Micro-Poetry Acceptance


To take what is and use it to one’s ability is Micro-Poetry Acceptance.

Throughout life’s experiences, one should manifest into a meditative acceptance. Micro-Poetry Acceptance is identity, awareness, inquiry of the right small doses of life, of love. Within social circles, family, relationships, events that can echo of survival. Points of identification found in learning, contemplation, in the voices of remembering, forgiving, and growth.

Micro-Poetry Acceptance

Love isn’t perfect because love means acceptance.

You can’t love without accepting

everything in whole. Of self. Of others.

Micropoetry is a genre of poetic verse which is characterized by its extreme brevity. In other words, a micro-poem is a short poem. (MicroPoetry)

Micro-poetry is a collective term for a variety of different forms of short poetry. As a poetic artform, it doesn’t really have any rules. Although it does consists of certain forms of short poetry with fixed rules such as haikutankasenryu and gogyohka. There are also no real character length limitations either. The limits are set by the medium with which they are being shared, and also that invisible line where micro-poetry becomes a regular length poem.


Definition of Acceptance:

Acceptance in human psychology is a person’s assent to the reality of a situation, recognizing a process or condition (often a negative or uncomfortable situation) without attempting to change it or protest it. The concept is close in meaning to acquiescence, derived from the Latin acquiēscere (to find rest in).[1] (Wikipedia)

Free Verse Poem Love Glistens


Free Verse Poem Love Glistens; I am a free spirit and you, a thorned rose.


In, “Free Verse Poem Love Glistens;” I look at a new rosebud as if it is love, fresh and untainted by life, moving in and out of the sun, the rain, the elements of nature. But love isn’t perfect.

And I’ve never known a man who has lived alone for twenty-seven years. Until you. It seems relationships for you are like the swan that flies south for warmer weather. They come and go. Nothing permanent.

It seems, in your loneliness, I found you. Others couldn’t strip empty from your heart. I don’t know what I had then or even now. Maybe I’m the soil where your roots needed grounding. And your thorns I refuse to pluck. I saw the softness of your petals in those blue eyes. Love glistens in your tears. Calm comes from rain and I, like the breeze tease at your existence.

Granted, you and I, are unique. I, a free spirit. You, the thorned rose. I don’t ask of your, fallen petals. I only want to pick them up when they fall. Place them in an open book to dry.

Image of Free Verse Poem A Walk Through Empty Hearts

Free Verse Poem: A Walk Through Empty Hearts


“A Walk Through Empty Hearts” is a free verse poem that interprets the pings of letting go of love.

In this free verse poem. The inevitable is there. A woman sees changes in her love with a longtime romance. The time has come in letting go. She has found that the relationship is going nowhere. He says he doesn’t want anything more.

Her goodbye may seem cruel But, growth and change come with goodbyes. I am in hope of you enjoying this free verse poem and digital art piece.


Free Verse Poem, “A Walk Through Empty Hearts.” 

Look, it is Fall. Fall colors.
It is the beginning to an end.
You don’t want this.
You love me; you say you do,
but you say no to a future.
I know of relationship therapists, of resolve.
I know of talk therapy.
Blood and love.
Cold rejection.
“Distance falls.” my friend reminds me.
It’s the breaking time.
Wrenching thunder within me.
I always have to rest away from the weariness of letting go.
The Fall whispers of cold.
The colorful leafy wasteland of it all.
Things of bittersweet heartache.

The taproots are deep.
I knew a guy called Robert once.
He made music mixes.
I wonder where he’s at these days.
The ladies love his choices of music.
The ladies he kisses.
Heaven has opened.
How to let go.
Butterflies and mist move softly across the earth crust.
Darkness is gone.
Boulders are trapped there.
The same way that thoughts are trapped in emotions buried.
Instinct tells me that I can’t touch your soul and that I can’t touch the core of the earth.
Branches have coldness trapped inside.
Ours is a post-separation brook.
I am here lonely and sad.
Common sensed and intellectual.
In a faraway place, others are moving.
They rise, waking their children, smiling.
I am in tune to this happiness and sipping my coffee to a songbird on my window seal.

It’s morning, the songbird sings of change.
Of my youth, I would beg for love.
Now I am saying, “Don’t forget me.”

Step Beyond Image

Free Verse Step Beyond


Free Verse Step Beyond

One’s true-self protects,/strength is in reaching deep.” I indulge in perception in this “Free Verse Step Beyond.” There are days when one feels lost from themselves.  A world revolves around one’s being. I see this in others, it’s like their body stands in front you, embracing a smile that is forced. Pretending, everything is fine with them. But, you look into their eyes, and the eyes speak truths.





I saw this in my sweetheart today, I am observant of body language. It speaks loudly to me. My sweetheart’s body was rigid and tense. Under a false smile, he displays everything is fine when it is not. But, I do not ask if he is ok. Then, I would put him in the position of feeling threatened.

One’s true-self protects, endures, and heals. I can see this in him. Thus, I impel a kiss upon lips as if all is well, transformation takes place of his limbs. Muscles become relaxed for there is no judgment from me, but to offer all my love.


Free Verse Step Beyond

We are of two people.

I pendulate between radiating beauty and interchanging places; thrashing
about with sleeplessness.

I craved the logic in you, desperate to absorb
the bloom of mind, body symbolism under your shirt,
teal whirlpool of silken thread, I long to scrawl like a spider.

Don’t lose baring; this is what makes you step beyond
the pools of tomorrow in an ocean of currents.

A brutal learning in letting go of yesterday;
letting you wretched on steps, your body whole,
you don’t need my limbs; you are moistening lids marking forgiveness of self.

Patterns and Expectations Image

Patterns and Expectations – Free Verse


Patterns and Expectations – Free Verse

“If acceptance isn’t a mindset,/then communication comes to a halt,” I ponder in “Patterns and Expectations” a philosophy of mind over matter, control is the soul who believes in oneself. All the while, waiting for another to think of likemindedness. But it’s not possible to force another to be like them. Each of us an individual, a spectacular entity of life. Each a blossom of seeds spilling color upon humanity. A woman accepts that have non-expectations of where love will go, finds love at her feet.





Patterns and Expectations – Free Verse Poetry

Lacking knowledge, I assume without knowing.
Who you’re internal, to look up into the gray sky,
answers move swiftly as the clouds do,
shaken with thunder, they fall silent.

Likes tears on cheekbones, striking the surface of my mind.
Separate from the source, scattered of questions.

Is it for the scarcity of time,
the expectations patterned through once day or night.

Breaths left upon swirls of the mist of change.
Of cloud shifting of formation collecting thoughts.

That I edge myself closer, again, to your heart? Of no expectations.
No patterns but acceptance are lacking knowledge; I accept the answers.
I accept you.

Image of Poetry - She's Holding His Heart

Poetry: She’s Holding His Heart

This poetry is formed from a longer cycle following the imagined voice of those who try to understand love and the delicacies of a relationship.

Image of Poetry - She's Holding His Heart

Marilyn Monroe couldn’t say it any better. We, as individuals are so unique in our skin. Each bringing our imperfections and perfections to a relationship. Granted with those intricacies, there will be the difference of opinions between the man and the woman. In her quote below, Marilyn displays a stance of total self-confidence. This can build a wall. Because of this, each partner in the relationship should be confident to be able to respond in a loving, and understanding way. Long-term relationships are formed of this form of communication.

 “I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.”
― Marilyn Monroe

Love is such a challenging emotion. I’ve learned communication is the key to the longevity of my relationship. To have the ability to agree or disagree without becoming uncivil. To be able to resolve problems together quietly. In this free verse poetry and digital art piece written about resolution and forgiving.

Free Verse Poetry: She’s Holding His Heart

My heartbeats fade; hiding behind a glass wall.
I said I wouldn’t do it again: not one tear.
I am cold. I am warm.
My blurry reflection eyes, of me
Like sprinkling raindrops, the profile of the moon,
breaking through gray.
I turn this direction—warmth dissipates; I’m hurting.
I turn that way—I’m inside your arms once again,
depending on when you have time to spare.
I walk through the parking lot, of dimly lit high street lamps.

Headlights flash, I jump aside.
Windows roll down, voices yell into the night.
Pounding feet behind me, warm arms reach.
A masculine man stands before me;
The baby blue eyes look through to mine. I’m a window.
He lost his heart inside warmth. In the glass wall
a woman’s trying to forgive words;
No, she’s holding his heart.
