Happy Poetry Month…

I have been working on new ideas and brainstorming.  I have been participating in some of the daily writing prompts on Poetry Super Highway on Facebook and I have been getting down to learning about myself and poetry again.  I did start a new storyline arc about a flood-plane and I lost my steam.  I got bogged down in all the details.  I hope you will be patient and bare with me.  I am developing my own voice.  I am learning as I go along.  I will continue to share and post here on WordPress and I am more than happy to have any of you along for the ride.  I have also been reading poetry anywhere I can find it!  I look forward to continuing to connect with you all and would appreciate any input and encouragement you may be able to provide me with.  Sometimes an artist has to step back and take a look at the canvas!  There is a rhythm in every life, one just has to learn how to dance to it.

Laura’s Floating World

The make-shift raft that

Laura built for

herself and the crying baby she found

held their cold and shaking bodies

as they drifted

along past floating remnants

on the flood plane.

There were skeletons

of buildings and signs

laid to rest in the water.

Laura remembered how

forceful the water had

been that night when the rains

wouldn’t stop.

There were bodies in

the water too.

She carefully moved

around in the calm after

the storm and prayed

that there would

be no more rain.

Again the baby began to cry

Laura hoped they would

soon find food and a perhaps

a shelter from what was

floating by.

Where was Shane  in the floating world out on the flood plane? (pages stuck together after a search was made and dried in the sun).

How L. Found Herself On the Flood Plane

   L. had arrived at the town set in-between

        two rivers.

   S. had told her “Nothing ever happens here

He told her this was a safe place to be.

L. was thinking while she was beginning

to shed the clothes that

were weighing her down

He really didn’t see this coming’.

She is swimming

toward the CRY

that brought her to

life again.

How could S. not for see

the danger when the rains

began to fall

and the rivers were swelling?

L. knew for sure the CRY

was a baby but ‘how’ she

wondered could a baby

survive?

The pages of the diary are still drying and I am trying to make sure the writing is not lost.. Where S. is has not become known or who the baby is… The waters at this point have not subsided and L. is lost out on the flood plane….

The Flood Plain..(A NEW STORY ARC)

                         Floating on the sea of despair.  Lying in the water motionless,

             she is waiting

to be RESCUED until she hears

the Cry.

L. realizes that it was

not a CRY from within,

it came from somewhere

out on the sea of the Flood Plane.

The  she remembers that she

was dancing on a tilted floor

as the waters were rising.

What became of S. (where did he

get to in all of this?)?

Then the CRY becomes

more insistent

and she now realizes that

she needs to move.

Yet , she  feels numb

with fear or

is it just wet clothes?

She turns over and sees

what she is part of….

Is it SINK OR SWIM?

This is from the Diary of L. who is in love with S. and at this point she is not sure where he is in the” Sea of Despair” on the flood plain.  The diary is drying and the pages will come unstuck and then perhaps we will find out where the cries came from.

What’s On My Sleeve?

My heart would be the simple answer to this question, but I have to say it is a little more complex than that.  I have been sharing verse with you that has a specific theme and you know I write about what ever I am drawn to and as this year is coming to a close I am working out how the “FILES OF MS G.” can become a collection and I need to work on that. I will keep you posted.  I know they need some polishing and the narrative needs to be added to.  I am looking at new themes for the coming year and I am finding new sources of inspiration.

I will be back with more in the New Year and look forward to sharing what is on my mind with you and to extend my imagination and creativity in new directions. My heart and my soul are on my sleeve and I am interpreting what I am experiencing and I really can’t wait to share with you what I find.  Until then have a wonderful holiday season, embrace and enjoy your friends, your family and your life.  I look forward to 2013 and finding out what it brings. Let’s keep interpreting our hearts and souls.  I love to experience other people’s creativity and interpretations of the world. May you be bathed in the light of love and creativity.

Letter: From the Director of the Centre For Point of Impact Studies

                               Letter to this Newspaper: to be printed for our readers

Dear readers,

I assure that there is nothing sinister going on

at our research facilities.

We are healing people

who have suffered from their

point of impact injuries.

All of our patients and test subjects

are here on a voluntary basis.

They are free to leave

at any time.

As for Ms G. investigative reporter

thinking she has uncovered

any wrong-doing

she is free to speak with myself

or any of my staff members at

anytime if she were only

to identify herself

to us

we would be more than happy to

accommodate her.

Her releasing certain files

of our patients has made it necessary

for me to send another letter regarding their

treatments

with full agreement on their part.

This is the first in a series of  letters received from B. Jacobs who is the Head Director of  Welder Industries. Jacobs insists that they relocated their research facilities because the land lease was up.  We will continue to investigate and keep you informed.  Next Week: A letter regarding certain patients and an article regarding our investigative reporter Ms G. who we hope is truly safe and ready to share her stories with us.  If  you or any member of your family have been or are involved with this particular study please contact us for an interview.

The Troubled Life of Toby Brown… Case Studies File 116-2012

 Toby Brown

was a fine specimen

of a young man whose life was

going in a

successful-direction.

The injury that Toby sustained

took place on campus.

The Point-of-Impact Studies

revealed that his heart stopped for at

least five minutes

when it  hit him.

Toby had a mind shattering

experience that has made

it impossible to concentrate.

The studies appear to have

revealed the following:

1. The patient has lost his sense of

direction.

2. His memory of the events that

impacted his mind, body and spirit

have yet to be revealed.

3.  Toby Brown is an excellent

candidate for further studies.

4. Daily interviews will be necessary

with this patient once

medication and treatment cycles are

complete.

Ms G. filing this report from inside the Research facilities. It appears as though Toby had a trauma that brought him to the attention of this group of researchers and another of our reporters is  looking into the campus recruitment  of this particular individual.  We will keep you posted and all of these files are also being sent to the Attorney General for further investigation.
