Mother Nature

You have the moon on your cheek,

the sky is your heavenly blue eyes,

the trees are your arms reaching up into infinity to caress your world above.

The seas are your music, gently playing within the crowded arms of your life.

The sun shares with you your radiant beauty.

The creatures within are your guests, you are the host, sheltering them from mans evil ways.

You invite in only the gentlist of humans, a soul with pure peace and meekness with no evil intended.

The darkness that surrounds you at night is your cape that you pull to hide from it.

But you still keep watch.

And sometimes, within the misty night, I can still see your grey eyes watching me.

Perseverance and Passion are a must when writing

"A word is dead when it is said, some say. I say it just begins to live that day." -Emily Dickinson.

There are so many ways in which our true inner self is explainable, but mostly, it is described easiest on a sheet of paper or a computer screen. Poets have existed in antiquity in nearly all languages.

It is one of the oldest forms of writing: expressing yourself.

Poetry is one of the best ways to say one thing ten thousand times' and every time it will take on a whole new meaning.

It has produced work that varies greatly in different cultures and time periods. And poets are as diverse as the exquisite literature they have produced.

French poet Arthur Rimbaud once said: "A poet makes himself a visionary through a long, boundless and systemized disorganization of the senses."

Poets are visionaries. Poetry is a form of love. It can be a form of suffering and madness. We exhaust ourselves in all aspects to attain the unknown in our writing.

And poets are rich in soul with an inner creative ingenuity.

We can write poetry in a literal sense, which is actually coming from an experience or event in our lives. Or we can write metaphorically, which can take on many meanings and forms.

In other words, the sky is the limit when you are a writer.

We have to be engineered with a deep strength and forward with a passion to succeed on all levels. We cannot fear to take our writing to the next level. A different step.

We walk forward in the literary world, one step at a time, one light flicker at each hope of advance or recognition.

"It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are." -E. E. Cummins.

Poetry can enrich lives or tear them down. It can draw people together or destroy a bond. All in all, writing in general takes a passion and every written word does mean something to the author.

"A great man is always willing to be little." -Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Taking that famous comment into perspective, I must conclude that the smallest of poems in their simplest forms have had a greater impact in the literary world than the Hollywood blockbusters that started out as novels.

Poetry is not just living, it is a way of life. From the deepest innards of the human spirit to the highest peaks of the mighty mountains.

"Beware how you take away hope from another human being." -Oliver Wendell Holmes.

A writer passionate about what they are doing perseveres until the end. Even if they never get published. Even if they die with wads of dusty manuscripts atop their old desks. We carry on. We live with a hope inside that writing will always be a part of our lives.

Or else, we would rather die than put down the pen.

Poetry is a Destructive Force

Poetry is a destructive force

Poetry can be the power of an animal, a wild animal.

Perhaps a bear, ripping, slashing and tearing into raw flesh.

Poetry can be the force of a thunder storm,

echoing throughout the whole universe.

Attacking trees and clashing like drums through the skies.

Maybe poetry is a man, desperate and willing to be tried as the best.

Eager to take over, making every living creature see what he can and will do.

Poetry is an animal.

Poetry is a thunder storm.

Poetry is a desperate man.

But most of all, poetry is life.

      I would hope so, from what I have seen on hubpages, the writers really do care about their work and are passionate about what they do. We have to be, don't we? It is part of our life and soul! LOL!

      I agree with you, but I agree more with Billybuc: Every writer can benefit from this hub. Great job. And I want to thank you for your help the other day also. You are a blessing to me, but I will never be a good writer, can't even spell half the time and spell check doesn't override my foolishness in the English Language. Love you!

      What makes a writer good is if they are blessing people and making an impact through what they wrote. You can do the automatic spell check as you write and it will help you a ton with errors. I use it. And you are a blessing to me as well! God uses you to help keep the fire in me to do his work!! Love you too!!!

      hahaha April, you are too nice to me: Spellcheck is no good to this German" Agatha Christie": Here- hear is what I ALWAYS get messed up. I know what I am talking about, but people, who read my blog might not. Another one is than and then- perfectly correct words. But which will I use when? Or defiantly?!?! Don't even know if that is the word I am talking about. For a long time I thought spellcheck means peruse instead of pursue. I am leaning, but my brain is too dense. I read over my own mistakes happily 20 times and see nothing wrong, "preceive" ( hahaha) myself awesome smart (not really). I am "tiered" of it. You see what I mean. And these are the mistakes I know i am making- God only knows all the rest.
