IN STILLNESS


At last, in the mute of twilight hums I am possessed with silence shaven, whiteness of peace touches the breath melting the morsels of earth’s flesh from soiled, weary shirts: my unzipped body dehydrated from needles of toil, soil, boil. Dear time, be my friend in these hours; the linens of cells are bathed in morning’s sweat and raging howls of a day ache for an ounce honeyed by the balm of a tearing mind... along blades of sky coasting, faint light brushes my dreary lips cradled on a nest like tattered notes unsung. At last, losing the self to the din of night half-dark half-light, I cling to the lingering octave of solitude; the oneness with my crawling skin as I release all the pining from the womb, that in stillness, I taste fresh pulp and wine. scott thirtyseven's Solitude Contest

    They could feature your art every week and it would be well deserved. Who writes lines of fire in every stanza? You become exactly what you are expressing, with precisely placed words. The well of creativity you draw from, I sip amazed and schooled!!

    The last line "drives the fingernail into the heart" as was said in reference to the ru'bai. It is fitting for this poem a well. Good luck in the contest! Peace & Love Matthew Anish

    Reading this was so soothing for me, nette-- comfort and relaxation wrapped in your words-- put in the sound of a babbling brook and I can just get lost. I bet this will place well in the contest-- also maraming salamat sa pagpuri sa sulat ko, naungkat sa 'baul' matapos ang ilang buwan... balik init na kaya! Haay, parang summer ulit?? hugs din & ingat lagi ;)
