Worlds Apart, Where Do I Start…..

The Wind carries our wishes and prayers to the stars
Water carries our emotions to distant shores so far
Fire shows our passions of love how to burn and melt together as one
Earth nurtures that love, bringing us together under the moon and sun
This is most beautiful and taking to heart these words of nature and us makes me feel that the element can be deadly but also a safe refuge for us

Poem 145:

i liked it

the Poets Heart


Shadow adrift


Shadows now adrift
lie upon a distant hill
with no more flowers to bestow,
the sun bows low

the day’s labor done
a journey cast in twilight view,
to home, each shall turn

but before the night
shares her madness true
each days treasure
clothed in golden hue
shall say with tender kiss,
I love you, but adieu

I found this old poem in my archive, and remembered
the poem was ‘chopped up’ to become 102 & a tiny bit of 103,
posted just for fun…

Poem 154:

True as true can never be

the Poets Heart

The Wolf Within


If you should find a wolf inside
howling with madness in the wind
remember that his twin,
also resides within

if one should growl and bare his teeth
find the brother, that you must
warm and friendly,
in his heart love grows deep
feed the one with a smile,
but let the other sleep

Two wolves battle within each boy
one small and filled with lies,
the other born of a gentle soul
the difference in who prevails
rests not in size or bite
but the one you feed, will win  the fight.

Inspired by the Cherokee legend of the two wolves
which you can read about here

Life is Pain

Alvin's Web Home

By Alvin Benatovich – April 23, 2013

Between the final breath
And moment of birth
We know too well
Pain on earth

From serious injury
There comes real pain
Enough to convince you
You’re going insane

But the most insidious
Agony yet met
Is knowing
An unspoken regret

Live each day
As if you’re last
Speak your mind
You can’t relive the past
