the honey of life

the honey of life

A Poem by Lydia
"

i took this photo from the deck of a cruise ship last week. nothing brings me more inspiration that this.

"





ripples of inspiration ride the waves

the sun sings anthems of rhyme

till twinkling stars line up in a parade of wordplay


the visceral mob comes at me

waiting for me to tame it

i welcome the onslaught

 

a translucent hum of poetic thoughts

serenades my spirit

sweetening it with the honey of life

you, sunsets, ocean cruise, and the poetry just spontaneously flows like the stars swirl the night sky... Lydi you are one of the few poets I read that swim in words and welcome the challenge of taming them into poems, or perhaps better put "magic"... and it is always such "nice" magic too...

I do believe being on a cruise ship delights your muse in a most prolific way, Lydi. I've never been on one, but I have been on a ship before with a merchant marine...but that's another story! Lol, it really is a thrill to read you, and I hope there will be many more years ahead for us both - right here!

I hope you had a wonderful Hanukkah. My best to you in the coming year, my friend!

doesn't get any more perfect Lydia...great read and i hear an anthem to the muse in it ... "..the visceral mob.." and ".. i welcome the onslaught" is genius says i ..it takes strong negatives and turns it to welcoming adoring fans in my mind .. tho perhaps not your intent ;} i am jealous of your cruising ...but can almost say i have been on one now ..one without a hitch ..and so blessed :) so glad you shared this one .. are you back now? from your cruise?

dear Lydi... your poetry is inspired by your view of the early morning mist on waves of contentment as the cruise rocks you in a cradle of celestial peace. The islands with palm trees and cool breezes fill your heart with blessings.
Another world where I long to be. truly, Pat

Truly one of the most creative & original poems inspired by golden rays lighting up the horizon (could be dawn or dusk). I love your melodic word sounds, as well as the middle stanza that's heartfelt & visceral for us writers! *smile* Here's wishing you & your loved ones a blessed & joyous Christmas (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Well done, Lydi. Sunsets are always conducive to poetry. That time of day when all calms down and the thoughts rise to the surface. Good write.
