Linda Ori Poems

If I could put it into words -
All that my heart is feeling,
Would they help to warm your heart
Or would they send you reeling?
...

Do you ever wonder...............
Why lives intersect,
React to one another -
What makes our hearts connect?
...

There are consequences to everything
Intentions have their purpose -
So don't deny
Or justify -
...

In the darkness of your thoughts
Created by circumstances
Both complex and overwhelming,
When no amount of spirits
...

One bright star in the vast unknown
A blazing ember in the night sky shone
Reminding me that I'm not alone...............
One bright star;
...

There was a little fairy
Sat beneath a tree -
Humming to her tiny self
A haunting melody;
...

Sure, you're tough and resilient -
able to keep your feelings
under control,
when everyone around you
...

Football is my favorite game
I love to watch them play -
Those tightly muscled butts and legs
On an awesome autumn day;
...

You alone reveal my soul,
The intimacy of my deepest thoughts
Wrapped around each emotion,
Each beat of my heart;
...

How many moments stand out in your mind
As heart-stopping moments truly defined
By all that you wish for, your hopes and your dreams
Those moments created by magic, it seems
...

You look at me with sad green eyes,
I'm overcome with feeling-
Such deep emotion they disguise,
Yet send my senses reeling; They speak to me of loneliness
...

I'll carry you with me here in my heart
From now 'til forever, we never will part,
Though all that we hoped for is now in the past,
Your memory lingers -the mold has been cast;
...

Alone in the velvet darkness,
a soul dwells
in ignorance
...

Baby, sweet baby, with tears in your eyes
Rest your head gently, there's no need to cry,
Come let me sing you a soft lullaby
The sandman is coming and dreamland is nigh;
...

As I was walking through the wood
One warm and sunny summer day,
I chanced upon a lovely sight
A swirl of butterflies in flight;
...

Is this what life is all about?
All there is to know...
I can't believe I've come this far
And still so far to go;
...

From infinite depths of heaven,
warrior clouds
ignite the universe
to flame.....................
...

I did not bring you roses
When you searched for something rare,
Instead I brought you daisies
And I hoped you wouldn't care;
...

We'll be together one fine day
Though life has turned our hair to gray
And we've missed the tender touch of youth
But not the warm embrace of truth;
...

A human blossom
Blooming with the breath of life -
Totally awesome
...

The Best Poem Of Linda Ori

' How Do I Reach You?

If I could put it into words -
All that my heart is feeling,
Would they help to warm your heart
Or would they send you reeling?

There are so many emotions
So many words to say,
But which ones would you savor
And which ones throw away?

I live in indecision -
Which formula is best?
Overwhelm you with my thoughts
Or give your heart a rest;

It's difficult to hold inside
This flood of raw emotion
That threatens now to drown me
Like a shipwreck on the ocean;

I would die a thousand deaths
To think you never knew
Just how much you mean to me.............
But how do I reach you?

Linda is a very good modern poet. She is very versatile in her skills... Most of her poems are very entertaining and extremely readable... She does write thought provoking ones too, In that sense she has what it takes to arouse the reader’s mind’s eye! ! ! .... And she has what it takes to make the reader move with her lines.. Some of her poems seem to ooze out emotions…. As a person she is a priceless friend too… I mean some of her poems do reflect what a lovely lady she is….. If any want some fun, I should recommend start reading her by turning to her poem“ 'WOMAN OF THE NIGHT “ That’s great fun, hilarious..! ! ! ! Best wishes and with lots of love Shan

The other comments you shall read here about this poetess will express the personal feelings they felt at reading her poetry. Many of them will have a difficult time explaining why her poetry has such an effect on them. After all, it appears as if hers is similar to the poetry of so many others who may give them the same effect occasionally. The most telling of these comments will be those saying that they shall return here to read again. Whatever the comments, they are just a simple manifestation of what they are really experiencing. That , for which , they have no words. For what they are doing is reading 'real' poetry. Not what someone calls poetry, not what someone says reads like poetry, not what an academic advocates as qualified to be called poetry. No, this is what a greater power than resides on earth declared to be poetry long before it had the name. Her written words are not modern poetry or Whitman poetry, Poe poetry, Byron poetry, Islamic poetry, or poetry by any description of man. Least of all, this one. So I shall not even try. The true seeds of poetry are written in our minds, not in our hearts. Before poetry enters our heart, it must be heard by our minds. Our minds hear poetry through the sound of the words, not their meanings. The great poets can speak this language so that it reaches our hearts with meaning after passing through our minds with the sound of their words. By such means is poetry defined and by such a great poetess as this is God able to reach the heart as well as the mind of man. Linda Ori , is all that a poetess or any true artist can ever be.

By way of her poetry Linda somehow brings out (variously) the atmosphere, the emotions, the colours, the scene/s. Always with impact. The impact is often one of senerity. I feel peaceful yet pensive after reading one of Linda's poems. And one is never enough. Linda, my hat off to you. t x
