Passwords


“In the arts, as in life, everything is possible provided it is based on love.” 
              -Marc Chagall

I wish I had the password

to access pure love and peace.

The one to help us to release

tensions and frustrations,

biases, and even hate.

It would prohibit foul verbalization

vulgarization, and dehumanization

just because we have free speech.

You may characterize my wish

as utopian and or even naive.

My wish is deeply embedded in my soul

and I just want to think

It may come true someday.

Tersa Rima Sonnet Challlenge


Keep faith

by Melba Christie

 

Beyond the horizon and to the right

you’ll find my rainbow adorning the sky

hoping your wishes keep it in sight

 

 they say you may find a pot of gold

 keep the faith because you never know

 and if you dare, just stretch and be bold

 

 This world is not meant for those who are shy;

 It is for the courageous and strong

 It is for those who always question with, why?

 

 Keep track of rainbows and stars if you can

 God made them for us to help keep our faith

 the faith deep in your soul no one can ban

 

 Delight in all seasons and all nature brings

 You will know He is with you when a Robin sings

A Call for Certainty


“All my life, my heart has yearned for a thing I cannot name.”
“What’s in a name?”
A name possesses a soul of its own
A soul does not leave the body until it garners enough love
For eternity to judge its worth

My heart hankers for peace if that is what it is called
Because sometimes it seems what we have entitled it
does not truly claim or maintain it,
“Peace is not a season but a way of life.”

“All my life, my heart has yearned for a thing I cannot name.”
Am I to blame for such uncertainty?
A longing for something so elusive,
So exclusive
That not even my brain can perceive
Or receive
“What is in a name, I asked my muse.”
“All my life, my heart has longed for a thing I could not name.”

Will my desire be the refrain?
