a proud facial expression

Again to my great graduates who defied all expectations and taught me more than I taught them!

Personal

It is personal
When they lend you their
Heart, personally,
To plant alien seeds;
And as you proceed,
They spur sperms and sprout
To become fertile
Grounds of pregnancy.

It is intimate
When , once created,
An embryo of
Whole selves are inside
The cyclone of fate
And elixir of
Life stirs into minds.
By choice, hearts diverge.

It is passionate
When our divergent
Roads crisscross gently
Not to become one
In all, but all in
One: a rainbow of
Memories, present
And tomorrows too!

It is an act of
Trust when, knowingly,
They impart to me
The art of learned growth,
Deliberation,
Of wanting to give,
Seeding into me;
A heart convicted

To blossom of Truth,
Yet
Bloom Realities!

K. Q. the poems you've submitted since you've returned from your holiday have been among your very best.

As a teacher, I really can relate on a personal level, to your message here. To give of yourself and see others grow from that act is very rewarding. Thanks for sharing this one.

Les

Thanks Les, although there are a few old ones I still like best! Perhaps these hold some fresh air from the sea?! But this one came out from my heart!

KQ - Thank you for your comments on my poem. I had posted a comment to this early today, but I guess it was swallowed by the ethernet! I, too, appreciate it most from the 'teacher's perspective'. I homeschool my 16 year-old. And I room-mothered my older one. It is nice to read aabout in your words. A poem with a heart...Very nice.

K. Q.,
&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbspThe poem embodies the organic aspects of its articulation,as well through its theme. I espeially enjoyed your sexual allegory, the spine of the theme's movement.

It sounds as if your teaching is laced with a good measure of compassion and humility.

Peter

P. S. I suspect you won't object to a little proofing, since we know that that kind of thing just aims at cleaning us something much more important, the poem itself. Should "heart" be "hearts" in the first stanza? Changed my mind. I suspect you can proof perfectly well yourself, whenever you choose.--don't really need my help. Love.

KQ,
Brilliant, you convey your feelings well, I particularly like this:

It is an act of
Trust when, knowingly,
They impart to me
The art of learned growth,
Deliberation,
Of wanting to give,
Seeding into me;
A heart convicted

To blossom of Truth,
Yet
Bloom Realities!

Christy,
Thanks for reading and commenting. You do homeschool? a believer in deschooling or what? Well, I think that is brave and admire you for it!

Peter,
Thanks a lot, I appreciate your opinion. And of course you are welcome to suggest change in any of my poems as you the reader are the co-owner of a poem since you give it life by reading. Nevertheless, I guess heart or hearts goes with whether you believe it is all for one or one for all and they are not the same.

Gwyn,
Thanks a million. When you enjoy a poem of mine I enjoy knowing it!!Thanks for reading!!

a simple 'bump' would have sufficed !

But however it got to the top, a very nice facial expression K.Q.

I can taste the fluttering
it brushes against my heart
dusting away signals of colors
no sign can issue my stop!

can you feel the endlessness?

I vision some imagery in here. Surely a storyteller with a heart. Who is sharing what he has learned and has taught. Nice work. He/she sorry. grinning smiley Enjoyed the read thanks.

Nolon, I love it when people still can't make out what I am. It is so refreshing! Man/Woman? It doesn't matter.

"To blossom of Truth,

Bloom Realities!"

Interesting, I wonder what the alternative would be. Beauty left bleeding, scabs perhaps.

I love your wrting style K.Q, if you have time, perhaps you could start a thread that would allow myself and others to explore your poetry and writing techniques further.

Enjoyed.

Interesting idea Coin.
KQ is a natural poet; how do you explain writing from the heart and soul?

"I like to read poems in all possible ways I can think of . That's all. I enjoyed experimenting your exploration!"

It occured to me that there is method in K.Q's writing, I'm not disputing her natural ability.

They all come from the heart and soul, whether or not other people think it is from your heart and soul is the real problem. Natural poets as you put it, are merely natural because they appeal to someone who would refer to them as being natural. Not at all taking anything from K.Q., I just dispute the terminology.

Okay, I see what you mean, Coin.

I agree, for the most, that we all write from the heart and soul. By natural, Satirical, I just meant KQ doesn't force words or messages, she opens up and lets it out.

But, I don't want to speak for KQ, so I'll hush now.

None is better than none else, they are all plays on other words anyway right?

Gwydion, I understand, but that is what I meant. When I say that a natural poet is that because someone merely felt strogly enough to say it, I mean that it is obviously because they read it the way that was best for their personal mindset. The words are not forced if you do not read them that way. It is all in perception is all I meant.

KQ--I tried to pick out my favorite line and just couldn't do it---you have expressed your passion in being a teacher in the true sense of the word--I wish you had been my teacher--

Dear all, thanks you for the kind words. This is utterly nourishing !

Les, thanks for all your efforts in combating spams!

Coin and Ell, I am extremely honored by your words! I am in love with teaching but never formally think of it as a task; it is rather a passion. Being so it pours forth. However, it is a great idea to start a thread and co-learn together how freeing expression works. I guess, Coin, that is what poetry and technique is to me: a process of freeing!

Gwyn, you can speak for me anyday! Being a dear friend I trust you with my whole being. Thanks!

John, I too agree how words can be a secondary source of meaning and may betray sometimes. When carried by soul and spirit and passion, however, they have little choice but to be what they are impregnated with. Thanks for reading!
