2018 Seattle Dreams

Consonance & Disonance by Scott Naismith

INTRODUCTION

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

Origin

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.”
