Pamela Davison Poems

1.
As Soon As I Get There

I can see through
The soggy afternoon,
Your words inspired
By ancient pines,
...

2.
Transcend

Open wide, my sisters.
Prepare your hearts
To make welcome the light
That would ask us
...

3.
Beauty Way

I am present in the energy of this moment,
An instrument manifesting sacred duty
Without attachment
For what does not belong to me.
...

4.
As It Should Be

I saw you today,
In the wild brown eyes
Of a doe. She studied me
With an intensity I've never known
...

5.
Ten Thousand And One

I have counted
Vigorous regrets -
Ten thousand and one,
Measured them
...

Pamela Davison Comments

Pamela, I've read a number of your poems after initially feeling thrilled by 'Panoramic' and quite impressed by 'Substantial'. I found beautiful things in 'Communion' as well, and 'Supreme Gift'. And the prayers you've written, like 'Beauty Way', have great dignity and beauty. I also found dignity of expression in the well-titled 'Ironies and Absurdities', in which your sentence structure is so clear and direct, though as I suggested in a note I wrote you, I also see more redeeming features balancing the ridiculous materialism you describe. Who knows why I feel impelled/inspired to read and comment on so many of yours. I find nuggets of gold in your poems. If there's a suggestion I might make (after so much praise) , it is that sometimes your lines tend to feel a little impersonal or abstract to me. There's no way to force it, but I want to see/feel a little more intimacy in your work at times. My very best wishes for your continued unfolding in the Beauty Way, as a poet and a human being.
