YOURS TO DISCOVER

Heigh-ho, the derry-o,
we’re just south of Ontario,
and weekend shopping is truly in high gear.

They say the more the merry-o
and car plates from Ontario
have filled the parking lots both far and near.

Spending cheques and loony-o’s
our friends here from Ontario
are filling coffers through sales offered here.

Stores and shops in Buffalo
a Peace Bridge from Ontario
become their destinations, this is clear.

Heigh-ho, the derry-o,
let’s raise a glass, Ontario
to spend your money and your weekend here.

I read your car tag’s motto,
“Yours to Discover – Ontario”
I’m glad you find a shopping gold-mine near.

BIENVENUE!

POETIC ASIDES APRIL P.A.D. – DAY 5: DISCOVERY

FINDING MYSELF

I found my poetry, and as such
I found myself. I discovered I had a heart
that rhymed in compassion and beat to the meter
of a well worded verse. The course of my thoughts
followed in kind, for my mind searched for
the emotions that corresponded to those
tendrils of imagining. I admitted much to myself,
knowing my indiscretions through the words
I used to express them. Peace came in the
release of such things and they would bring me
to each new revelation. It has become my
salvation; made me a better man.
I stand here today, no worse for wear
for there I have revealed the true me.
A self-discovery through poetry.

DISC COVERS

 

Will you please put these CDs away?
Can you place these DVDs to view another day?
These all had cases when I bought them,
so why am I so damned distraught then?
You download now to your mp3 players?
You store your movies in multiple layers?
Then will you put these discs away
to sell at yard sales another day?

FINDING NEMO

 

A little fish in an endless ocean, that is what I have found myself to be. It’s cool that we travel in “schools” of poetic thought, and we ought to swim together to where our destinations are. Some are stronger swimmers, some lag behind. But no one fish can claim a superiority. We all have our day! In the beauty of nature, we are driven to keep living in the presence of Majesty and these gifts lift us all to a greater consciousness. Even in the darkest corners of the earth, we all have great worth. All we have to offer is proffered in love and support. Choose to help each other swim, and you’ll discover a treasures beyond compare. It is there where we find our way each day.

We share this ocean,
this world of wonder awaits.
ours to discover.

POETIC ASIDES APRIL P.A.D. – DAY 5: DISCOVERY

EUREKA!

I have found it!
24K pure and I’m sure
this vein will provide
a wealth of words.
I’ve heard of prospectors
panning for gold. But,
my shiny baubles
are discovered when
I poem for gold. Sifting
through the silt of ideas
to expose each gem,
the value of which
is different to different
people. There is no greed
for indeed my treasure
is to be shared with others.
I write to discover new worlds,
to find emotions and expose
the wealth of well written words.
Some may consider it
“fools gold” but I’m not sold.
To me it is the mother lode!
