the safety blanket – a poem

the silent night sighs

with relief from the glares of man

sun rests within shade

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

Through My Eyes – a poem

through simian eyes

she can almost see freedom

from behind cold bars

 

from behind cold bars

kind voices spur her dreams      hope

pony her language

 

pony her language

for true insight to open

effort must happen

 

effort must happen

to bring quality of trust

be shepherds of life

The definition of PONY here isa literal translation of a foreign language text. For example, Robert Pinsky is reported to have used a literal translation in preparing his translation of Dante‘s Inferno (1994), as he does not know Italian. Similarly, Richard Pevear worked from literal translations provided by his wife, Larissa Volokhonsky, in their translations of several Russian novels.

This poem uses the Haiku form with a repeating pattern of the 3rd line of one stanza being the 1st line of the next. I started this pattern during a previous post. Give it a try if you like.

I composed this in response to Jibber Jabber with Sue’s poetry prompt of QUALITY, Pensitivity’s Three Things Challenge of PONY, ALMOST, and FROM. and my Haiku Poetry Challenge words CHIMPANZEE and KISS. Click the links to go to the challenges.

The Quenching Cup – a poem

her name called       moves her,

from the summer’s scorching heat,

clouds teasing relief

 

clouds teasing relief,

give hope of a friendly pool,

to cool the burning

 

to cool the burning

she crawls to the edge to drink

from this lake of fate

 

from this lake of fate

the point        a quenching rebirth

she may soar         again

This poem uses the Haiku form with a repeating pattern of the 3rd line of one stanza to be the 1st line of the next. I am not aware of a Haiku form using this pattern, not that it matters.

Advice to the Paid – a poem

Any advice or thought,

brief each one set to carouse,

or they’ll loose their pay.

You should click HERE to check out the Worker Bee Wikipedia page. I didn’t know the Worker Bee was female. There are ELEVEN tasks the Worker Bee performs listed on the page. Amazing. Think about how many societal structures of living creatures are based around a female with females being the hardest workers.

To Know the Future – a poem

 

Do you have intent

while you dream of the future,

give thought to your past.

 

 
A Haiku for my challenge this week: Intent&Thought
 
Inspired by the quote below. One I live by, a mantra if you will, as a former History teacher and writer of Historical fiction. When you do know history you look at what is happening today and you know what will happen tomorrow. And it’s heartbreaking.

George Santayana‘s famous aphorism “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it” is inscribed on a plaque at the Auschwitz concentration camp in Polish translation and English back-translation

A Poem of Challenges…

a voice from on high

raining down over blind hearts

 the shared truth triumphs

 

The mind plus the heart makes for change.

A whisper of placation will do,

as will just praying from your pew.

Groupthink who buys that…will derange.

Those aware are bound to outrange.

Fools who hate, fear, and deny,

why degenerate, prove your why?

He’s in his fortress, while you fight?

Him or the blood, you know which’s right.

For him, no grace, a nation’s cry.
