an emerald eye

A rugged face, generations old
This old heart once fiery and bold
An age ago passion burned within him
A spirit and pride never to be broken
His life devoted to frugal comfort and
His passion, devoted to the things of the soul
Nowdays standing along his old streets
Amongst shadows where old ghosts meet
Not many faces turn, no need, these days,
Just a blind eye for his dying ways

    Lovely piece, Owen. You have much to say in this piece: the wearing of time, age, body...but the strength in the face of change. Wonderful! Donna

    This is excellent. We ought to remember our ancestors and give them credit for our birth. I like the flow of the message in this poem. So often many forget. I like the reflection in this poem. Great job and welcome to the Soup! ~Joseph

    Again Owen, I think your writing is amazing. Its profound and unique to you. Keep on writing, this little lass cant wait to read more. Tell me about Ireland one day, Ive never been there and greatly want to. I imagine its quite beautiful in some, or most parts. Always, Jessica
