L'aura del campo


'é a lua, é a lua, na quintana dos mortos'
♣ Federico García Lorca ♣


Higgins Street Bridge, April 25th  2009, Missoula, Montana


L'aura del campo. A breeze in the meadow. So it began the last day of Spring, 2005; on the 16th day of the month of Light of the year 162. This is a supplement to my daily journal written to a friend, my muse; notes I do not share. Here I will share what the breeze has whispered to me.

Silenced

Speak with bloody tears
when lips, now sealed,
cannot part.
Once you were shy,
hiding behind skirts,
silent in the corner,
trembling in the closet,
safe until you spoke.
Then you were hushed.
And now you try to speak,
liquid leaking from blood-shot eyes,
writing across a blank face
in a script best understood
by sightless scribes.

Dark Dreamscapes Round 1 Image Prompt

For you were ancient before you were born

Enter the dreams of the waiting crone.
Learn her wisdom with each wheezing moan.
As woods clothe you against winds that bite,
Darkness becomes refuge from fiery light.
In her embrace let youthful dreams swim.
In her depths let outside worlds dim.
Forget whatever gnaws, chews or ails.
Cast childhood aside along winding trails.

Let go. Do not be bewildered,
For you were ancient before you were born.
See life renewing itself through the night.

Everything will now seem familiar.
Seek guidance from the watchful crescent 'fore morn.
Reach home by following your own inner light.

What I posted on the Newsfeed (as GC) not to offend the easily offended:

I penned a 'pregunta' in response to Rhymer Reisen's red wasp, combining Express-it-in-Eight's prompt 'aflame', Beholden and Bianca's challenge for "The Writer's Cramp. I won't enter it as I'm bitem-bound ... and lazy.

A question, an answer. The pregunta (that's Spanish for 'question', 'pergunta' in Portuguese) is essential a form of a series of Q&A couplets. For me to make it poetic I would use rhythm, rhyme, alliteration, repetition... something.

Rhymer's Red-bum Rising

Does any old wasp set your ass aflame?
Only when it's red and bears your name.

So, it's okay to call you what I choose?
Try it, punk, you've only one life to lose.

Oh, touchy now like some wimpy snowflake!
More like a blustery blizzard scrubbing your face.

So about that pimple on your ass...
Pop it quickly or kiss it fast.

Single son

What did you mumble when your mother died?
I mourned the woman who never knew me.

And were you appalled when your father passed?
Far better to go fast than linger.

Now that you're an orphan how do you feel?
Frankly, a weight has lifted for real.

How can you be so brutally blunt?
Bare was my back without brother.

[74b] 10/10-mn 10/9-fp 10/9-fr 9/8-bw

All these alliterations are also closely related linguistically.

Another approach would be alternating tone/accent/stress like Tang Dynasty poetry did with tone patterns. I'll need to work on a better example.

Untitled [73]

How can you manage this death without me?
You never were there when I was alive!

But now you're set free like a butterfly.
More like a puppy wounded and limping.

LET'S TALK PROCESS!

As my writer-friends know I'm scatter-brained and easily distracted... much like a cat. *Cat* So, it's normal for me to channel my inner Feline and vomit all over the page. *Vomit* Then... someone (usually me) has to clean up the mess. Sometimes there're diamonds hidden among the hairballs. *Rolleyes*

For "The Writer's Cramp Bianca, bless her pea-pickin' heart, wants us to write ONE doublet by noon tomorrow. *Shock* Well, never one to follow directions, I gagged up a bunch of... seven of them. I've cleaned them up some but left the originals as popnotes to amuse the curious (or bored).

Ah... since dialects divide us (they needn't, but...), some observations: choc'late is two syllables [a] choc-o-late like e-ve-ry would be three; 'all y'all' and 'ya' are American, mostly Southern, slang [b]; Goddess/God? a matter of linguistics and/or belief [b]; two-fer-one poems [b,c] twinsies, brothers from another mother; 'delicious' [d] is a double entendre as Delicious is a well-known apple where I grew up; 'gimme' [e] is slang for 'give me'; [f] is admittedly an aliterative hisssss and 'last night' can mean yesterday or 'YOUR last night' as sometimes I like the humor of ambiguity; 'vittles' = chow, grub, food, y'know? [g].

So these are the 7. If you have time, please quickly read and tell me which you liked the most (or disliked the least):

No calories, they said

At lunch, salted chocolate cookies beckon.
At home, "I reckon I could lose some weight."
