* A Prose Quote from Walt Whitman Appropriate to the Spirit of this Blog (1855 Preface to 'Leaves of Grass')

'Through the divinity of themselves shall the kosmos and the new breed of poets be interpreters of men and women and of all events and things. They shall find their inspiration in real objects to-day, symptoms of the past and future....They shall not deign to defend immortality or God or the perfection of things or liberty or the exquisite beauty and reality of the soul. They shall arise in America and be responded to from the remainder of the earth.'

Quoted from 'The Harvard Classics' edited by Charles W, Eliot copyright of 1938 by P. F. Collier & Son Corporation 'Prefaces and Prologues to Famous Books with Introductions and Notes' New York page 407 to 408.

:) Home As A Silent Cathedral

I oft feign sleep till they are gone
It is not I love them less
Than the silence of gray morning
The chime of clock and peep of watch
Even errant mosquitoe
These are the distractions
Life itself is the distraction.

The paradox is that in the abhorred silence
We can be made whole
If love is present in the walls
Even God can be found beyond them.

:) Poetry Of 12 Words

Cat on lap
Tock of clock
Wife sings
Work ends
Silence
Night.

Daughter
being of the electronic culture
thinks nothing
about “Twitter.”
It is a great
institution for celebrities.
The Pope
can tell the world
he has a cold.

His
Holy Father
however
may need
more than one hundred fifty
characters
to tell the world
he has pneumonia.
