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?

wisdom in patience – a poem

If you get caught up in an offense someone does against you, you will never complete a mission you have set for yourself. Movements pitter out, fade away. Then nothing is accomplished. Offenses are used as misdirection to distract you and then the foe wins.

e’er your zeal should be

free from others wrongdoing

is patient wisdom

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.

 

I thought I would do a few challenges in one today. And I did mean to spell the word as “loose.” I chose  four this week. Jibber Jabber with Sue’s – Advice, One Daily Prompt’s – Carouse, Pensitivity’s Three Things Challenge, and my own Haiku Challenge – Intent&Thought.

requires great instincts

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.
