Overview

These poems came out of the love Dr. Yadusky has for his wife, Margaret, and his children. The will to create and the will to love are one. Poems make love visible, and by doing so they uplift and heal, because in the presence of love everything is healed. Poetry at its essence depicts a spiritual world, because the mind seeks truth, the heart seeks love, and the spirit seeks goodness and God. Poems awaken something in the reader's heart that is beyond knowledge. We can define poetic creation in the same way that we define art itself, namely, spirit expressed into matter. Poets say tangibly what they feel intangibly to give finite form to the infinite. When Dr. Yadusky depicts this creative spirit of love, he shows us the face of God.

How to Unblock and Unlock Using your pen like a brush or a bow (Written in a meter of .-.-.-.-) Iambic Tetrameter 8 syllables in 76 alternately rhyming lines

    All thinking from new points of view
    Can help unlock a writer's block.
    And so can learning something new.
    Just stop your looking at the clock.
      All truth can even be a spark
      Of insight rare that can ignite.
      Truth hits us hard and in the dark.
      Quite unexpected is it's light.
    Just use your pen like painter's paint,
    flow smooth and go just like a bow.
    Let words be music for a Saint.
    Be more than words, that's what to know.
      To just inquire could spark your re,
      And move your mind to heart and soul.
      There are some themes that never tire
      And range the earth from pole to pole.
    We like: a sleuth, whose plot takes twists,
    And boy meets girl, and sailing ships.
    We never tire of moody mists,
    Or love, or new relationships.
      Just seek to learn and find what's new.
      Use internet just like a tool.
      A clue can be there just for you.
      Or find something that makes you drool.
    Use contrast or what's opposite.
    Word play can add a genius touch.
    Take my advice and don't just sit.
    To do nothing won't help you much.
      Combine or invent some new words
      To hit like bullets at a range,
      To shock your brain and cut like swords.
      Or use a word that may seem strange.
    Girlicious words can stipulate,
    And even paint a fresh corsage,
    With it's illusionary sight,
    To show us all a grand mirage.
      I hear there's beer in atmosphere.
      Sometimes it works to be unclear.
      Let's take it to the stratosphere.
      Does all this sound to you just queer?
    Resolve conflict, where it resides.
    Relate to God, and all that's good.
    Use nostalgia, or show both sides,
    The way things work, or how they should.
      Most anything that's here will do,
      To bring out life from out your life.
      Many things are of help to you.
      And tell us all about your wife.
    A contrast may bring out a joke.
    Or how about a change of style.
    Try simple, sparse, or just evoke.
    Your words and thoughts can all beguile.
      Find someone's shoes and walk a mile,
      Or take another gender's view.
      You'll make the reader think awhile.
      Your les may bring a clue to you.
    Be hot or sweet or taste like wine.
    Just amplify, don't try to judge,
    Or justify, and you'll do fine.
    From essence you should never budge.
      Procrastinate and you'll be late.
      Get down to work and spend the time.
      Don't wait, prolong, or tempt your fate.
      Why not just write it all in rhyme?
    Bring something out that's been submerged
    Just imagine or symbolize.
    At least you can say you've been urged.
    A last resort is fantasize.
      Be noble, frank or cavalier.
      Decide ahead what you will share.
      Or be so sad you bring a tear.
      There's nothing that you have to fear.
    Invent, redo, use sequel two,
    And even talk about what flew.
    Bring out real you, and take my cue.
    I hope I've been a help to you.

Poets Are This When Love Reaches Critical Mass (Written in a meter of .-.-.-.-) Iambic Tetrameter 8 syllables in 24 rhyming lines

    You may call all poets "wordsmiths,"
    Who hammer out rhymes with some myths.
    Or you might say, "word carpenters,"
    Because construction that infers.
      Or you might say, "word engineer,"
      For word designs that they hold dear.
      But poet's words are so much more.
      Love's spirit is found at their core.
    Poems wake something in our hearts
    That is beyond all knowledge parts.
    Poets reveal inner beauty,
    And that is the poem's duty.
      The poet's words are finite forms
      To which the in finite conforms.
      Intangible gets tangible
      To be very manageable.
    Poems make the invisible
    To be made for us visible.
    Poets keep showing the ideal,
    With ideas and how they feel.
      Poets with words picture for us,
      What their inner eye sees as plus.
      When love reaches critical mass,
      The world will shift and anger pass.

A Poet's Poem about Poetry It's More than Words or Rhyme (Written in a meter of -.-.-.-.-.-.) Trochee Hexameter 12 syllables 20 rhyming lines or (Written in a meter of -...-...-...) Primus Paeon Trimeter

    Words have special beauty that is hard to define.
    Words of prose can start to change to poetic line.
    Verse is pregnant, poignant, and is full of essence,
    With it's fullness of all inner experience.
      It is vivid, forceful, intense, sometimes free verse.
      Poets condense language of words all in their course.
      They use words of deep thought, and suggestive power.
      Words like rhythm, cadence, meter all just flower,
    Metaphor from a bard always draws attention,
    So does beauty, structure, rhyme, and all perfection.
    We can find it in poems and even without.
    Poetry in motion will leave you in no doubt.
      What's poetic can give everyone a big lift.
      Perception expressed by rhyme is a special gift.
      Poetry is spirit expressed into a rhyme,
      Which moves intangible into tangible time.
    The will to create and the will to love is one.
    Poems put in finite into finite when done.
    Creation is spirit expressed into matter.
    As you can see, poems are not idle patter.

A Secret Muse What Do They Use? (Written in a meter of .-.-.-.- ) Iambic Tetrameter 8 syllables in 16 alternately rhyming lines

    A secret muse the poets use.
    Find yours today; chase blues away.
    It can't confuse and may amuse.
      It brings in play what you should say.
      It lights your re and inspires.
      It makes you write what you think right.
      You will aspire to desires.
      From sheer delight you'll write and write.
    Whatever views you have of muse,
    Your need for one, or just begun,
    This best of clues you now may use,
    Muse brings on fun and prizes won.
      Remembered bliss and my young miss
      Are muse of poetry to me.
      A scoundrel's hiss or stolen kiss,
      These all can be what muses see.

One Painter to Another Reversal of Fortunes (Written in a meter of .-.-.-.-) Iambic Tetrameter 8 syllables in 32 rhyming lines

    I think deep thoughts both night and day,
    Like poets do, who have their say.
    I work all day, and get no pay,
    And what I do just seems like play.
      I express thoughts by use of paint.
      Call it a masterpiece, I'll faint.
      But I keep working to improve.
      And one day all my works will move.
    My work is not measured by clock.
    Sometimes I get an artist's block.
    But deep thoughts always get me through.
    And that is my advice to you.
      If I were you I'd take a course.
      Your paintings can't get any worse.
      If practice helps, you'll need a year
      to get like me, or more, I fear.
    You're better than I was at first,
    When I thought all my works were cursed.
    Sit down and have some tea with me.
    Let's talk, and see what we can see.
      I think I could have been quite wrong.
      This one right here moves me to song.
      And that one there shows quite a air.
      Your works are really more than fair.
    I even think that one I see
    Reminds me of a Da Vinci.
    That looks Degas, Van Gogh, Monet,
    These all are worth some good money.
      Some seem to match what's in the Louvre.
      You've really nothing more to prove.
      Your on your way up to the moon.
      I hope to join you very soon.

Symbolize Other Names (Written in a meter of .-.-.-.-) Iambic Tetrameter 8 syllables in 32 rhyming lines

    Poets just love to symbolize.
    "Blue liquid pools" they call her eyes.
    "Low ceilings" are their names for skies.
    And "fruit-filled boats" they call our pies.
      So I'll just match them at their game.
      I'll give each thing a different name.
      My daughter is my dear "princess."
      She looks like one I must confess.
    Her necklace I'll call her "dog tag."
    Her broach I'll call her "shiny flag."
    Why symbolize what's got a name?
    Are poet's really who's to blame?
      Why do criminals on the run
      Go "on the lam" with "rod" for "gun"?
      And why do teenagers approve
      That some music is "in the groove"?
    We all must want to symbolize.
    It must cut all things down to size.
    Or is it more like a pet name?
    A moniker that we can claim.
      I need your help; straighten me out.
      Do you know what this is about?
      Do you feel we're just name crazy?
      If not precise, it gets hazy.
    A thousand years from now, or so,
    When we talk will we really know,
    Just what we are talking about?
    I hope so, or I won't go out.
      I think we can say this today,
      That precision is here to stay.
      So let's hang loose and knuckle down,
      And buckle up or we will frown.

You Know What Art To Work Upon Switch Your Life To "On" (Written in a meter of .-.-.-.-) Iambic Tetrameter 8 syllables in 40 rhyming lines

    What art should I try now to do,
    Perhaps not one, but maybe two?
    I want to make a masterpiece,
    And put it on my mantelpiece.
      Masterpieces are very few,
      But that mere fact should not stop you.
      Whatever you want you can do,
      When inspiration gives a clue.
    Focus first on composition,
    Then move to decomposition.
    'Cause simple means elemental,
    Which builds to be monumental.
      Uncluttered, stark, pure and stunning,
      Puts your work into the running.
      Abstract is art spirit essence,
      Let your art work show its presence.
    Paint on some sheets of clear plastic
    With new paints they call acrylic,
    Or medium of standard fare.
    Both easily can get you there.
      Computer art we now can see,
      As well as art done in 3-D.
      Machines spin paint out as their part;
      You turn it on and call it, "art."
    What do you want your art to say,
    Or do you simply want to play?
    See through a looking glass mirror,
    And show yourself right to your core.
      Or use a magnifying glass,
      And show little things as they pass.
      Or why not use a telescope
      To see your future full of hope.
    A window shows duality
    Of doorway kind of unity,
    Where in and out are connected,
    Switched, or endlessly repeated.
      With patience start to learn techniques,
      And show us God when your art speaks.
      You know what art to work upon.
      Show love, and switch your life to "on."

Movement In Art Noticeable (Written in a meter of .-.-.-.-) Iambic Tetrameter 8 syllables in 36 rhyming lines

    When something moves we notice it,
    And art can move us quite a bit.
    It makes our eyes move and focus
    On where composition leads us.
      As we follow art's perspective,
      And look for what is attractive,
      Or interesting, or what's good.
      We'd wander longer if we could.
    Art shows the real and the ideal,
    That moves us in the way we feel.
    We can sense topic and technique,
    And color-balance that's unique.
      We're moved by life's big adventure.
      We're enlightened by each venture.
      We don't tire of art's stories,
      Which distract us from our worries.
    Artists paint people when they smile.
    Good feelings make our lives worthwhile.
    If lost, these painting we would miss,
    Our world would be less warm from this.
      But what we want we may not get.
      With love in your life, you won't fret.
      If you feel good enough to smile,
      But feel you can't 'cause that's your style.
    Then try to be polite; don't rile.
    And try to go that extra mile.
    You'll move someone in your own way,
    Perhaps an enemy today.
      Enemies disparage and mock,
      Show you're built from some stronger stock.
      For what you are shows in your art,
      You'll be remembered for that part.
    Stop running and don't move away.
    Let your art have something to say.
    Move us with truth; be understood.
    You'll move the world and do some good.

New Collaboration What Fulfills Needs? (Written in a meter of .-.-.-.-) Iambic Tetrameter 8 syllables in 28 rhyming lines

    Charisma unites two soul mates
    In every show left to fates.
    Painters want us to see in art
    Some more of this charisma part.
      Collaboration now's the game.
      Helpers and helped can be the same.
      Each team tries a new word to name.
      When there's a team, no one's to blame.
    Romantic comedy then smiles
    At "rom-com" used by cinephiles.
    We shape buildings and they shape us.
    Change over time is serious.
      Messages are in medium,
      And in the paintings made from them.
      Paintings sometimes don't say too much,
      Just technique, or mood, or some such.
    Is art decoration or new?
    Does art's mirror reflect some you?
    I think what's beginning to show
    Is that what's art we just don't know.
      Do we show or change history?
      Do we solve or make mystery?
      Many newspapers have closed down.
      TV commercials make us frown.
    Movie media still succeeds,
    But does it really fulfill needs?
    To get close to God people crave,
    In part because our art can't save.

Artists With No Paint We all Are Artists (Written in a meter of .-.-.-.-) Iambic Tetrameter 8 syllables in 28 rhyming lines

    Each one of us is an artist.
    And for our work to be greatest,
    Each one of us needs to suffer,
    And show ourselves as a lover.
      When you fall in love you learn more,
      Quite a lot than you knew before.
      Just when you think you know for sure,
      You fall in love and that's your cure.
    When acts come truly from your heart,
    Autobiography is art.
    Your art expresses what you love.
    Love comes to you from God above.
      Then God is seen in all you show.
      We only truly do just know
      What we love and we treasure so.
      Each act you do is chisel blow,
    Or slash of brush as you suffer.
    Your masterpiece you can infer,
    Is found in your own life story,
    And how you've grown to this glory.
      Little by little love's presence
      Helped you find what you seek, essence.
      Then your art had something to say,
      It told of you, and if you pray.
    For what you are in your work shows.
    Virtue in you the viewer knows.
    We all are artists with no paint,
    Because we want to show a Saint.


          Describing Artist's Work
    Spend Your Time With Intelligence
          (Written in a meter of ..-..-..-..-)
            Anapest Tetrameter
          12 syllables in 56 rhyming lines

    If emotional then art is called visceral.
    If spiritual then it's called ethereal.
    If intellectual it's called visionary.
    Describers use terms that are reactionary.
      Instead of saying, "Love is in this artist's work,"
      Critics say, "It has heart," as if that has more perk.
      Terms, "mental" or "emotional," we must avoid,
      Plus, "spiritual," because critics call them void.
    Different terms are used to make talk indirect,
    These terms at first may seem to you to be correct.
    Global warming is something that is heating up,
    Coming with a lot of hot air at a gallop.
      A heart is drawn as picture, letters are not used,
      Indirect language I think is being abused.
      Indirect dogs may bark, but direct moon will shine.
      Being direct will make some indirect dogs whine.
    Not many years ago, a spade was called a spade.
    Critics talk like they don't want that now, I'm afraid.
    They avoid direct criticism description,
    Direct analysis is not their intention.
      That is like psychiatrists avoiding telling
      Patients directly, "you're selfish and denying."
      It takes patients longer to find that on their own.
      We sometimes need to hear direct talk from those grown.
    Indirect reviews of art will always cause strife,
    Like: "Life imitates art, and art imitates life!"
    Or say, "That is really something!" That talk can't lift.
    The giver has to be sensed somehow in the gift.
      Both critic and artist must say just what they mean.
      Use direct talk of fears, masks, roles, worries and scene.
      Vague words only add mystique, which adds to a sale,
      But artists need real feedback to grow and not fail.
    Meaning may have to be explained to the viewer,
    Grade artists for clarity plus the reviewer.
    All artists have relationships with their own past.
    They include that in their art; it makes their past last.
      Whenever artists reveal themselves in their art,
      Symbolic personal information takes part.
      Artists stand exposed through all of their memories.
      They can't help but have that come into reveries.
    Artists put a bit of themselves in each painting.
    Their unique style, vision, and message is hanging.
    Creation itself is always so personal,
    The artist is found in each artist's arsenal.
      Directly show symptoms of artist's real torments,
      Diagnose origins of their breathless moments.
      Show how choice means a sense of values and what's right.
      Zeal without knowledge is like re without light.
    Artistic creation can't be so different
    From science discovery by experiment.
    Both surprise and touch the viewer with newfound truth.
    And profound things are to be found even in youth.
      Through what you love, divine mystery you'll perceive.
      And in life's goodness you will then start to believe.
      We never mind spending time with intelligence,
      But we do mind hazy, unclear and negligence.
