I here attempt to show the Rubiyat; as a fragrent entity, the words/empathy of which I alludeTo as petals of flowers, ( you may have guessed as much? ) in the 1st lines it effectspeople of all ages, enveloping them in its form and narrative, Rubiyat is based around either a 5 or 4 syllable per line count, hence my "penta meteron" "tetra pedes" ." to try to place its structure within the " flow of its images" That I attempt to convey, the sober black being ink.. 'hope you enjoy this piece..! Yours Joe.."
Of bud bossed delicate; in its aroma much will enfold!
The turbulence of youth; also the seasoned and the old.
Tetra pedes, cross pages, sober.. in black, throughout the ages
Oh! to pass to others this understanding; and in bold.
Manifold are images, ‘thrusting now fresh into flower,
To awareness, of precious cargo; as in life’s laden bower...’
Penta metron sketch outlines, though imperfectly employed;
I reach to the stars today; as yet passes my hour!...
Translucence shows within the fading of life’s colour
As this continuing expressive awaits its turn, of another!..
My thoughts fill like pages, to blossoms in bloom
A soft falling, as petals; to your earth, my sister & brother...
To re-count of life’s possibility's... in the Rubaiyat form;
Melding its grandeur; to the bland magnitude of today’s norm!
Opening in its intricacy, the doorway to ecstasy
Playing many a cadence, relayed from its echoes borne.
Ever may its blossoms & completeness be flowering,
Entwining with the lines of the sages, to forever cling!
Refreshing the heart; perhaps a world? now tired and worn.
To a climax of prosody, does this weave of true praises sing.
