Samarian Effect

by Glenn Currier

There are some who sparkle and glitter
so full of thought and creative power
they’re like human transmitters
their minds and eyes seem to flower
and being close to them seems to bring
you zest and vigor, to a peppy place
wanting to search for the next thing,
to discover a quiet thoughtful space
within to water and cultivate
the seed of your own creative force
that something in you that’s great,
so you too will be a fruitful source.


Author's Note: Samara are the small winged fruit of the elm, ash, maple and sycamore trees that can be found on the ground or sidewalk, evidence of the tree’s desire to procreate and create more trees and a beautiful fruitful planet. The Samarian Effect is a term I made up to encourage all of us to radiate creativity, life, grace, and love.

So my favorite thing about the various samaras is their ability to fly! Good poem, Glenn. Thank you!

Glenn, such a beautifully composed ode, ever graceful and mindful of the beauty and truth and artfull power which is inherent in us all, that luminance which needs be mimed from deep within, urged loose by pick or crook or hook and brought to the surface by the soul’s pulleys that whomever is concerned and in need may be ensconced in its ever endearing and captivating light.
