As my dear friend Emily Dickinson ( 😉 )once said…
Much Madness is divinest Sense…
Much Sense – the starkest Madness…
Don’t get it twisted!
Enjoy another poem by Ray Maxwell for BlaPoWriMo!
Life is so much more like
Parks and Recreation than
So don’t get it twisted
when you pull the curtain back.
Poetry is just streaming words –
nothing high brow about it –
painting is lines and shapes
splashed on canvas with a brush –
and dancing is shifting weight
from one foot to the other
in motion across a wooden floor.
If I were a strong wind I’d wrap
all around you – if a river,
I’d rise up to your knees –
if a song, I’d bounce tenderly
against your eardrums, until I
found my way into your inner heart.
Life. More like Parks and Recreation,
less like Madame Secretary,
nothing like The Good Wife.
Life. Don’t get it twisted.
