morn’s first kiss – a poem

morn’s first kiss

 

caressed by dawn’s light

petals’ tips awash with dew

pearl white blossoms sing

Heavenly Rain? – a haiku poem

race through time and space

down to Earth as ghostly dust

Future – A Haiku Poem

peaceful the lilies

spread across the fresh-turned earth

genesis is sowed

The Burning At The Lake – A poem

from deep dark, he rose

to spread wings, to fly and scorch

the men of the lake

Our Past Our Future – a Haibun poem

earth blisters from guilt

of mankind’s ignorance,

shade is cast on all

Remember this is a rambler of a thought withoutt editing, so it went where it went. Enjoy or scream.

The environment has been a concern since Adam took his first breath. Actually, it was before then. God did make the Garden of Eden. Note to some, the Garden was in Eden, not named Eden. You wouldn’t believe how that’s not taught in Sunday School. But back to my thoughts. Environmentalists and the casual green supporters consider they do all they can to stop the killing of our planet. But, none of us really do. We all take, but we can never truly give back in equal measure what we take. There is only so much matter on the planet and it’s recycled every day in one form or the other. But each time, a bit more is lost in the processing. There is always processing. You grow the tomato plant organically from the compost and fertilizer you gathered for the purpose. The plants grow and give. You take. You consume. And then you recycle back into the world. No matter how you recycle it, some is lost in the process by your body. I guess maybe we should just stop having babies and eat up all the cows and pigs and chickens as well as all the other types of animals we raise. So long Emu and Ostrich. Yum.

Yes, I’m being weird today, but this is one of my stream of thought posts that I like to do sometimes. I’m not even sure what I started out to write anymore. But I think it was basically that we all need to do more, go above and beyond what we think we need to do in order to keep this planet burning and turning into a ball of nothing but a sky filled with swirling dust that once was meant to feed living, breathing creatures of all kinds. Then next year? Step it up another notch. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle? About Reduce, Reduce, Reuse, Reuse, Recycle?

Our Past Our Future poetry image

Shade here is not one of the traditional dictionary definitions.

The term can be found in Jane Austen‘s novel Mansfield Park (1814). Young Edmund Bertram is displeased with a dinner guest’s disparagement of the uncle who took her in: “With such warm feelings and lively spirits it must be difficult to do justice to her affection for Mrs. Crawford, without throwing a shade on the Admiral.”

In other words, it’s an insult but an insult of another level.

The first major use of “shade” that introduced the slang to the greater public was in Jennie Livingston‘s documentary film, Paris Is Burning (1990), about the mid-1980s drag scene in Manhattan.[2][4] In the documentary, one of the drag queens, Dorian Corey, explains that shade derives from “reading”, the “real art form of insults”. Shade is a developed form of reading: “Shade is, I don’t tell you you’re ugly. But I don’t have to tell you, because you know you’re ugly. And that’s shade.”

I’ve seen the documentary and I can attest to the truth that shade is a whole other level of insult. If done correctly, it’s done with style, grace, and directly to your face.

Pray Good Sense – a Shi Rensa poem

Pray Good Sense

by

Ronovan

~

gulf storms and sea swells

waves ravage innocent sands

calm beauty returns

*

calm beauty returns

at the final gust of breath

the ear knows silence

*

the ear knows silence

and the roaring void is hope

the listless will stir

*

the listless will stir

when empty truths are laid bare

pray good sense prevails

 

Pray Good Sense Shi Rensa poem on image.

They Thirst Alone – a tanka poem

to storm the chaste

we slowly prepare the plots,

for thirsty readers

hearts yearn for their passion tales

then break in hushed loneliness

Throned – a poem

queen’s reign abated

her anguished swarm’s fury hunts

in the bonfire’s flame

*

in the bonfire’s flame

frenzied life is fed and born

a limited drones’ race

*

a limited drones’ race

an heir appears slaying foes

by force of nature

*

by force of nature

with dead foes’ her steps to climb

the new queen is crowned

Awaken – a poem

Click HERE for Anger Them.

Awaken

What hope have we now,

in these crazed deceitful days,

We will face the beast.

 

We will face the beast

that is the bronzed behemoth

bleeding the path red

 

Bleeding the path red

blinding mobs with hate and strife

victory is his.

 

victory is his

unless we learn from past fails,

ours will be added.

Anger Them – a poem

Anger your closed friends

So eyes are opened to see,

speak your heart fully.

 

Speak your heart fully!

Drive truth through their tampered minds,

for the time is near!

 

For the time is near,

and we are to destine the world

with one fingertip.

 

With one fingertip?

Without discernment within?

What hope have we now?

Surge Ahead To Not Remain Behind – a poem

Surge Ahead To Not Remain Behind

The morrow brings life

To the masses of fleet rage,

Keep the surge alive.

 

Keep the surge alive

It never lasts long enough,

to change fate’s robbed course.

 

To change fate’s robbed course,

Ride this rare swell of free minds,

To bring man purpose.

 

To bring man purpose,

Stop these apathetic streams,

choose on the morrow.
