Consonance & Disonance by Scott Naismith
Welcome to this mystical oasis, a waterfall for divine thought and memories honoring God and Life through various writings, Haiku and short stories coming from my heart and illustrated with art.
A Poem written on Mother’s Day 2001 by Christopher Eugene Phillips
Strong by emotion
the source of a crying creation
nurture and wean, nurture and wean
the sail on the ships
of the sometimes blue risky oceans
a watchful eye
over the whole experiment
she knows the unconditional
a structure with enough give
to weather the storms
and a little alcove to boot
the glue of the family
losing herself in the support
of the children
a generous dollop of compassion
makes a good soul sandwich
especially when the meat
is dry and withered
it goes good
with a side of her powerful affection – C E P
Thank you, Son, for this superb poem and may ‘your good health be your wealth.’
with love, mom, your scribe for love
In like manner, a quote from Rainer Maria Rilke in “Letters to a Young Poet” written in a 1903 letter to his friend Franz Kappus.
“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart
and try to love the questions themselves,
like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue.
Do not seek the answers, which cannot be given you
because you would not be able to live them.
And the point is, to live everything.”
