42

42

Season and reason pass away
Like feathers dancing in the wind
All time should hold a steady pace
Not join a race into the sun
The breakneck speed, intense, bucolic
As hearts and minds collide undone
The passing tide is rising fast
And waves approach full with intent
Then with a blow havoc rent
No life has truly ended
Time will soon make three from two
Creating love from hearts unbent

Burn ' s Night

The snow lay crisp as angel's hair.
As dawn awoke the world lay cold and bare
Was ever there a sight so rare?
What light! The sun! The glow!
Take flight and watch the path with care,
Or sit and watch the show!
Robert Burn is a celebrated Scottish poet. His poem are generally written in 6 line stanzas in an aaabab rhyme scheme, with the a lines written in tetrameter and the b lines in diameter. This was my little contribution today. I picked snow since the East Coast of the United States in currently Under Snowpoxalyse 2015.

Thaw

Thaw

A noise that starts off slowly
Imperceptible in the background
Slowly
Building
A bit of a crack in the distance
Then suddenly a thunderous roar
The sounds of the thaw
Permeate
Invade
Time has come to move forward
Spread out from winter’s grip
Its hold gradually lessens
Then
With a snap
It is over
The silence is deafening

Nightmare

Nightmare

The light is gone and hid from view
It disappeared one day
And took with it the sun and moon
‘Caused joy to pass away
A glimmer is all ‘twould take
To make the world okay
But now our life blood spills away
And we wait in nightless day
We’ll feast on the returning
Step once more, into the fray
Until that day, we shall march forth
Keeping the nightmares at bay

Hidden Key

Hidden Key

While we see The floating gossamer dreams elude and move away
They keep at bay From fairy dreams and flying free they change the mood
I must conclude That night will stop the endless day and sand will stop the sea
I now can see By waking dreams we all are wooed then time will pass away
If we stay Our passion’s freedom is the key to life pursued
And being shrewd It lights the path to show the way and shows to us the key

Power

Power

Keep calm and steady heads
Lest madness grow in our veins
For the world is free of reason
It infects the very soul
A swelling resonance erupts
It pounds and drums in time
Encroaching on everything
Our reason will set all free
They come now to topple us
With raised and steady arms
As we fall, together
Reason has swept the land

Generations

Generations

They go where time does not expire
And wait for no new moon
Winter falls in summer’s swoon
The creeping vine begins to seed
A world explodes in endless fire
Mouths fill with the taste of mead
And liquor turns the stoutest liar
Some obstacles become a boon
If, of our lives, we do take head
We walk all day on tight rope wires
And end up with the greatest wound
So shall we soon change our tune?
We make ourselves fulfill our need
Our grandest wish becomes desire
More will come like endless weeds
Of everything you will tire
It will come full circle soon
And the look will be parent to the deed
