great love!
Daddy, look into my infant eyes
When you hold me and speak to me;
See that I am listening
And feeling safe and at ease.
And although I have not learned to form words,
If I could speak,
I would say,
"I'll always need you".
