Untitled Poem

Always Believing,    Constantly Deceiving,         Ever, Forever, Grieving; Holding Implications,     Just Knowing Lamentations,         Making Numerous Odd Provocations; Questionable Reasons,     Sovereign Treason, Understanding Valiance,     Waning Xistence, Yet Zealous. I would love some comments on this one. I’d especially like to know if anyone notices the … shall we say “theme”?

Learning to Write Poetry

After sharing a recent poem, I was asked “Where did you get your inspiration for that?” My immediate answer was, “I don’t know; it just . . . came to me.” In a way, I felt this was true, but every action first begins with a thought, so I decided to break it down. ItContinue reading “Learning to Write Poetry”

A Poem for Christmas

Angelic messenger addressing the blessed  Mary, aware of the heir she carries in her Womb. There’s no room for whom is proven to be our King. He’ll end dominion of sin and then we’ll sing Of his glory. We’ll orate the story Each year, cheering “It’s here!” but we’re Drifting. Sifting through gifts, not upliftingContinue reading “A Poem for Christmas”

Staying Close at Christmas

As Winter chills, everything stills,  And we’re all staying inside. The birds have flown to places unknown,  The leaves have fallen and dried. We’re tucked away, and we may stay,  From people far apart, But love is lawed by the power of God,  When Jesus is in our hearts. No distance or span or powerContinue reading “Staying Close at Christmas”

Fighting

I was called away to fight and I never, Had second thoughts to endeavor, To engage an enemy that attempted, To come against us with contempt. I returned to my country only to find, That citizens within were turning blind, Fighting each other without even knowing, The goal they were reaching or where they wereContinue reading “Fighting”

Halloween

Leaves are rattling, ruffling, rustling, Beware! Beware! Hands are thwacking, thumping, thudding, Who’s there? Who’s there? Footsteps scampering, scurrying, scuttling, More tricks! More tricks! Night winds whistling, whipping, whispering, Who’s next? Who’s next? Teeth are chawing, chomping, crunching, More treats! More treats! Spirits are moping, moaning, mourning, To sleep, to sleep. Graves are quelling, quieting…Continue reading “Halloween”

Food For Thought

“You are what you eat, you know,” you may have heard it said; So what form of nutrition, is better to be fed? Eat some sweets to help you have, a pleasant countenance; A slice of homemade humble pie, to curb your arrogance. Take any hurtful comments, with a grain of salt; To err isContinue reading “Food For Thought”

Victim

Beautiful art, without a signature, Spider, Be proud of your work. Why do you hide there? Ashamed of your creation, the role you’re born to play? Do you mourn for the victims of the lies you convey? Knowing that you’ll trap them empirically, Feeding on their flesh, vampirically, Just like you did with me. CopyrightContinue reading “Victim”

Bullied

The sounds of the crowds around me, drowning My thoughts. I ought not to be fraught with Jealousy, indelibly. To hell with me; To hell with them. Endlessly rendering Judgment and grudges, uttering loveless Orgies of words. Gorging on stories that are more or less Lies that are cited as wise. Their eyes always dryContinue reading “Bullied”

Rain is a Poem

Rain itself is a poem – Sounds that are rhyming, Rhythmic timing, Dark and foreboding or sweet and endearing. It can be touching and light, Or it may drench us like So many tears. Short and sweet – A cloud burst; Or it may be the worst Storm we have seen. Interpreted differently, It mayContinue reading “Rain is a Poem”
