Open Door

Open Door

The door was left open and

A myriad of ideas

Wandered in…

An open mind attracts

New concepts and

Revamps valuable

Artifacts.

Like the

Tide which

Ebbs and

Flows,

Giving and

Taking

Flotsam and

Jetsam.

An open mind,

Like the ocean,

Isn’t stagnant

But in perpetual

Motion.© 2021 Jean Martin

Sit Alone

Niente1's Blog

Sit Alone

There are things you see when you sit alone,
That are personal and only you own.
Like your plans and your schemes,
Your wishes and your dreams.

These visions amplify,
When viewed by your mind’s eye.
You can see them unfold.
Your brain is your creativity stronghold.

Nobody but you knows the extent of these powers,
In order to access them, you need some solitary hours.
We all need to recharge in a private place.
We need to give our intellect some growing space.

We all have that special spot,
That allows our own freedom of thought.
Without these moments of isolation,
We will suffer cognitive stagnation.

Make a private oath,
That you will take exclusive time for personal growth.© 2018 Jean Martin.

Miscues

Miscues

In a world

Where the

Moral compass

Is askew

The young

Often receive

Miscues

Watching

Role models

Engaging

In illegal and

Immoral debacles.

Beware venerable

Generations

Are you building

Weak and

Corrupt

Foundations?

A future, global fiasco

Results from

What you now sow.© 2021 Jean Martin

Omnipotent

Omnipotent

I’ll always

Covet the

Freedom of

The mighty

Universe.

Time, space &

Distance it

Can traverse.

Nothing is

Beyond

Its control,

Wrapped up

In its essence

Is humanity’s

Whole soul.

It contains all,

Not a thing does

It miss.

Omnipotent forever,

Its mysterious

Abyss.© 2021 Jean Martin

Grab The Moon

Grab The Moon

Throw worry

Out the window…

This is the

One life

You get

Don’t spend it

Wrapped up

In fret.

Don’t miss

Any opportunity

Due to worry’s

Ambiguity.

Enjoy each

Day’s

Surprise.

Seize the

Sunrise,

Savour the

Morning &

Afternoon.

Sunset arrives

Soon…

So get

Ready to

Grab the moon!© 2021 Jean Martin

Your Shoulder

Your Shoulder

Without you

Joy subsides,

Within your

Encouragement

My inspiration

Did reside.

New days may

Dawn and

I, too, may

Continue to

Carry on

But, my love,

After all

These years

The echo

Of courage

Disappears.

Together we

Were strong,

Your shoulder

For a lifetime

I leaned on.© 2021 Jean Martin

Dynamite Moments

Dynamite Moments

Life is

Punctuated

With dynamite

Moments,

Those blasts of

Great joys and

Torments.

These intervals

Explode

During the

Humdrum and

Mundane.

After the explosions

Life is never

The same.

Such

Momentary

Spasms

Infuse life

With enthusiasm,

Every life

Changed by

Some Big Bang!© 2021 Jean Martin

Almost

Almost

The thing

About “almost”

Is it’s never

Quite there.

Too many

“Almosts” wind up

Equaling despair.

Almost is a word

Describing a

Life diminished.

Almost isn’t enough.

Almost doesn’t finish.

Almost means undone.

Don’t settle for almost or

That’s what everything

Will become.© 2021 Jean Martin

Scavenger

From this seed, I was born

Touch of salt water &

My soul did alter.

Beaches with rolling waves

Is what my essence craves.

I’m a beachcomber collecting

Driftwood & debris deposited

On the shore by the sea.

Flotsam & jetsam

Treasures to me.

A scavenger I’ll always be.© 2021 Jean Martin
