With quiet yet firm tread
I move ‘midst cacophony of profoundly noisy hatred & fear.
be not afraid, for I bring strength of peace, harmony and unity
and a surety of purpose for all life on our home the planet Earth.
I am … Love!

Leave no room for hatred
It only brings one pain,
Focus on a loving heart
Where there is much to gain.
With much affection,
I first wrote and posted this about a year ago, I hope you enjoy:
For all you “Dr Who” lovers – a bit of fun! 🙂

Horton Hears a Tardis
The day started out simply pleasant
In fact Horton knew it was great,
His favoritest meal
the bestest real deal
Was of course a nut full of plates! (actually it’s “a plate full of nuts” but then it wouldn’t rhyme would it. hello?)
Suddenly, Horton hears a strange sounding
and thinks to himself “Oh, no …
Not Whoville again?
They just would not send …
In fact, this time I’ll refuse to go.
But it turns out it wasn’t the Whoville
But rather “Dr Who” that arrived,
In his tardis he came
Horton hardly could blame
The Whovilles for who was inside.
And so Horton looked at the tardis
and then, of course at Doctor Who,
he said “no offense
And don’t think me dense,
but exactly ‘Who are you?’ “
And of course Dr. Who replied “Brilliant”
“What a capital elephant you be,
for though we’ve just met
You already get
The person, of course ‘Who’ is me!”
And Horton looked first at the tardis
And once again at Doctor Who,
Still shaking his head
and wished for his bed
replied one more time “Who? Are you?”
“Yes I am”, the good doctor responded
“And most happy to meet you am I,
If you really don’t mind
and would be so kind
We must wait for the Dalek to arrive.”
Now Horton, as you know is a thinker
Deep thoughts are really his forte,
But Doctor Who was a puzzle
And in a bit of a fuzzle
Horton knew not what to say.
And so Dr. Who told him the story
The Daleks were bad guys, he knew,
So Horton told them (Dr. Who and his companions) to stay
And they left the next day (actually it was longer, but that doesn’t rhyme either),
The tardis, the Daleks, and Dr. Who.
Well Horton was glad when they vanished
Back to whenever they were from,
Now when Horton listens
He’s not listening for a who
but rather the sound of the drums (spoiler).
(you’ve gotta watch the tv series to figure the last line out!)
For all you “Dr. Who” TV fans I hope you enjoyed this little bit of farce! I don’t claim to have the talent of Dr. Seuss, but this was fun to write.
Have a great day!

“Such beauty you bless in the form of a rhyme.
Such feeling, such rhythm, your words so divine.
I am lost in your glory, sensation sublime,
Sharing forever, time after time.”

Memory’s rainbow rivulets,
reflecting fallen tears.
Hidden dreams lay dormant
behind the clouded years.
Eyes are keeping secrets
And yet as time goes by,
The colored rainbows answer,
falling from the eye.
Born upon the teardrops
revealing hidden gleams,
witness then, your memories –
in the mirror of your dreams.

Everyone have a wonderful dream filled weekend!
Up and up I reach so high
further than the mighty sky
further than the eagle soars
further than we’ve been before.
Up and up I reach to see
the universe can’t hide from me.
I’ll not abide, nor subside
’til my quest has opened wide
the “Why of This” so deep inside.
I must seek so I will know
these are seeds that I shall sow.
With this journey that I take
on the ‘morrow we may wake –
to golden, brighter, better, days
where good things will come our way!
But until that day arrives
upward, onward I will strive!
-Penny L Howe, 2013
Stay cool everyone, hang in there, believe in yourself and go for it, remember to make a positive difference while you achieve – Pay it forward, a win-win solution for everyone!
Much love to you,
I lay me down
look up at skies
no end in view
before my eyes.
Just perfect blue
or so it seems
my lying here
with just my dreams.
There’s only now
without the fears.
If I might wish
and make it so
my peaceful state
to grow and grow.
Then I will rise
renewed ’til when
I lay me down
and dream again.

A most happy weekend everyone,
What is it about the particular nature of a poem? Whether penning or reading. A poem sets itself apart from all other written words. Various sized packages of contained messages of our thoughts, our feelings, our expressions. We the author and presenter of chosen word and format.
Do we write for ourselves when we write a poem? Do we write for others? Yes and yes.
With poetry we tap directly into our feelings about things, bringing forth those emotions, thoughts and ideas inside of us to be viewed through our written words. We are reorganizing our insides when we do this. And when others read our poems they frequently will do the same thing.
Should you write a poem? Yes?
It’s therapeutic. Not only letting out what’s inside, but presenting a microcosm of your heart and soul you can view and share with others.
It’s wonderfully creative. Your journey through your own nature with the poetic word while you find yourself exploring all sorts of creative avenues of expression.
It is encouraging, helping you and others to “Open Up” inside. Writing poetry and sharing your words, creates a stronger environment for learning and growing yourself. Online today there are many *websites and forums – groups actively in pursuit of knowledge and understanding from poets of the past and present.
“Such beauty you bless in the form of a rhyme
Such feeling, such rhythm your words so divine

So today, write a poem and share with others, read a poem and enjoy someone else’s creation. Both will be uplifting and illuminating … I promise.
Have a great weekend,
