Bob Blackwell Poems

Storm blown ripples
line my weathered brow,
face a map of life’s journey,
of striving, disappointments

As our sun sets,
our moon,
a citrus segment,
halfway to whole,

This life,
this energy,
this consciousness,
we sense in

Just a moment.
Yes, a moment in time,
A moment in your day,
A moment in your life.

Sun rises on our anxious world,
Streams of light pass through trees,
to uncover a partial waiting scene.
Robin the day’s first sound, sings,

I look up into blue, blue heaven,
watching a cloud move slowly
drifting, floating, as it passes aimlessly
through the unique experience of

they came
ten assassins,
by boat

The page is blank, pen is poised.
Before time, before things happen,
there was nothing, save for a void,
a nothingness, a emptiness, no life

What good has the world done today,
what deeds that make it now a better place?
Very little do I feel?
George on savior’s path to save the world.

visit Africa,
to spend time
to notice

As I reflect on what has gone before,
I consider, hopes and dreams
both past and present, some dreams
fulfilled, others broken, elapsed,


Controlled by ego, driven by want,
dogged by desire, blinded by guile,
fail to see most of life’s attractions,
Unseen natures, beauty, charm, style,

Our walk to discovery
was blessed, with a
silence wrapped in
music, the songs,

Before time,
before birth of
clocks, watches,
other ways to

Butterflies, so quietly do you fly,
you have no song,
your wings do not creak or rasp,
you do not make a noise,

I hear the birds sing,
I feel the gentle wind
blow through trees
whose branches creek,

Like a fruit ripening,
a nut within its shell,
A cocoon that holds a butterfly,
for a chest, a box, a

We must grow with silence,
Through the winter of our
Ignorance as we wait the
Spring of change, to grow

Imagine peace
for one whole day
throughout the world.

Are about yesterday,
that time gone by,
memories of lovers,
broken hearts, those

Bob Blackwell Biography

I have always had an urge to write but it was only recently I convinced myself that I could. The poems on this site are my first attempts. I prefer to write in prose to rhyme. I intend to continue as it has given me more pleasure than anything else I have experienced. I strongly believe that we are all citizens of this world and we all deserve a fair chance at its spoils. If we take time to enjoy each moment as it comes we will all notice that we live in a wonderful world. I am interested in both Western and Eastern Philosophy, I am in love with nature and spend as much time as possible outdoors, inhaling the natural air and beauty all around.)

The Best Poem Of Bob Blackwell

! ! A Happy Person

Storm blown ripples
line my weathered brow,
face a map of life’s journey,
of striving, disappointments
happiness and joy.

The winds of sorrow,
and displeasure have
left their mark on
my furrowed brow, but
my sparkling crows feet,
eyes, are happy lines.

the sad waters have left
their lines of memory,
there are no tears
for past events to fill up
dry lakes of discontent,
and my now happy smile,
helps smooth the waters of
my still much wrinkled face.

Flowers of hope have opened,
blossoms of bliss bloomed,
and seas of tranquillity and
peace now fill my soul and
my heart is filled with love.

All thoughts of past and future
displaced through practice,
meditation, quietness, being
still; these daily moments of
calm, bring a realisation that
to be happy I must only
live now, in present moment,
for as each moment dies,
for me, a new one is born.


Inspired by a poem sent to me by that lovely poet Mamta Agarwal, thank you Mamtaji

'What wonderful thought-provoking poetry! I thoroughly enjoyed all three poems by a person who can certainly call himself a deep-thinking and empowering poet. Each poem was a heart-felt message so clear and powerful in its simplicity. I felt a familiar desire when reading these poems; a desire to embrace the poet's understanding of achieving peace and harmony. His ability to use poetry so effectively to describe universal motivational principles is commendable.' This was written by the chief editor of Reach publishers. --------------------

Bob Blackwell is a wonderful and inspiring poet. No word is comparable to his talent... his poems reflect the lives in this world, the beauty of nature, and many other topics that may seem ordinary but is compiled greatly and differently. Have a good day! Regards, MIMI

I've read some of your poems and found them all meaningful. Although not strictly 'traditional', they are somewhat 'structured' and contentwise, they are great!
