a poet’s non-novena

there are four patron saints of poetry
and none of them mine
which makes it less religion
and more direct relationship to what’s divine
without intercessors or intermediaries

I get my calling from the mouth of G-d unfiltered
and always, unending worship that can’t be separated easily
into 9s.

***OK–no smoking or drinking here, but I will credit Soraya anyway…


About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

    Haha! Well, I feel awful now with all my vices and sinning… You worked extremely fast here, but it doesn’t take away from the quality of the piece. πŸ™‚

    Happy New Year πŸ™‚

  4. So how did that take you? Please say at least 30 minutes…please??? πŸ™‚

  5. I am not a poet – muses dwell inside my head and whispers words I cannot dispel
    that I must then crayon scribble on the walls and table the best that I am able
    these words are not mine they just wriggle free from every opening as living poetry.

    Have a Happy New Year – may the words keep dancing to the beat of your pen

  6. This is cute and superb.
