Young writer has great command of English and humour
Thank you for the loving, gentle reminder
new age….that one interests me….are you telling me I can wake up tomorrow and have a new age
These are worthy goals.
My goals at the moment are finding onions for the post roast.
Something I can self realize.
Something I can certainly manifest.
Being the Goddess of Pot Roast is not easy.
It is April for goodness sake.
Taxes are due.
It has been so long since we had bannock and stew..
I am tired from all the payments to make.
The government cheque
does not last often
past the middle of the month
So to ascend
to the mighty heights
of having pot roast
on the seventeenth of the month
Makes me unequivocably the Goddess of Pot Roast.

How do you find the courage
To move beyond the day-to-day
To embrace things that open your heart in a special way.
The blessings and the magic does abound
It comes to me through the light and sound.
of the furnace
as it cuts in to give me warmth
with the hum of the refrigerator
(footsteps of the family climbing up the stairs
bring joys to me of which they are unaware)
adding the sound of the traffic on the street
as the opening of the concert.
The pelting rain now begins
the sound of the wind
in the pine.
The thunder joins in the chorus
inviting his partner
Madam Lightening to be her brazen self.
I enjoy basking
in the sounds
of the moments of a spring day.
Leaving thoughts of the income tax filing,
budgets, time schedules and cares on the shelf.
How do you count your blessings
Do you begin with the fact you are alive
and have the challenges you have created.
Or are you stuck in the sorrow
and loss of things not anticipated
The attitude of gratitude
can move you into action
To count your blessings anyway
Even when not every thing is to your satisfaction.
Start counting up your blessings
In a moment you will see
The cares will not be so heavy weighing you down
You can be happy, joyous and free.

“Practical Wisdom for Loss and Renewal”
“Author Carl DeVilbiss shares deep practical wisdom in this wonderful book. It’s easy-to-access and understand, full of apt anecdotes and personal stories. I like how the book is set up. He addresses a range of topics which anyone experiencing loss of any kind will find helpful and relevant. It unfolds well when read from start to finish, yet each topic stands alone and the reader may easily navigate as s/he wishes. The theme of learning more productive and cooperative ways to traverse the journey of loss and renewal is beautifully expressed in the exploration of each topic. The writing is spare and clear, as one might expect from a Naval Engineer and business consultant. And it’s also hopeful and wise, as one might expect from well, Yoda. Highly recommended.”

It’s what the patriarchs of ever religion want you to be for there followers
It’s the Christians cross, the Buddhist lotus flower
The visionaries tomorrow the kings power
It’s everywhere & in everything
even in nothing, isnt that what meditators Try most to achieve (double entendre)
I worship inspiration it’s the key to infinite possibility.

In this post, the respected critic Simon Banks comments on the work of the obscure poet Simon Banks. In the last post I analysed, or at least commented on, Spirit Mountain and Knight at Arms. Now, proceeding from the earliest poems posted here towards the latest and selecting poems I think I’ve got something to say about, here are some more.

Writing poetry is putting your hand
repeatedly into a furnace;
poems are a plague of roses.
There are three stages in your life with a poem, and these are conception, birth, and abandonment. A poem can’t be conceived without sin nor birthed without pain, because there is no love without sin and pain. Once birthed a poem is exposed on a hillside or left on a doorstep, and you turn your back, hold out your arms, and embrace the next heady sin; every poet is a cruel, unnatural mother who sells herself again and again.
