'The Balance' ~ partial song lyrics from, 'The Balance'Musical artists: 'The Moody Blues'Album: 'A Question of Balance'; 1970 Earth Day 2020
By the 'The Moody Blues', partial song lyrics:"After he had journeyed,And his feet were sore,And he was tired,He came upon an orange groveAnd he rested.And he lay in the cool,And while he rested,He took to himself an orangeAnd tasted it,And it was good.And he felt the Earth to his spine,And he asked,And he saw the tree above him,And the stars,And the veins in the leaf,And the light,And the balance.And he saw magnificent perfection,Whereon he thought of himself in balance,And he knew he was."...

Of and As One
Feeling your flowered petalsunclasped of a pouted buddazzled of pigmentationswhetted of de’sires sprung. Paired of your ’pistil within my ’stamenwarmed of shades lit on a sunlit wayabundance of a persistent harvestflow of infinite passion be’comed.Imbibed of wild scents of anticipationfertile of ground our seed was plantedinspired of the nature of verdant growthrooted of whispering hope. We ad’joined, as one.©ericwk ~ an EWK Poe'em

I cut my hairWith silver shearsBetween a scissor paired.Hairs in timeHad grown within mePored-out of flesh they extend.Trims of now-barbered fibersFall as if the lightest of feathersLaid to rest quietly in abandoned arrays.My ears have grown in silenceTo hear the whispered rumblingsOf the hairs that since longed to remain.©ericwk ~ an EWK Poe'em

'Tree of Life'
In clouds of this life is where you shall see.Passing by: shape-shifting serenity.Always look up, it's there I'll be.
This Tree of Life becomes your humble home.
Amongst its tall branches; so gnarled and grown.A century has now passed since its seed had sown.
Glide along: belong...
Sit upon your wooden chair.
Enduring weather; of clouds, or days so fair.
Traveling ever so far; to here, from there.
Journeyed beyond this life's mortal coils.
Joining me to you; endearing love thus foils.
Our love firmly rooted in depths of fertile soils.
Botanic desire: inspires...Lovers love lends an unbounded, soulful bond.Known to each other engrained; and eternally on.
Passionate life. Glows deeply within and beyond.

Tree of Life
'Consumed.'•We watchedThe cloudsFormed of cottonCandy caughtIn between ourLips togetherWanting to lickThe sweet Desirous resin.You knowThe pearled Drops betweenThe gnawingWarmth feltTongues outStretched for Anything thatClings to It. OnThat hollowStick. AsIt wasFirst heldTo beThrown awayLike a cloudConsumed.•©ericwk ~ an EWK Poe'em (Image from Pixabay)
Lend an Ear
•Be a good listener.Listen to the depths and potentialsof our own experiences.The World needs more real moments to just listen. To Be.Each person has their story inside. Within.It is not the chatter of common small talk,it is our own life-voice guided within each of us.It speaks within a whisper in the night.Let it be. Soulfully. With love. Indeed.•©ericwk
'The News'I refuse to watch the NewsIn these times, it's like an abuse. So many hours taken like an invisible drug Eyes and ears dosed in fears, endlessly disrupt.Weeks in isolation as time is spent at homeBroadcast of desperations, spread by all unknowns. In prayerful consideration while patiently homebound A sneeze or cough concerns, in widening circles surround.Seek a common sense as the World holds its breathInspire each other with Poetry, expressive beyond distress.©ericwk ~ an EWK Poe'em (Photo from Pixabay)

Desert's endWhen did the light bulb go outIn the evergreen or moonless nightWe were two twin soulsWe knew how to protect our wingsEmbraced before the eternalBeyond all the blowsOf the life that plays on usBefore all this jealousy and doubtsBeyond this painThick void and fear We did hold each other dearBefore we let this world interveneAnd not feel withinBlown back into past timesYour ship has sailedAnd I'm not on itDripping souls blood onto Sand of emptynessFire turned into ice
Fire turned into ice©zsa_zsa_celestial_

Lost At Sea ( A Dutch Sonnet )
Lost at sea with the freshest air, calming.Skin with the slightest tan, exposed to sun. The sounds of ocean noises, alarming. I'll speak of adventures when it's all done. A place in time where nature is calling. Seagulls and urchins flight, rising, falling.With thousands of thoughts of joy I will find. It's too bad that it's all just in my mind….Lost at sea is the place that I should be. An escape to the far reaches of earth.Forever floating and forever free.©robertwjeter

Tomorrow we hug
Oh, to go on a long walk
Or to visit with friends.
Strolling down the boardwalk
A leisure day with no end.
My imagination flares
Confined within these walls.
Frames with family photos
And art adorning the halls.
Are memories more plentiful
With this new confinement?
Thinking of childhood friends
Lost to years of employment.
Or old wounds surfacing
With words spoken rudely
Seeing the memory differently
By not knee jerking crudely.
Life is full of surprises
We really can’t control it.
Are we getting offended
With our security forfeited?
Patience and sharp wits
Are the only way to survive.
Fear and mistrust won’t work
We can’t tune out and hide.
But, the day will come
When the sun is shining.
I’ll give my neighbors a hug
While unafraid and smiling.
I’ll hold a baby in my arms
While comforting with coos.
While the mother relaxes
At ease and amused.
My daughter will go back to school,
Happy to learn with her friends.
My wife will air out our home
Before cocktails can commence.
Patience is needed,
Patience we must soon find.
We want this nightmare to end
But it’ll be here for some time.
All this will pass,
That we must remember.
It will change us to the core
But must never surrender.
