Poetry ~ The Dragon Tree

i created the dragon tree
on a canvas in the garden of Eden
wrapped in vines with leaves shaped
like coins and decorated with
cones, nuts, and seeds
i am the creator of all you see
and all that remains a mystery
i am the artist, the mystic,
creator of the dragon tree

My poem was inspired by today's NaPoWriMo prompt: write a poem based on Bosch's, "The Garden of Earthly Delights" you can find a tour of this amazing work here.

Poetry ~ Creation

we live in a constant state of creation
spiritually, emotionally, physically
forever expanding the universe
with the simple stroke of an
ink pen or paint brush
with the utterance
of every word
the singing 
of a song
the look
in our
eyes

Poetry ~ The Speakers

have you heard them?
the speakers?

there are too many to count
and yet few have been
successful in their quest

they have come to us
in every age
on every continent
walked and spoke
amongst every culture

the echo of their words
are found in great books
ancient writings
sadly, their meaning
distorted
lost

listen
 and you can hear their echo
of compassion
service
cooperation

the speakers
our teachers
imparting wisdom
on how to live together
serve humanity
and the world

is anyone listening?
