FEELINGS

FEELINGS


Feelings,
Masters of my destiny
Lords of my life
Strength of my dreams
Instigators of my actions

Burning fire you are 
Consuming my whole 
Being:
My heart
My mind 
My soul
My spirit,  
As you relentlessly
Demand: 
To be conceived
To be formulated 
To be understood
To be expressed!

A Herculean task it is,
I swear, 
Such an enterprise,
For how one could ever
Constrain, you, the unconstrained 
And mold you into:
Phonemes
Syllables
Words
Phrases
Sentences 
And still retain 
Your explosive 
Dynamism?
 
No language exists,
So vast
So deep
So accurate
So supple 
As to pay justice,
To your intensity
To your desire
To your beauty
To your love!

Thus, having no
Alternative, 
I turn to the only language
There is,
The one that the 
Cosmos speaks,
And
The universe alone
Comprehends:
The language of 
Harmony,
That we humans 
POETRY name
BUT 
Even then 
To describe you
I AM UNABLE!

LIGHT OF CHRISTMAS



Let your light, sweet Jesus  
Into our souls’ crib to shine  
Bless our hearts, divine infant 
Your love, forever to enshrine!

THIRST FOR LOVE



My thirst for undying love I wished to quench 
Drinking from the source of your enviable lips  
Few droplets of nectar my soul was able to sip
That ample were though my craving to eclipse!

HEAVENLY TUNE



Your soothing voice echoed love’s 
Heavenly tune

And  

In my fiery heart, at last, melody
Refuge found!

Pondering

As I ponder my weak bladder, you see.
I travel around the corner from thee.
Be careful if around the corner you go.
Please for your sake, watch for yellow snow.

UNDYING LOVE

 

The whisper of your passionate voice
Was amplified by my ruptured heart

That

Into ecstasy of undying love was thrown
And now can’t, from you, live apart!

YOU AND I ONE




You and I,
Looked at each other,
Eyes met 
Hands clasped 
Lips joined
Hearts beat in unison
Minds connected
Souls united

The “I” disappeared
The “YOU” vanished 
The “US” appeared
The “WE” was born

Inseparable
Undivided
Whole
One 
March forward

Ours the joy
Ours the happiness
Ours the life
Ours the destiny
Ours the bliss to
The end of 
Times!

ONCE AGAIN




Once again, My Lord,
Towards Thy Wisdom I turn 
For
An answer to find

Why the many, instead of seeking
Thy eternal Bliss
 
Chose

With the pleasures of phenomena 
To bind?

SUNRISE

 
It is not in the east
That the sun rises, for me, my love

But

In the unfathomed beauty of your
Enchanting soul!

DAWN




Light’s resurrection

           Nature’s awakening
 
                                  Beauty's pride:                     

                                                         Dawn!

Make me a prisoner of your blistering love

So

In the dungeon of your arms, my freedom
To find!

For

Surrounded it is by the walls of faith!

SEED OF CONCERN



My Lord,

Give us the will
To overcome our heartless indifference for
Those who suffer 

So as 

Able us to be,
In the ever-stretching desert of apathy, your  
Seed of concern to sow!

HER INDIFFERENCE



Certain it is,
That her rejection, untold suffering upon   
Him, would bring
 
But

Her indifference,
Would be the one, his condemnation to 
Unhappiness to sign!

LIFE



A mighty river life is,
Where 
The powerful waters of
Rushing feelings, 
Roaring emotions  
And 
Thunderous ideas flow,
That 
In wonder its source has
And 
Its estuary in awe!

A season's dance


avant-garde

What art thou, splendid maid, inclined to verse?
Upon the skies, the stars thy words rehearse.

The darkness cometh with a Fall's request
while in thy kitchen, Gail, should do your best;

for spicy tastes the famous bard now begs
but you regaled his pleas with two boiled eggs.

The Eros Iamb feet, sung by the sire,
repeated are by stray cats' alto choire.

while resonant, of music flaws he shuns,
cats meow at him, from two deep tin trash cans.

Your bucket-full of water then, is thrown,
to fall upon his head and new iphone.

Enchanted so, thou callest the fine bard,
to dance with you Fall's jazzy avant-garde.

NATURE

NATURE


Nature:
Conglomeration of unbounded energy into matter
Under 
The auspices of paramount universal Logos 
That
The harmonious coexistence of opposite forces 
Established
By 
Masterfully choreographing it with the help
Of 
The infallible divine will 
And 
Painstakingly interwoven with the assistance
Of 
Mighty space and time!

Sensationalism or Journalism

(Another childhood or teen years poem.)

Newsprint small talk
in Mediocrity's lead pot
rustles and gossips while,
splashed spectacularly across
the speckled page of
Society's intellect,
a murder making column one
hides the hushed massacre
of minds.
