The Gift of Chaos

With all that is currently happening in the U.S. and the world, I feel the need to reshare this poem, Visiting With Chaos.There is an opportunity in the messiness of life. Will we choose to be loving learners or give up to fear?

Years ago I chose the RULE

24 Hours minimum, before

doing, speaking, before action

24 Hours to steep in the experience

all emotional flavors infused, allowed to cool

to sip consideration of your viewpoint

before I express my own.

My reflection on the gift of time to change our perspective. I also have a poem related to this theme up on Via Brevis today.  via EDITOR’S CHOICE: Weather Forecast

My light is shining

Today my poem Incomplete was published by Vita Brevis, The New Poetry Magazine.  Vita Brevis aims to publish work that shows a keen awareness of not only art’s beauty and longevity but life’s toils and finiteness. I am honored to have my words join those of many wonderful poets on this site.

May the flame of poetry continue to burn brightly as we share each other’s words.

Make it a beautiful day as only you know how,

Ali

Life is short …

My poem, Visiting With Chaoshas been published today on Vita Brevis. This literary magazine is dedicated to revive and nourish the rich existential literature that forms when art and the human endeavor collide. Thank you Vita Brevis for supporting the community of writers.  Through poetry we can calm our minds, share the human experience and laugh together to keep our sanity. Life is short, poetry helps make the most of it.

An additional thank you to Carl who first published this poem on  Versewrights .

Make it a beautiful day.
