Jewell McChesney
Location: New Mexico ~ USA
Gender: Female
Born: Dec. 6
Interests: Photography, music,
Member: Premier Author
Joined: October 2004

Her muse is constantly challenging her to thrive, dig deeper for better verbiage and
find the hidden songs lying deep in her own soul~
That which thrives on the notion that you, the reader, will also hear her music
and remember the song long after she is gone.

Her focus changes as fast as her wondering mind, yet her heart is always the same.
Her longings will manifest in romantic writes and her desire to know God intimately will shine through the lines of her spiritual works.

She hopes you are inspired, intrigued and even nudged to find deeper love after reading her verbal, heart cries.

Love is not only blind. Sometimes it's deaf and dumb.

Jewell McChesney: Your poetic words slipped into a silky little number and brushed by me like feathers floating in the wind. Just as the breeze dwindled, one landed and remained like an arrow in my soul. ~ Jewell McChesney

    hager: You may tiptoe here and there
    or slice an apple with your pair
    of eyes that is or shall I say miss,
    forgive this, it's just a prelude of
    an archers quivering quill

Give me three words to use in a poem or a title.
I'll take you up on it.

Jewell McChesney: I prefer to be a dreamer among the humblest, with visions to be realized, than lord among those without dreams and desires.

Jewell McChesney: Sometimes I say to a poem,
"I don't have the strength
To wring out another drop
Of the sun."

And the poem will often
By climbing onto a barroom table:
Then lifts its skirt, winks,
Causing the whole sky to
Fall. ~Haziz

    mickbey: Hello, and I popped in to tell you how much I loved the poetry of your profile, a really beautiful way to describe things, and yourself, good luck in everything.

Jewell McChesney: You will hear thunder and remember me,
And think: she wanted storms. The rim
Of the sky will be the colour of hard crimson,
And your heart, as it was then, will be on fire.
Anna Akhmatova

    Tonulak: Curious, that you are quoting Akhmatova...You might have read my four-poem cycle on her in these pages. I'm so pleased that I might have in some small way stimulated intrest in one of my favorite Russian poets. I loved the one you chose for this page:) Best--Ted

Jewell McChesney: Hi it's me, VisionaryPoet777 with a new name.
Not a huge change but thought I'd change it up as to not be confused with Sharon any more.
May 1, 2013 at 3:19AM
    Jean Lutz: Just another way to describe YOU, my long time friend!
    May 15, 2013 at 12:03PM

Jewell McChesney: Poetry comes from the heart. I do not care for the academic assessment of poetry. Academics can put forth their hypothesis but poetry is like dancing. It springs from deep in the soul. It is an uncontrolled energy which needs to be expressed. The explosion of the inner feeling of the writer's emotions. The lava of the soul.

Jewell McChesney: I want to see the thirst inside syllables
I want to touch the fire in the sound.
I want to feel the darkness in the cry
I want words as rough as virgin rocks.
Pablo Neruda

    SheWolfNLust: I want to feel a love as it surrounds
    I want to touch what a heart offers
    I want words with reach to a poets soul
    I want to fit in that perfect fit.
    January 2, 2013 at 12:32PM
    SheWolfNLust: a most stunning quote, I love Neruda as well
    January 2, 2013 at 12:33PM
    SheWolfNLust: I truly enjoy reading much of your poetry and find it absolutely stunning,rich with metaphors and visual imaginary, I am sad though as it wouldn't let me respond or comment, but just the same I wanted to let you know how much I enjoy reading you xoxo
    January 2, 2013 at 3:11PM

Jewell McChesney: I enjoy it when others have a gift of gab and can put it poetically.
It's like being invited to a waltz for the eyes or fine wine tasting for the soul.

Except when you run a feisty heist
on a weird, beige, foreign neighbor.

Jewell McChesney: Happy Autumn!!

I THINK that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the sweet earth's flowing breast;
A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.
Joyce Kilmer

    Sarkems: Now can anyone remember the name of the song by Juliana Hatfield that uses the first four lines of that poem?
    September 22, 2012 at 11:53AM
    adewpearl: My boyfriend in high school, who eventually became my husband, used to make fun of me for loving this poem. He thought it was way too sappy, excuse the pun. And I still love it to this day :-) Emsey, I looked up the answer to your question, but I won't post it since I cheated to get it. LOL
    September 22, 2012 at 12:18PM
    Jewell McChesney: I just saw this question posed. I have no clue!
    October 3, 2012 at 7:15PM

Jewell McChesney: Keep silence
don't rush to finish your poem
the finisher of the poem
the creator of the word
will begin to arrive..!
