Welcome To Modern Poetry With Silvia Hartmann

Artist Silvia HartmannMy name is Silvia Hartmann and I am  a poet.

I am also an energist and to me, this explains poetry and answers the question "What is poetry good for?" at last.

Writing a poem is a way to use language differently. For once, we are not just trasmitting dry facts or top level tittle tattle - instead, we have an opportunity to communicate in a far more organic and complex way.

Poems and poetry are a short hand for transmitting unique experiences from one person to another, to allow someone else to enter into the poet's worlds and walk a few steps in that other's proverbial moccassins. 

I write a poem every day, although I do not have time to post it here every day. It's good exercise in conscious to energy mind communication. 

Already I grow weary of the talk, for it goes on forever, but it is not until we stop and sigh, breathe deeply just for once, and let the evening's hush awaken other senses that we begin to now uncurl, unfold, and rise into the night - a dragon gold and true, our eyes as diamonds, seeing more, our hearts of lightning, sparking transformation ...

Night Voice

Night Voice

In 2007, an aspect of mine wrote a special HypnoDreams album - one that was not for other people, or for sale, but only for me. Based on the "voices in the night," it was absolutely designed to be a gift for a future self who might need to hear these words, to calm her and inspire her, help her through the night. And it has, on many, many occasions and remains one of my favourite "poem collections" to date ... Full texts of all the "poems" and the song on this poetry album.

yet her footsteps resonate
and all who sense the ripples

stop

Forbidden Words In Poetry

Forbidden Words In Poetry

Way back in the day, 1996, when the Internet was young, I joined a poetry forum. With my welcome message from the moderator, I was directed to a list of words which one must never use in a poem.

Oh really ... ;->

Forbidden words in poetry ...?

Sanctuary Poems

Sanctuary Poems

Whilst transferring an old static website, this collection of poetry exercises called Sanctuary Poems dated March 2000 was found in a sub folder.

These poetry exercises use imagery of environments (Project Sanctuary habitats) to create a metasong flow. But apart from that, they're cool and even the html is a poetic blast from the past.

Enjoy The Sanctuary Poems.

Here's The Oldest Castle ... a story poem, and a metaphor poem for so many things ...

Funeral Poem

A visitor asked if I had any poems suitable for a funeral for a friend. I have three funeral poems here; God's Speed is a funeral poem for a friend; Pyramid for a lover, and Upward for the funeral of a person who had no friends and may not have been a good person in this life. Hope it helps some.

To me, poems are a way to express oneself without having to look over the shoulder at ol' Granma grammar, without some teacher standing by with a rod to hit your knuckles if you says somming what they dunnot likes.

Freedom with words.

Love Poem For My Wife: To My Lady

Love Poem For My Wife: To My Lady

A gentleman wrote: "I would love to write a love poem for my wife - it is our anniversary - but I'm no good with words ... Can you recommend a poem for a husband who can't write a love poem?"

So I wrote one specially for all those gentlemen out there who don't have the words, with material assistance from Lord Lucian, and on their behalf. Enjoy!
