Hidden Treasure

Hidden Treasure

A Poem by Anita B Jacques
"

Let it flow

"

Poetry is a fine way,
To express ourselves
Open our heart.  
And let it flow.
 
In our memory
 hidden treasures 
Joy and pain locked inside.  
The tears we shed.

So good to let go,
By sharing our memories. 
From childhood to old age,
Wonderful stories to tell.

Sunny days, pouring rain.

Good times, hard times. 
Successes and heartbreaks.
With Love, dust them off.

Leave them behind.
For remembrance sake.
Don't take them to the grave.
What a waste it would be.

To willingly share our pains and victories with another, via the medium of poetry, benefits the writer two ways: She may just help out a person in a similar situation to find, if not an answer, at least a road to clarity, and, she has made of her pen and paper, or her keyboard, a surrogate best friend, one with whom she can weep, laugh, exult or just complain when the fleshy one is absent. There is no better way to heal a wound than to open it and let the infection out. Poetry can be that scalpel. Good job, sweetie!

(P.S.: I just did something really dumb! After reading your reply to my review, I went back to the review to see what I had written. I saw it printed on your page TWICE, so I decided I'd erase one of them. I'd failed to notice that one was "My Review" and the other was the "Featured Review"...SO THEY BOTH WENT AWAY!! I recreated it as best I could. It's not exact, but, well...Another lesson in Acting Rashly, I guess!)

Don't know how I missed this lovely write but am so glad I found it today. This is a wonderful truth for most poets, we write from our hearts the joy and the pain and in doing so, we touch other hearts. For me, writing is good therapy so much of my inspiration has thus far been from heartaches and grief. Very nicely penned Annie, my friend. It says a so much about the heart of a poet.

Sharing poetry of our memories is the sharing of a part of us, who we are, our hearts and soul. Memories are a product of our emotions that's very important to us. If they weren't important, they wouldn't be our memories. We would forget them. Wanting to share is an opening of your heart to others. All poets do that. God gave us all the ability, but some may never use it. Thank you for sharing your heart Annie.
Love...Liz

Poetry and life defined. We can't take anything to the grave but as a poet to share your gift among other people and writers is a blessing. Some opinions are just that opinions. Some are due one day to be fact. You have created a fact with this poem. Congrats and thanks for blessing me.

"By sharing our memories.
From childhood to old age,
Wonderful stories to tell."
Is this not the universal desire of the writer? So wonderful in its simplicity.

"Leave them behind.
For remembrance sake.
Don't take them to the grave.
What a waste it would be."
Our greatest legacy to loved ones and to mankind "our words". What we did and what we said are the footprints of our lives.

Thanks for sharing! Donni

I love the concept of this poem:

"Open our heart.
And let it flow."

"Leave them behind.
For remembrance sake.
Don't take them to the grave.
What a waste it would be."

What a great way to "let go." I think it's something we all should consider...

Enjoyed this...
