    Default Poetry 101

    The Ecumenical Thought House thread was getting a little long. Let's write here from now on, okay? At least until we hit forty pages again... and we will...

    I look forward to your submissions.

    A soft drizzle
    Painted his window
    With a delicate touch.
    Inside,he held himself
    Trying to endure
    The piercing pain.
    “How, oh God, can I go on?
    I have lost all, and now I am lost!”

    A downpour abruptly
    Pounded the window
    And he knew at once
    That Jesus wept with him.
    Patience is a virtue.

    Default journal entry re book re morikami

    I constructed a lure of honey and tempura. Yet, you did not come. Women killed a mockingbird koi this morning, before dew and your eyes, and they soaked it in your sugar pools. You did not come. That is the topic. That estranged rockport jacuzzi you discovered; that swirling ecological stew that crafted minnows and fish with legs: water baked to a sheen of lemon grass and the moment i realized, when julian revealed, that we could still climb.


    Area of Contemplation # 20

    When james reached the summit he removed his shirt and shoes. well, isn't that the way? desdemona smoked and not lightly - tossed her stones over the mosa and opened converse storks. there was no time or incline for speech or kiss or warmth or ice cold lemonade at tweleve oh clock. she said no, before, and meant it. she said no. desdemona unfurled and curled into a branch as james sang;

    shhh, shhh, what can i say? you, bird, singing in the lead of bright
    (placing fingers over the mouth of granite from san francisco)
    shuffles her; is this the pleasance, james?
    the what?
    the pleasance?

    every once in awhile like that toppled pine, desde.
    the one on purpose from the storm?
    nope.

    just that One.
    but james?
    yes?
    you did not come?

    no.

    how to help a friend
    when she wants help
    but can't accept
    gracefully - or at all

    so much pain of heart, head
    she asked for acceptence
    I heartily proferred
    she said it helped

    yet every conversation
    moans and cries
    imagining hurdles
    depression reigns

    my advice falls
    on deaf ears
    joy is a choice
    make it!
    em - luanne

    imagination is the only weapon we have in the war against reality!

    success is simply getting up one more time than you fall

    you smell like an airplane. are you high?

    bob dylan is our speed, with grim reapers and green jacket docents. airy seats in the balcony.

    nah, Janis Ian knows flight - remote visitations and astral colours - acid green and purple.

    haze, if you listen.

    i tuck my feet behind his wallet. toe the small of his back,
    curved in a hollow my owl hole my cozy who?

    who

    stole this from me?

    i said: who?

    who left me salt and peppered, unable to stop shaking?
    quiet thief. who are you
    that lifted my keys and holes
    at once? nest and feathers and one solitary warm, warm runny egg.

    quiet, tiptoed thief. quicken.

    you took my voice;
    ah, you took my wings.

    Even now,
    as my veins constrict
    and my vision blurs
    with the slow ascent
    of this boomerang migraine,

    I can still remember clover:

    stitching beads of dew
    and queen anne's lace
    through one flower's slipknot,
    til the sun shone
    and I became a fair-y girl,
    dancing free verse
    with summer's poetry

    and later, when I licked
    O'Keefe's shadows
    in a honeysuckle slide,
    that playful tug
    and sugared promise
    became the stroke and dimension
    of my nourishment.

    Now, as the neon and samsung
    hum their painful thrum
    I again close my eyes
    and run barefoot

    past the white ribbons of deutzia,
    past the secret rabbit hole near the fence,
    far, far past oak and leaf and acorn,
    through the cool fields of clover,

    run back to the time
    I sewed honey into my hair
    and whispered
    dandelion wishes:
    love me.
    Please, love me.
