The Poetry of Everyday Life

This is a book of encounters.

This is a book of encounters. Part memoir, part essay, and partly a guide to maximizing your capacity for fulfillment and expression, The Poetry of Everyday Life taps into the artistic side of what we often take for granted: the stories we tell, the people we love, the metaphors used by scientists, even our sex lives. A folklorist, writer, and cultural activist, Steve Zeitlin explores how poems serve us in daily life and how they are used in times of personal and national crisis. In the first book to bring together the perspectives of folklore and creative writing, Zeitlin explores meaning and experience, covering topics ranging from poetry in the life cycle to the contemporary uses of ancient myths. "This convergence of poetry and folklore," he suggests, "gives birth to something new: a new way of seeing ourselves, and a new way of being in the world." Written with humor and insight, the book introduces readers to the many eccentric and visionary characters Zeitlin has met in his career as a folklorist. Covering topics from Ping-Pong to cave paintings, from family poetry nights to delectable dishes at his favorite ethnic restaurants, The Poetry of Everyday Life will inspire readers to expand their consciousness of the beauty that resides in everyday things and to use creative expression to engage and animate that beauty toward living a more fulfilling awakened life, full of laughter. To live a creative life is the best way to engage with the beauty of the everyday.

Great poetry calls into question everything. It dares us to break free from the safe strategies of the cautious mind. It opens us to pain and joy and delight. It amazes, startles, pierces, and transforms us. It can lead to communion and grace. Through the voices of ten inspiring poets and his own reflections, the author of Sacred America shows how poetry illuminates the eternal feelings and desires that stir the human heart and soul. These poems explore such universal themes as the awakening of wonder, the longing for love, the wisdom of dreams, and the courage required to live an authentic life. In thoughtful commentary on each work, Housden offers glimpses into his personal spiritual journey and invites readers to contemplate the significance of the poet's message in their own lives. In Ten Poems to Change Your Life, Roger Housden shows how these astonishing poems can inspire you to live what you always knew in your bones but never had the words for.

This is a tale About living and choosing; The tears that come With loving and losing. This is a story About learning as you go, To touch every moment As sincerely as you grow. This is a journey To memories that echo on; To experiencing experiences Before they are gone. This is Poetry for Thought: A Tale of Life. With hopes to warm your heart, And overcome the strife. This is the story That you will make your own. I'd be remiss not to tell you, To reminisce on every seed, you've sown. So, come what may, And let your musings fly; Just remember to share a few Before life passes you by.

It has been said that the eyes are the windows to one's soul. Poetry to me is like a snapshot of ones soul, freezing a moment in time, creating a picture that means different things to different people, evoking unique feelings for the individual reader. Etched into your beings fiber are those moments that shape you. I believe it is good to revisit those that you have stored, the pleasant, the painful and the... Observing where we came from, remembering auspicious beginnings can affect the future giving strength to rise to any challenge that life's crazy ride might throw at you.

In Living Life: Poems and Reflections, poet Robin Hosking considers the idea that all life is precious, regardless of its relative situation to us; because of this, it should never be easy to harm another life. She explains that there is a difference between wishing harm on someone and causing harm to them. Life enables each of us to be distinct and individual, to live our lives in a way that honors our past and paves the way for our future. In Living Life, Robin Hosking reminds us that we are all uniquely valuable and that being robbed of that uniqueness is intolerable. This world presents challenges to us every day; because we all live in this world though, we need to be more amicable to our fellow man. Love must begin with us. Mother Earth I love you and provide for you with all that I have, I nourish you with the food from my ground, I hydrate you with my water, From all of my lovely plants and trees, you are able to breathe. I love it when you come out to visit with me, and admire my many scenes. When you swim in my lakes and streams, I really enjoy your company, but you are mistreating me.

The Poems of Sir Robert Aytoun

THE POET TO HIS HEART AND MISTRESS . My heart exhale in grief , With a
perpetual groanAnd never cease to sigh and sob Till life or love be gone . Thy life
is crost with love , Thy love with loathed breath , Thou hat'st thyself to live , A life ...
