Life’s Ebb and Flow – a poem

Life’s Ebb and Flow

heat flows through new veins
to the ends of outstretched tips
moon’s hold starts to ebb

moon’s hold starts to ebb
the sun gives its warm embrace
the energy flows

the energy flows
slowly, life ebbs toward death
hope waits in the dark

hope waits in the dark
lifelines retire out of time,
still, latent, until…


What am I? Do you know? Comment below with your guess. The tags won’t help this time.


A Shi Rensa for this week’s Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge of EBB and Flow.

new storms ahead – a poem

new storms ahead

*

~

*

with one cold shudder

life falls into the abyss,

never to return

 

never to return,

the frozen traumatized land,

the dirt now laid bare

 

the dirt now laid bare,

irresponsibility,

its cutting care spent

 

its cutting care spent,

abused lands once more tended,

new red flags ahead

*

~

*



I imagine those reading this one might think of a certain topic but it has many meanings. Did you know that when farmers, gardeners, and anyone who has to dig in a new area should get a person to come out and search for the utilities underground first? The person will place red flags where any existing areas of concern are which will remain areas of concern for the future unless the utility is rerouted, made obsolete, or the person needing to dig, finds another, equally or more fertile place to dig.

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.

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

Carving a Masterpiece- a Shi Rensa poem

clip these broken wings
to find a new way of flight
put your mind to work

put your mind to work
bringing art from cobwebbed wings
we carve through despair

we carve through despair
to discover a masterpiece
fly beyond limits

fly beyond limits
to create your own meanings
form fierce confidence

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.

vigor and magic – a poem

part with your stale thoughts

breathe in new inspiration

meet the future here

 
 

meet the future here

dip into dawn’s bracing dew

morning’s part of joy

 
 

morning’s part of joy

skill joins creative vigor

to reveal magic

 
 

to reveal magic

greet life’s every moment

with measure of heart

To Know Love – a poem

the flames in your eyes

cast a shadow o’er the moon

to cage my hunger

sights are set upon my heart

to bring to light fear

look into my weakened soul

for me     to know love

 

for me to know love

I’ll worship     your     every     breath

till the last      sun      sets

loves anguish… thirst – an open poem letter

I self-destruct when

your words are lost from my life

dread pervades this void

 

dread pervades this void

as my ego begs for hope

life devastates me

 

life devastates me

when your eyes embrace with mine

own          these thoughts hunger

 

own these thoughts           hunger

and thirst           to demolish walls

for identities
