Nothing lasts forever, and more people are waking up to that truth, in light of the recent election result in the U.S. Will the flame of freedom be snuffed out in America? Only if bigotry is allowed to trump love. A hateful government with menacing powers at its disposal can do no more than frighten, if it is opposed by those many Americans who still believe in the power of love. Five poems.

Poetic Memory is nine poems, ~1,000 words, that deal with memory as the fruit of a life still being lived. Thankfully, we don't have perfect memories - important meanings would be lost in the myriad mundane details of the past. Old memories come to us as poetic memory, where sights can become smells, and events are transformed into stories with crystal-clear meanings. Mature themes.

Life is full of magic, if only we look first to what is within. We live in a world that tells us meaning, reality and happiness can be found if we look outside ourselves; this is not so, and these poems trace a journey from the freedom of youth, through the prisons of attempted conformity, back to the freedom of adult anarchy. There is no escaping alienation in this world - so be free of spirit.

There would be no need for hope, were it not for the tragic dimensions of life; and so we hope for many things - and love is at the crux of all we desire. No life can be lived without tragedy; yet, sadly, hope can be lost. To hold onto hope it is necessary to recall what it is we hope for most in this world and beyond - a connection with others through love. Enjoy these four poems, and ponder.

We are all creatures of feeling within ourselves; music is the universal language of emotion, and so from the serenity of sleep to the cacophony of sounds from around the world, all may be understood as music that fills our beings. These three poems look at the music emanating from within me, the music that surrounds me throughout the day, and the sounds that come from all over. 800 words.

What is it about life that draws us onward through our days? It is seeing through the eyes of others, enriching ourselves with the experiences and dreams that illuminate other lives. Life as it is seen through the eyes of children, or fish, or partying youth, or a great friend, can give us glimpses of what it is to be free-spirited, and reverential of what is given us. No adult-only content.

Hoyt's first full volume of poetry (55 poems) exhibits a broad range of styles-- from sonnets to concrete lyrics. Somewhat romantic, somewhat modernist, somewhat language based, Hoyt's poems are largely unclassifiable; yet every one is ripe with insights into the human condition.

Series: Memorable Verse, Book 27. Price: $1.99 USD. Words: 1,290. Language: English. Published: April 25, 2015. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Contemporary Poetry, Fiction » Poetry » Canadian Poetry
Against the backdrop of a solitary person's life, I use a little number crunching to compose nine poems, each of nine lines. Reading these poems may lead to hope - or to terror, but probably not ennui. The key answer to our dilemma, I think, is practical - but perhaps not possible to engage in these times. Whether beset by problems, or soothed by solutions, strong action is imperative.
