when we forget….

I have been following this poet for years. I feel we are friends although separated by 3000 miles and never met.
I wanted to share his recent poem, which I feel, hits close to the heart of what is wrong with this country today.

Read Between the Minds

a child
dies
in the streets
of san juan
a father
buries
an only son
flag draped
for
corporate profits
a woman’s
condemned
to death
by policies
born
of blind fear
men
are assassinated
by
those
sworn
to protect
and
children
seeking only
a better life
are torn
from freedom’s womb
by
broken promises
so
when
we forget
we
cannot become
great
again
when we abandon
what
made us
great
in the beginning
our
humanity

OBSERVATIONS AND OPINIONS

I fear our species

Is an experiment

To be eliminated

From our precious planet,

Greed and denial

Are the culprits,

Religions encourage

Our destruction,

Our mindset

Offers no help,

Our fate is sealed.

POEMS & FLEETING THOUGHTS

Reality

 

Why do people
Deny the reality
That does not fit
Their beliefs?

POEMS & FLEETING THOUGHTS

I have the dreams

Of a young man,

Denying my age

In my fantasy.

Creativity Without an Outline

I’ve often had discussions whether. This may help some writers on the fence.

A Writer's Path

by Leo Borgelin

Even though people have been creative for most of our existence, yet most creatives don’t have an idea of how the creative process actually works. Pretty ironic for someone who works so much inside the mind. Take this into regards to everyone who calls themselves creative. I think it’s neat and would like the field to grow as well, but with some better accuracy. So how does the creative process work?

You get rid of the outline. Your creativity should not have a structure, but rather an intended result. The whole point of taking the creative route is to bring something new and exciting to the table. So now you’re in open space with no structure and boundary. Like you’re lost in open space. “That’s great”, says the sarcastic person. “That’s great”, says the person who just awakens their imagination.

OBSERVATIONS & OPINIONS

What is happening in Houston few of us will never comprehend unless we experience such a disaster. There are so many stories that need to be told, here are some.

OBSERVATIONS & OPINIONS

HARVEY

I know I promised to begin posts about writing which is the purpose of this blog. But my mind is ready to explode with what is happening to this country. Please forgive me for venting some pressure.

I have read stories of those who died trying to help relatives and friends during Hurricane Harvey. These are the true Americans, not the ones gaining exposure on the news with acts not even close to what this country was meant to represent.

Those who gave their lives for others with no want for publicity are more worthy of our attention and praise then those who represent everything this country is not.
