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.

[When I'm depressed]

When I'm depressed
do not try to cheer me up
and don't be distressed.

Clouds will disperse
as always they must;
so, let me be terse:

DON'T TELL ME I NEED TO CHEER UP.
Sit with me, walk with me, distract me somehow.
This gloom will break up

when it does...
Don't bother to ask
why, or when, or how, because...

it was what it was.

Static

We barely touched,
sparks flying, depression dying,
amazement dawning
at what we never knew

existed, a solitary moment
when time stopped
until the clock reset itself
and life moved on.

Paid for with your arrogance

We provide the means,
less than you want,
yet more than it seems
until you forget
and then — and then — we deem
it's time to remind you.

We scarcely complain
of unforgiving abuse,
the bruises and wounds that remain
regardless — until —
we cleanse our hands of your stain —
and then we bury you.

Time erases all thoughts —
of the lies you sold
and the truth you sought;
the way to the stars now forever lost;
your graveyard bought,
paid for with your arrogance.

I don't care what you're selling today.
Ain't buying that load of crap, no way.

April poem-a-day poetry spot!

April 9—Persona—write a poem in the voice of a person who is not you.

Reading the other entries, I didn't answer the prompt in the same way. Like... were we supposed to pick a specific persona? Mine is non-specific and although this is how I often think, it's not how I speak (I'm either totally polite or go off and use more colorful language; s*** is not my go-to word).

Also... I use the word s***. Purposely. But WdC reduces that to s*** because my p-log is 13+. I lowered it to 13+ because too many readers here refuse to read anything that's not allowed in grade school and contests have 13+ limits, as do reviewers and newsletters. Like... 13 year old kids don't say s***! ??? Color me pissed, but I'm tired of fighting the censors. It is what it is.

You've got mail

I'll get there.
I'll get there.
And if I get lost?
I slime a trail to find my way back.

No need to hurry.
No, never a need to hurry.
And when I'm tired —
I stop.

I'll get there,
wherever, some day, perhaps.
My home, my fortress
sits snug on my back.

I'm no slug.
No, never been a slug.
Just a slow moving snail
delivering your mail.

I responded to ~♥~ Krysha ~♥~ but cut and post here instead.

I believe your poll
 
POLL
Are you looking for in-depth reviews?  (E)
We all know in-depth reviews help us grow as writers... but do you want them?
#2270829 by ~♥~ Krysha ~♥~

refers to prose. Poets want something else.

1. Did you like it?

2. Can you offer any advice to strengthen it poetically.

DO NOT:

3. Correct my grammar/spelling when I'm speaking in dialect.

4. Treat it as if it's a college or grade school essay or report.

ADVICE:

5. If you have never written poetry or are tone-deaf and refuse to read it out-loud, do me a favor... don't review it. Send a comment instead. Comments are welcome.

6. If your only experience is English-only-speaking MidAmerica and my writing isn't... and that offends you or confuses you, don't review. But please leave a comment so I know.

I appreciate comments/reviews by tight-form experts (oriental, short forms) like Tinker or free-flowing (beatnik) verse experts like Brian K Compton, Thankful 🪶. There are others who are experts in their chosen field. My poetic offerings lose to them all the time. *Laugh* But... if you're a novel-writer don't bother lecturing me on haiku... because I know you don't have a clue.

Clematis, Queen of the Trellis

She climbs from year to year,
a bud here, a bloom there.

It's enough to let her flower,
bidding bees enter her bower.

But don't be fooled;
she's no one's tool.

Strangling, frightening,
her tendrils tightening.

Napping is for Napoli... when I get there

So little time left
to hail hello,
to bid good-bye,
why waste it here in bed,
dazzled from dreams
snared by nightmares.

They insistently whisper lies.

Better to get up, go out,
do whatever must be done.

It's in the doing,
not the don't-ing
that keeps a life well-spun.

New beginnings

I will ease
into this new beginning,
my mother gone,
my brain soon to follow.
The roads lead ever on.
Only the dead are left behind.
And even them...
they haunt fresh memories.
I'll search cold skies
to find which paths now open.
So closed for so long,
it will not matter.
First flight out,
come find me in my seat.
I'm going somewhere.

Honeybuns

There once was a lady named Bunny
who lived with her bestest friend Honey;
         they made cookies and baked
         fudgy chocolate cheesecake;
together each new day dawned sunny.
