MY POETRY STYLES
(My honest disclaimer) |
I love writing
Poems or prose
But I must confess
My verses do not
Conform to norm:
Not Classic at all!
Of irregular length
With some, little or no rhyme
In open form
Or mixed, why not?
They call it “The new free verse”
Never in meter
... It matters not!
With themes too many:
About fleeting or eternal love
Inspiring, Motivational, Philosophical
Poetical versions of Essays
Abstract, Haikus, in Spanish
That's Volume II
Of Book of Diverse Writings
CHOOSING THE ROAD
We can follow the beaten path
For an easy walk on smooth terrain,
Or take the road less explored
Full of roses embraced with thorns
Pesky pebbles and pointed stones
Making our journey on this earth
Difficult for us to traverse.
The choice should be the byway
That hardly a soul has surveyed
Full of holes, pebbles and boulders
Plus bushes with spiny clusters...
--But… what's there to be gained…?
The pride of not having derailed
From life's troublesome journeys.
(From the novel SUBLIME ADOPTION
~ A Tale of Love and Mendacity)
If you ever lied
About family or friends
If you told that lie time and again
But you never told the truth
To the people you had lied to…
It is time to make amends.
If you've hurt
Family or friends
And you saw the agony in them
How their lives forever changed
But you chose to ignore their pain…
It is time to make amends.
Whether you tend to
Shower your graces on others
Or to pray to God for redemption
Because “you are good…” Just do the math!
Don't ignore your painful wrath
Wake up my friend… and make amends!
Uncover the lies, relieve the hurt
Be brave before it's too late
Tell the truth… let it be!
And you'll be
BIRDYJOSH AND BIRDYLU ~ A Paper Birds' Story
An endearing kids-to-adult fantasy tale about two enlivened birds depicted in realistic settings--by the light of the silvery moon. The last two pages--emphasizing love and caring for animals of all kinds--were dedicated to Ollie the Beagle and Brandy the Pomeranian, now in their special Heaven.
BIRDYJOSH AND BIRDYLU
A Paper Birds' Story
(The book condensed In a poem)
(c) Mirta Oliva
I folded the paper time and again
And so you were born, my Origami paper bird
BIRDYLU was your name - and you flew and you played
Your eyes always calling for a handsome paper mate
So I went right along and folded paper again
And soon he was born, BIRDYJOSH was his name
The pair was in love, I noticed one day
Thus I prepared a wedding for the sweet paper birds
My prayers were answered, you flew in the room
staring through the window at the green leaves and blooms
I only knew then they‘d be leaving my den
But I’d always be watching both birdies and hatchlings.
To get seeds and other goodies they'd get out of the roost
safeguarding their 'lil bodies from the light of the high moon
The birds built their nests... the chicks came and went
And Boxer my cat would not go near them
For it happened one day, BIRDYLU was surprised
a feathered-chick had arrived... It really blew her away!
With only one worm, what was she to do?
When two little beaks were begging for food!
It was then that I told her, you must feed both birds
The one with the feathers and the one of papier
So BIRDYLU fed both chicks and soon they would play
Minding not a bit of what they were made
And when the time was near for the feathered little chick
To join her own breed, I saw more than one tear...
All birds shared the forest very close to my backyard
So they would see each other by the silver moon at night
One day I arranged
a big party in the skies
What a sight, what a night,
I could not believe my eyes!
With the colors of the rainbow more chicks were born
They all lived in harmony, they all shared the fun
And BIRDYJOSH and BIRDYLU, dressed in red, green and blue
remained always together, forever true . .
