Stone in the Cold

By Caleb Smith


#1
 

 Through darkness I come with a stealthy hand,
who but a man shadowed could be so bold?
My eyes hunt take a reckoning of the land,
look into the hollows, constant and cold.

My companion solitude, still as stone,
I am the seeker of winds, and of scent.
By the trees yonder, I wait not  alone;
my aim is true, and my purpose unbent.

Yet, death does not bring a smile to my lips,
nor a lift unto this wayfaring heart;
in grief I am fed, from  silence I sip,
and from the old wood, I shall never part.

The hunt will remain for those who pursue,
a  life that no death could ever undo.

#2 selection C. H. 

A life that no death could ever undo,
for there are portals I've yet to find.
Hidden life in the green I wish to pursue,
oh, the secrets of life and death entwine.  

I search and search, I will know no defeat.
Each corner turned will find new paths to tread.
The deer or the bear, the fox that I meet
will reveal the secrets of life not death.

So, let the wood talk, hear what it reveals.
Riddle its meanings there to be understood.
The less armor worn, we brandish or wield,
higher truth follows our message of good.

Come into the woods as in days of youth,
we still face the test of absolute truth.

 #3 of 3 J. G.

We still face the test of absolute truth,
the nights coming fast, I travel unheard.
The reverence I feel, was born in youth,
tempered by sage, burnt offerings for birds.

Tormented by brambles whose thorns I collect
I come to remains of struggles long gone,
feathers and crushed bone, on these I reflect.
I'm hoping once more, my arms are still strong.

A pine marten scurries, close to my step,
the sweet scent of birch gum, his claws unearth.
My arrow's still sheathed, for creeks I have leapt.
I have grown cold, but my spirit rebirthed.

Tracks at the creek, the water I savor
the brush moves, my aim does not waver. 

#4 Marlon

The brush moves, my aim does not waver
Exhaling calm's breath, which merge with the wind
Breeding bellow lures hunt in my favor
Striking gold adjacent to its front limb

My ears navigate towards death's language
The soul's soliloquies sung by the stag
Look into its eyes, buck-knives cure anguish
Table blessings spoil if hunters lag

Blood seasons the arrow for my taste buds
Delicacy offered by pure nature
Unaware of wolves pursuit to taste blood
My meal and I, are conjoined as flavor

Nature is the keeper of its wanted
When hunter is graced being hunted

 BUT the action/suspense must BE here- Sonnet 4 begins

BE VERY SENSORY STAY IN FIRST PERSON PRESENT TENSE

Line one verse 4

the brush moves, my aim does not waver.

    marlin, line 2 first verse doesn't read exactly right. suggestion: the bow arches, death flies with the wind- - -It gets rid of a little "tontoism" in that line, also agrees with "arrow" in the last verse. Also making bellow plural (bellows) third line gets rid of tontoism there--------- (breeding bellows lure hunt in my favor) or you could just say "a breeding call lures hunt in my favor". hope this makes sense to you.

    yes .. But everyone not chosen will get ranked separately - I think I will give one more 1 to the best sonnet in general not used in the crown then 2-5 no one so far has even done a sonnet I would rate less than 3!
  1. Date: 1/28/2014 8:28:00 AM
    yes, I like Jimbo's also. :) I also loved both of Nettes. I think the crowd has chosen wisely to move the poem forward in suspense.... love to all, catie :)

    Yours was excellent Catie perfect flow, nette's was very excellent & suspenseful to we ladies who haven't had much woods experience have a harder time with the topic, thanks so much for your graciousness both of you
  1. Date: 1/28/2014 12:35:00 AM
    they each have elements that together would be stunning but I realise they cannot be blended into one sonnet, so that said I would have to go for Jimbo's as an overall one....

    Your original one is one of the best, so far. Collectively brilliance will be achieved. There are no losers in comradery!
  1. Date: 1/27/2014 9:52:00 PM
    I liked all three, but the one that seems to suit the subject best, the one that puts me in the bush, best shows me, is JG. Nette's original third verse is ART, perfect, have no idea why it was changed. My favourite for tone, language and flow is Catie's original. all fawn's come from a doe, so I don't get the change, why it was necessary? Now, JG, the edit, Line 2 needs a comma between fast and I. In line 11, I'd exchange the word "for" with "though" so as to drop one of the many commas. Line 13, could be altered to "The creek slakes thirst as water I savor," just an idea for purpose of flow. You guys are doing AWESOME. I'm still struggling with the subject, but loving the tone, loved

    Ok Nette's second one, I like the content but it misses the flow here and there, but it is staying with the theme and the re-work is flowing much better but I prefer nette's 3rd stanza and last line, if they could be conjoined ????

    yo!.. " hunger for prey claims my thirst harassed is figurative..".. the seeker has been hankering to hunt though he waits for the right time to aim at his game .." moose descends"--- from a high plane, it comes down and settles on grass... that's how in goes, folks... i had fun with this.. :)

    just so this old redneck boy is not misunderstood, let me add. I am against hunting for anything unless the specie is endangered by overpopulation. Even if the specie is a pest, I feel it was made by a higher power than me and I have no right to completely irradicate. Unless we are talking abut fire ants, of course.

    Nette: your question mark line 12-----you are right. The remark is not really practical- - -- -- -While horses lay on trees to yawn away - The horses would sleep standing up or simply lying on the ground-let’s change to- - - - - "While horses flick tails to keep flies away"- - - of course that would establish a season element into the poem and I don’t know whether that does or doesn’t make a difference to Deb

    Of the 3 submitted, the one that reflects closest to the spirit of hunting, would be Jimbos. But,,,in the second sonnet, Charles leads us into hearing the voice of nature in his last 6 lines.... so....hmmm....
