Progress and Prosperity

I stretched out my hand to poetry

this early morning
and I felt the distance grow between words and
understanding.
Were those miles there before I had begun?
Like glass shattering, the shards scattering
across the kitchen floor like a people
fleeing, retreating
from a more perfect union – but they say
Lincoln’s a poet and poetry mends
hearts, ways, hopes, families, neighborhoods and a nation –
That would be progress!
Or prosperity by any other name.

Technology, commerce, innovation –

cannot tow a star-faring ship of state up a creek.

  1. One thing is for sure, poetry, like music, can definitely unite people…even an entire nation. That’s powerful!

  2. “I felt the distance grow between words and understanding.” This line is incredible. I’ve felt this way about many different things at various times. You definitely have a way with words, Stan. To be able to express yourself like this is quite a talent.

  3. Poetry is my key in to other people’s minds and lives, from past and present. I think it is one of the best forms of expressionism ever.

  4. I am in fact delighted to read this weblog posts which includes plenty of valuable
    data, thanks for providing these information.
