Special words worth reading...

This is the first album in the 'Art of the Diver' series which collectively contains a total of 50 original poems, haiku and quotes. Written by NZ poet Pearldiver, this unique collection has been written from a fresh, positively creative perspective. In this album several subjects including hope, love, life circles and nature are covered, all woven into a set of profound poems that provide a solid representation of the range, talent and depth of the poet.

Though each poem in itself is worthy of it's own individual publication, here the author has chosen to provide his readers with a collection of interesting mixed pieces that compliment each other and do genuinely as a series, collectively highlight the art of the diver and how the value and sincerity of words can be enhanced, when spoken or written from the heart.

The unique poetry works contained in this album include:

'High Tide' - a short verse on drowning.

'Awkward Shyness' - about the shy bravado of youth.

'The Dying Art of Being Sentimental' - about how we evolve within a life circle.

'Letting Go The Pain' - about being able to walk away from an abusive relationship.

'You Reap What You Sow' - about Love and what it takes to find it.

'Best Recipe for Learning' - an interesting quote about learning.

'Will You Remember' - about lovers in a war zone (the Civil War).

'Oh How We Dwell' - about what we don't do when we should.

'Scar Value' - a quote about experience.

'Come Tomorrow' - about waiting for a lover.

'From a Leaf's Perspective' - about shallow minded people.

'Children of War' - a short poem for lost innocence.

‘High Tide’

Raising a limb to break the surface

When unseen and without possibility of rescue

Only serves to pull me down further than before

Though I try to climb above the summit of my fear

All I can do in reality is to, not panic and succumb

Closed eyes to measure this current’s growing strength

Flowing to unknown depths and in review, flow all life’s highs


Making love with you…

Such wet thoughts, are but fluid sighs…

There are no set rules for youth.

Awkward is...

‘Awkward Shyness’

I remember a far younger you

Flirting more directly than other girls

In almost boyish style you faced the world

Carrying something very attractive, fresh and new

Something in your confident, flashing eyes that smiled

As you tried to draw attention to the lift of your breasts

Searching my face for any sign, that I had noticed them and you

Awkward is our youth so often, in such circumstance

Where there are no rules, on who should break the ice

No synchronized flirtation, to raging music, or any spontaneous chance

So each day, you walked my dog, maybe he walked you

Great Dane, great personality, his great awkwardness of youth

And so you were noticed, in noble company, with perkiness and control renewed

I never shared my thoughts, or the feelings that I carried then of you

So often, youthful awkward shyness, shapes our lives and what we do...

The Dying Art of Being Sentimental.
The Dying Art of Being Sentimental. | Source

The Dying Art of Being Sentimental’

I believe that unlike elephants, mankind evolves carelessly

And moves further away from before, with each child born

Each generation less content and seeking more

Of what they deem to be, the perfection of youth

Leaving those things perceived to be redundant

And of no relevance to current trends and whims

Left choking and neglected on dusty plains of yesteryear

Consigned to inevitable death, but at least archived

Oh how I once pursued the perfection of my youth

And thus ensured that children would ultimately be its testament

Oh how one searches for those tangible things, one’s parents ignored

Embracing life completely oblivious, to the dying art of being sentimental

Or what it takes to consider the irony of its relevance, to every caring life

How it announces the reality of drawing closer to one’s own death

And highlights, how carelessly man has evolved, within one lifetime

By its very irrelevancy and absence, in the minds of apathetic children and elephants

Hopeful of completing a full life circle, yet moving further away from before...

Evolving... in the dying art of being sentimental...

‘Letting Go the Pain’

Has time shown you lady, how bruises fade with your pain

How to find your inner strength within a broken, vulnerable heart

To let go and realize that you can really be, making a brand new start

Towards happiness and with new belief in you, you will surely love again

Has time shown you lady, how pain fades when hopes come true

How determined strength found, has helped to mend a now, not so bruised heart

And factually why in the end, letting go helped you realize, how easy it was to start

A deserved journey to find happiness and how real love will come true, when you do…

___Just believe in You __

‘You Reap What You Sow’

Love you are truly magnificent

Traffic stops to watch you go by

Men forget what they were doing

And why

Like fools they send you roses

They’re all the same, average guys

No flowers could ever match your fragrance

But they’ll never realize

Love only commits to the best

Those who understand your need to roam

Lovers who’ll never take you for granted

You took me home

Ah Love, how your beauty sparks the fires

Crowds gather in the hope you will appear

You could be anywhere in the world, you wish to be

Yet you are here

Oh Love, such power in your presence

It’s in your every move, your incredible style

You just always make our world a better place

When you stay awhile

See all those unhappy people searching

They don’t appreciate how love helps them grow

Falling short with their demands and expectations

They reap, exactly what they sow

Love, you give great reasons for living

Throughout my life, you’ve removed my every fear

Love, you really could, be anywhere, you wish to be

But you chose here…

‘Will You Remember?’

Will you always remember the secret nights we shared?

To avoid your father finding us together in the dark

In those hazy days we sneaked away from chores

And ran openly across fields of wild spring flowers

Making love and new promises, beneath the larks

Remember how happy our lives were, before the war

Now we can no longer even be friends, our families say

Lovers unable to be, all pray for peace to be restored

Gone all purpose, all reason, our larks have flew away

And all we damned, unwilling enemies, told to ignore

Every feeling, every real thought we had had before

Always remember that I fired my rifle, into the wall

Not to kill an enemy, a brother, or your father, at all

Though both fired and killed the enemy that they saw

And wondered why you ran to me, to break my fall

To seal a memory, a secret, a fate of love so sure

How truly great our lives could've been, if not abandoned to a war!

How we dwell.
How we dwell. | Source

‘Oh How We Dwell’

Will we ever not be so selfish?

As to erase great future potential

With sad, angry feelings of the past

Will we ever not be so blind?

As to refuse to look beyond what we currently, foolishly see

From within pride’s perceived fears

Will we ever not be so sensitive?

As to allow such senseless, heartfelt punishment

To grow, to influence and to last

Will we ever not be so tormented?

As to find such unforgiving conflict, behind welling, absent tears

When will we be honest?

Just be, strong enough, to care, to break

Thus not reliving and endorsing, such cursed habits cast

Oh how we dwell

And now we’ve changed

Oh how we fell

To fate, so prearranged

Oh how we sell

The needs ignored

Though we don’t tell

How much we’re flawed

Oh how we blame and don’t admit

Oh how it’s wrong

Hollow reasons fit

Oh how we dwell and then with it, we just die

Can’t say, “I’m sorry”

Yet don’t know why

We've just dwelt...

But oh, how we dwell!

The value and significance of scars.

‘Come Tomorrow’

When I shut my eyes and focus on you, you are here

As tiredness seduces welcome slumber, you are here

You know my vulnerability, my hopes and my inner dreams

You know how much I miss you and desire you, it seems

You always come to me when you need to, just to let me know

And constantly remind me why I need, to need you so

And why, when I woke today, I felt you were so near

Oh how I wish these missing times, were not so slow...

Come tomorrow, oh come tomorrow

Perhaps, you will be here…

‘From a Leaf’s Perspective’

Sadly, there are those who constantly complain

About things of which they have given little thought.

With complete absence of perspective, in ignorance of life

Negatively altering the composition of perfectly good air

Bleating until others change, or give way to enforced pettiness

How sad, that we are constantly asked to listen to, agree with

And to accept, people clearly more negative than ourselves!

How sad, that their attitudes do not allow them to raise their sights

Or to think, or to see the immense beauty and natural wonders of nature

Or beauty in other life existing; beyond the questionable reach of their noses

How hollow are their decisions made, to cut down deciduous trees

Merely because such trees thoughtlessly, intentionally drop their leaves

Scattered, intrusive leaves, born only to upset well practiced moaners

Those same empty minded, unimaginative, ignorant few who do

Constantly complain, with no understanding of the trees they pursue

Or God’s reasons for and all the obvious purposes of

Autumn leaves, just blowing through…

Walnut Ships.
Walnut Ships.

Hope...frees the young spirit.

‘Children of War’

Walnut ships make their way to the coast

Toward fate unknown, a courageous, tiny invasion armada

Conveyed anticipation too great, for others to appreciate

In each arrival’s joy, waves of mixed emotions break

Billowing sails and rising tides, bring them ever closer

Ever more relevant to this day, their time in history

We built walnut ships to carry the hopes of each child

Sailing, with the hope that one day, all children will be free

And their childhood dreams will be...

      Hi LT, thank you for your positive review of this album of poems and I hope that the passionate appearance of the chimp in 'You Reap What You Sow' was not lost on the occasion :) Quite a mission reading an album like 'Art of the Diver - Hope' I know, but it is one part of a unique collection that in total, determines whether or not I can write in my style, successfully...

      So I appreciate all constructive critique and the ability to gauge how my readers find my works... Your interpretation of 'Come Tomorrow' is excellent and certainly not considered as being pessimistic by me in any respect... hope is the underlying theme throughout this album. The second album is called 'Portfolio' and contains a whole different mix to these poems... Thanks for your compliments LaThing and cheers for taking the time to read my works... as always.. take care.. PD

      Beautiful set of poems, with such moving, and touching messages! I loved all of them, but picked Come Tomorrow as the one that I liked the best. Why? It has that sad element to it, waiting for someone that's not there, and hoping that they will return.....( Ok, I am a pessimist, sometimes!). Enjoyed this piece very much...... And enjoyed Vincent's comment..... Moved me to tears!

      Anyway, voting it up and everything, you are a wonderful poet, with your own unique style. And I never said that you were related to Bubbles the Chimp! Well, not in so many words...... Ok, Ok, just joking! :)

      Have a good one..... Dear PD

      Wow Ken... I am both taken aback and extremely grateful that you have taken the time to read and review each poem in this album... Having read a lot of your work and got to know you here, I have a great deal of respect for your opinion, so this effort of yours is really appreciated also because it helps me gauge the quality of the poetry that I write.

      'High Tide' describes the thought process of a near death experience and what in a real life event was considered before unconsciousness set in.. a bit abstract, I guess.. 'Awkward Shyness' in itself is a whole story that just flowed with the message, but it does represent exactly what occurs for many in those clumsy days of youth..

      'The Dying Art of Being Sentimental' I enjoyed writing this because it contains a raft of issues and feelings, which really do occur, merely because of changing lifestyles and peer pressure... elephants are known to be extremely sentimental creatures... maybe humans are missing it's overall relevance to our very being... 'Letting Go the Pain' is about the hard choices that must be made to let go, to enable us to reach a better place and thus regain our self worth..

      'You Reap What You Sow' is really a conversation with Love and how love chooses her suitors, as opposed to us (as people) believing that we demand her presence in our lives... She (Love) ultimately declares who she favors, not visa versa.. 'Will You Remember' is about the unseen casualties of conflict and how life is influenced by factors that are often beyond us..

      'Oh How We Dwell' is yet another poem that encompasses conflict, but more from a family perspective, where people genuinely don't seek to resolve their issues, in preference to ignoring what simple things it takes to actually be open with each other.. 'Come Tomorrow' - well, I think you completely nailed it in your summary Ken..

      'From a Leaf's Perspective' - is a poem of disbelief, one of how we have accommodated totally ignorant, empty minded people in our world, at the expense of the beauty that nature provides and to many, remains unseen everyday... 'Children of War' is about the loss of innocence, represented by walnut shell boats, for children throughout the world, but more specifically those who have been hurt or destroyed by war and conflict... we see that same thing in the Middle East and Taliban victims...

      This album has been written to provide a range of poems that can each be interpreted in numerous ways and represent real life situations for people taking the time to do what you have my friend..

      I write slowly.. so I guess my poems are best appreciated when read slowly.. and I figure if you read them aloud, then you can hear their heartbeat and flow... I'm so pleased that you consider my work worthy of the words used... Once again.. thank you and you take care.. PD

      This first work is astounding with it's depth anf fluidity and flow. I especially loved this verse " Drowning…Making love with you…

      Such wet thoughts, are but fluid sighs. " brilliant my poet.

      Oh I remembe so well in my youth the "Awkward Awareness" the shyness between us both as we both danced slowly around our emotions and grew into each others style, her showing this awkaward boy the beauty she possessed both outwardly and inwardly. Oh how we manged to find a sync. I enjoyed this piece as well, a memory of my awkwardness.

      "The Dying Art of Sentimental" I linger on this page for quite some time consuming it's meaning, and I wept.

      "Letting Go the Pain" So many of us have had difficulty with letting go, I know I have as it shows in my poetry time and time again. Yet moving forward I must and do. I felt the message being given here to a lady to let go and I hope your piece here has helped with that my friend. Beautiful worded.

      " You Reap what You Sow" I hope this lover in your life sees the love in your heart as you do in hers. I truly believe that humans do reap what we sow and my friend I have experienced it grow from what I sowed in my past as well. The meaning is symbolic, much like "an eye for an eye" there is always a pay back of some kind in this life.

      "Will You Remember" One often wonders how many loves have been shattered due to war and it's unkindness to two lovers of different heritage, yet so deeply in love, but UGLY is WAR that separates them for life, oh ANGER the angy people shout as we depart never to unite but to remember and hold dear to our hearts those days and nights we shared while people shouted war all around us. Pearl, another impact piece that I felt and digested...thank you.

      "Oh How We Dwell" Indeed, to bury the hatchet, to forgive, to remember and never forget, living with the pain that the past inflicts on our minds and our sorrows stay close. Oh how we dwelled, I as that my creator forgive me for my trangressions and how I dwelled. We are all accountable for our actions in this, our past and future lives. Another poem Pearl that leaves me in awe of your talent my friend.

      "Come Tomorrow" I feel such sorrow when I dwell or think of tomorrow and what it may bring. Although I dream dreams where she is in it, I reach out and touch a mist of her reflection left me empty and sad and lonely I hunger for her like a wolf dying by his mate. I felt the impact Pearl, for my tomorrows are few and I draw closer to the close. You penned I felt with a heavy heart.

      " From a Leaf's Perspective" There is nothing more beautiful than a tree, for life and death is merely a root away and blown seed falling into rich soil to shoot to it's previous glory, while the bones of man blow away like dust in the wind." I support GOING GREEN and the growth of our planet. Man vs nature will end when her wrath fights back as she is doing now.. Wonderful words my friend, I love this work.

      "Children of War" Oh how my heart cries for the children of our world. War torn countries, lives lost, children tossed about like rag dolls while bombs explode and tiny tots run amuck and without any luck they are blown away, crippled and injured they still smile. There sad faces showing their sorrow. Oh I cry for the children, let our maker intervene and save what is left before the dark side continues to take all of them from us. Peace NOT WAR, Imagine a WORLD let's pray for all the children of our world.....

      Pearl this group of your work is outstanding. I was moved by all and must say I could not choose one that I would call my best choice. Why? because they all have impact and meaning to me and thus I am enthralled by your work as always. I am thankful that a geat poet like your resides at the Hubs and I am humbled in your presence sir by your mind and written word. Thank you for reading my work when you do, I much appreciate your comments to. Keep writing and gifting us with y our very special brilliance. All VOTED UP and shared.

      Hi Martie, thanks for taking the time to read and appreciate this collection of poems and for your positive comment... I'm sure you will like the 2nd album as well... I hope you managed to vote for the piece you liked most..

      Yes, I published these pieces as a collection, basically because on this site, many of my individual poetry hubs, have been (for no real reason) idled and as a result do not get the exposure that they deserve! How poetry is valued by non poetry administrators on this site is a concern, especially when those same people can manipulate the search engine value of any poem or poet! HP has lost a lot of excellent poets for that very reason...

      I did mention in the intro why I designed and wrote a collection though Martie... Cheers for your support... I'm glad you have found happy times... you take care... PD

      I only voted for Children of War because our shop has large shelled New Zealand walnuts and I have been advising people to open them safely with a flat head scewdriver and to give the empty shells to a kindergarten. But the other poems remind of days and feelings that are certainly worth cherishing in the subtleties of what was experienced.

      Hi shiningirisheyes, thank you so much for that... I'm pleased that you enjoyed this album... you will enjoy the theme of album two then, as this album was to test the waters so to speak. 'Awkward Shyness' is a true story that fitted the words, rather than the other way round... 'You Reap What You Sow' has been perfectly summarized by you as it does relate to the wonderment of love...

      I hope you managed to Vote these into the Poll above... Really appreciate your positive comments and support... cheers for taking the time... take care... PD

      Fantastic plethora of creativity. There is a creative piece of art for everyone to enjoy. "Awkward Shyness" is so true and reminiscent of the bittersweet pangs of our youth. "You Reap What You Sow" is so prophetic of truly appreciating what love can bring.

      So many wonderful poetry selections and I thank you.
