Happy New Year Update!

 

 

Ariadne’s Notes:

I want to thank all  the World Poetry Participants , publishers, the World Poetry Canada International closed groups Peaceathon, World Poetry Youth Team  and, media partners in print and digital  poetry association partners and  film partners. In 2017, the film partners reached numbered 7 and we are grateful for their wonderful films and the opportunity to promote them. We hope to expand into other media as well.

 

The World Poetry Café radio show has been on the air continually since 1991 and the current team will be adding a couple of guest hosts in January and February. We just received a certificate from the station which I hope to post.

The show how has now reached 101 countries and the book launches have also been very popular with a wait list for a variety of  guests from LA and New York , USA, as well as the world.

The World Poetry Peace Celebration still has poems to be read on the show and certificates to be sent out. 700 peace poems were received and are being read on the show with more coming in.

I want to thank all of your who have sent messages, phoned and contacted me in appreciation of what World Poetry has done for them, opened the doors for contacts and positive exposure and in bringing the poets, musicians, artists, writers together worldwide as a family in support of respect, love and peace.  As one media person put it! “They love your positive and respectful show!’’

 A big thank you to are directors and advisors!

This is a volunteer position for me and I hope to do the best job possible promoting all of you.

In the new year, we hope to expand with a FB Media Page, podcasts and World Poetry Media reporters searching out and reporting on positive news with the goals of respect, unity, love and peace.

In peace, respect and love,

Ariadne

A BLESSED SADNESS (LAST WORD)

Morning clouded with tears Why is sadness oppressing me When happiness has me in her embrace

I know my Father loves me Spirit soars but flesh gravity bound Wrapped in suit of earthiness

Brightness hidden behind the darkness Searching, just searching

My needs are being provided Yet life’s rain is raging Not soft droplets that soothe and caress

But hard pelting blasts that sting the skin Bending the body in negative arch Face toward the ground in surrender

No reason when life’s beauty is present But can’t be felt when the mind is focused on the storm Moving to reach the edge of the chaos

Continuing to move into purpose

Beginning to understand that this moment is necessary The purging and releasing of the pain On what happens when the storm is raging and destroying

Precious things are lost never to be seen again Swept away in the wind…..

But cling to the notion that circumstances are temporary The sky will open up the clearness of blue Populated with softness of white

Happiness is the reward when sadness is endured When it is passed through…..

LUCKY ONE

Oh, I have been the lucky one

To have lived and learned with her,

For always it was she,

The happy, doing one,

The giving, caring soul.

Our life has been,

Since those giddy, happy times,

A story of adventure,

One of give and take

And always and for ‘ever,’

Love for each and other’s sake.

How lucky to have met her,

How marvelous she cared.

Forever will I wonder

Why it was she dared

To have belief in me.

But whatever was the mystery,

Always I will cherish

The faith that both we shared

Through our lifelong span together—

So happy we were paired.

And I am not complaining,

Indeed I’m giving thanks,

For what I’ve gained from what she gave

Would enrich, I think, all of Britain’s banks.

And now when she is fading,

And I reflect upon our past,

I see the longer shadow,

The one that she has cast.
