Let pathos reign

your heartbeat
with seven billion
souls at the drop
of a poem.
Let pathos
reign when
all else fails.

  1. No beautiful photo of OR for us today, Tyler? Hope all is well with you. Best wishes, WG

    • Thank you, my friend! Right after your comment, I posted the photo/poem “Spellbound”. Sometimes I don’t have any new photos or am not satisfied with the way they turned out. For what it’s worth, I try to strike a balance between pure poetry posts and the combo of photos & words. I feel that most readers enjoy my combo posts, which makes sense b/c humans are highly visual creatures. But, words do need to speak for themselves without the use of props. It leaves more to the imagination. Your kindness and support are always appreciated, Elizabeth 🙂

      • You are right, of course, about words painting their own pictures in the imagination. I am simply a greedy Gus for the beauty of Oregon, which I miss so much. I love your photos which share it so vividly.

        So many bloggers seem to rely on the photos to tell the story. I enjoy your posts because they are so beautifully expressed and communicate worthwhile ideas. They always invite one to ponder. Hope you are enjoying the day. It is finally raining here now, for the first time in weeks 😉 So appreciated by the dry Earth, and by those of us glad for a damp day.


  2. This tapped into deep parts of my heart – truly beautiful!

    • Thank you, my friend! I’m so glad my poem synchronized with your heartbeat. I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Keep up the excellent poetry on your blog….always very inspiring to read 🙂

    hope you were only talking about ‘in poems’…and not all the time! 🙂 very cool!

    • Thank you! Yes, just in poems (not at the drop of a hat!) That would be a tad much and on the OCD wagon if we took this poem at more than face value 🙂

    I’d love it even more if I know what pathos was.

    • Haha! As much as I value simplicity in my writing, there are words I just love to use whenever I can. One of those words is pathos. It’s actually Greek for “suffering” or “experience” and represents an appeal to the audience’s emotions. For me, poetry is infused with pathos b/c it’s from the heart. Hopefully this helps. Thanks for asking, my friend!
      Tyler 🙂
