Cynthia Buhain-baello Poems

The eyes are windows of the heart
Wherein transparency will show
A myriad feelings to impart
From where in sadness, tears do flow.

I met a doctor who had cancer,
He could not believe it was stage four.
At sixty, to me he was younger,
He said he still had a lot to live for.

Each time I hear a baby's laughter
I feel a tickle in my heart.

I have to stop and listen better

Charm is deceptive and may not be sincere,
And beauty of a face may not soon be here.
As fleeting as Time, that faded Yesterday-
Appearances do not last, it can wither Today.

Consummate pain
Like a cruel wrench
Gripped his heart
And crushed, it bled

He died a hero
In a war of vague purpose
We really don't know
What it was for, I suppose.

War undeclared has been there existing,
From a seething anger underneath that grows.
Persistent and nurtured Hate boiling
Reaps the bitter grapes of wrath it sows.

A hidden terrorism,
Without an iota of shame-
This vile plagiarism-
More than stealing a name.

Strange how Life can be more than a story
Plots and characters bring a pleasant thrill
With laughter and tears, some sad and funny
Tragedies and heartaches may bring Pain's chill.

A heart that worships is so emptied
Of fears, of doubts and worrying
It speaks in joy for what God did
In praise and thanks it always sings.

My heart's forever grateful
For in my life I found
A love so true and faithful
Intense and without bounds.

Prejudice cannot be hidden,
Arrogance for the color of skin.
Its ugly head is here again
Racism is lurking within.

Death To Self, Life In The Spirit

We cannot find God in a seminary,
Or imagine we have Him through a degree.

My words they come
As I want them to
They may cut some
Does that bother you?

Unfounded were his concerns
About the need for ample finances
Marriage to the woman for whom he yearns
To share his life's remaining pages.

I can sense the tinge of annoyance
You have for the work of my pen,
I regret to cause a disturbance
In your spirit, it's about God again.

If I were a child again
I'd wake up earlier than I used to
Mom won't be upset and then
The nuns won't get irked

Under the skies of cloudless blue,
The rolling waves rush to the shore.
As if to race winged birds that flew,
And touch bare land just like before.

Behind the yellow flowers
Amongst the grassy blades
A little chick found cover
From humans who invade.

Dusty Heart

The heart is the throne of our being,
From where issues of life come forth.

Cynthia Buhain-baello Biography

Writing poetry is passion, like breathing. If my writing touches but one life and gives it hope, then I have done my purpose in writing. I like poems that rhyme, have rhythm, and meaning, or poems that tell a story. At present, I am into the study of Asian forms of poetry such as the Naani (Indian Telugu form) and the Japanese poetry forms Haiku and Tanka. I like writing the Ninette, Pleiades, Octelle, Kyrielle, and Cinquian, Couplet, and the Septolet. I've loved reading poetry since I was a child and some kids thought I was weird but I enjoyed it. I tried to write poems as early as age 8, some were published by the nuns in our school paper. One thing I found out, I was happy writing poetry - that's the most important thing, I think. My favorite poets are Dorothy Parker, Ogden Nash, Walt Whitman, Christina Rossetti, Edgar Allan Poe, Rudyard Kipling, Roald Dahl, Langston Hughes and Lord Alfred Tennyson. My poems have been featured in inspirational sites, 'A Breath of Inspiration' including works such as 'He is In My Boat' 'Emilie'(Jewel Chest awardee - , 'The Greatest Gift', 'Apolutrosis', 'Reislience' (published in The Anguilian) and 'Robert'. I write personalized poetry, memorial poems, wedding poems, and poems for baby's christening. The poem 'Wolf', 'An Eerie Tale', 'A True Ghost Story', 'Death Comes to Any Age' 'The Pastor's Letter' 'For My Lost Brother' 'Sister Elly Ann' 'Merienda' are all true stories. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - (Note: THERE IS NO POET NAMED CYNTHIA MARIE BUHAIN here on Poemhunter, an impostor used my email address to create this bogus poet account.

The Best Poem Of Cynthia Buhain-baello

The Eyes Are Windows

The eyes are windows of the heart
Wherein transparency will show
A myriad feelings to impart
From where in sadness, tears do flow.

The eyes will say contents of heart
The speech two lovers freely speak,
For Silence eloquently starts
Romance in muted communique.

The eyes are windows of all cares,
Display the sad and wearied soul;
Distant looks and empty stares
Reveal a man who is not whole.

His weak attempts to somehow hide
What's clearly felt and seen-
Will showcase all the stuff inside
Deep secrets of where love had been.

The eyes are windows too of kindness
Touching looks that give embrace,
Blessing one words of forgiveness
Of bitter hurts there is no trace.

The eyes of Love are open windows,
Giving joy, shared happiness;
Reaching forth to let one know
It always seeks to bless with goodness.

Very much cool and calm, religious and spiritual. I enjoy a different delicacy while reading poem of the Hon'ble Poetess. It takes me to a different world where I feel love and peace only. May God give her another diamond jubilee with pure sound health

Couldn't get through on your comments so i am writing here. 'spirits' Very nice piece Cynthia. You may find interesting, a set of three poems that I have written about this subject. The middle one being closer to what you have expressed here. If you are interested, it is called 'The Arrival Of The dark Ones...'. It is true what you say about the demons being subject to Jesus and He has given us power over them also. Solomon also used them for his own benefit without being harmed..another gift from God. Thankyou again for another lovely pen. Regards...Sharon.
