Linda Ori Poems

' 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?

Forest Sprite

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

! Do You Ever Wonder..................

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

' Understand

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

Football! ! !

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

Linda Ori Comments

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

I found sadness of her poems like pastel drawings.

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.
