Poems by Deborah Russell


A Pennyworth

Quicken my heart
truth
to bestow
maketh not
my lips
quiver but
smooth the
edges
of sorrow.

 



A Pennyworth Prayer

Praise be and blessings
for life's little lessons

Praise be and blessings
for each and every nook,
and corner of the chamber
in the heart of life

Praise be to the fallen
and to those who can't be found

Praise to the flowers, to
the saffron and the shaft

Praise be to the God of mercy
for our soul to quicken
hearts to acceptance and
forgiveness

Prayer for the distraught and confused, may you have greater freedom in your souls, and new vision in your mirrors of life.

 



The Pennyworth Poet

Pennyworth Poet
odes
to birth
love
life
and
death.
Degas
impressionistic
dabs
of unfinished
thoughts
and
sentences
glimpses
of
love
enough to
light a
flickering
candle
wax
smile.
Soliloquies
I
scribe
of
nature
speaking
in
cosmic
voice
transcending
meditation
to
soothe
the
ear
of
the soul,
I am
The Pennyworth Poet.




The Poetess


The poetess

converses

with the wind

and talks

to the moon

and rides

high on a sea

of thought

and

a glimmer

of an idea

Then

takes pen

to paper

and

plants

each seeded

word

and speaks

forever

to the

world.




When Poetess Weeps

When poetess weeps
it is deep
often years
without a tear
she cries for
the earth
and sobs for the children
and bleeds from
her heart
for love.
