(That Such Brilliant Gems May A Lifetime Last)

Disarray Contest

Giving my sincere thanks for this fine contest theme, that has so truly, deeply and greatly inpired me this bright and glorious new morn!

As ink into eager white paper soak

a voice from invisible realm commands

rest your old bones beneath this mighty oak

write as I, your brilliant muse demand

show this world, poet that has not forgot

that night stars are shining for a true cause

poetry oft heals soul's decaying rot

teach some to life's fast pace give needed pause.

 

Disarray

Within huge caverns of my disarray
fly interpreting birds with rainbow wings
well sung arrow-shot words, vanquish the grey
while they fly about, dawn's gleaming rays sing!

This radiant scene, stirs a weeping heart
as morn's bright colorful songbirds appear
red roses preen, as throat'ed music starts
I rise with glee, as joy replaces fear!

Sun then speaks with oak trees swaying in tune
as blue sky above more radiance casts
wind tags along, its soft breeze a nice boon
to harmony, as treasure ships flow past!

As red sun, its resplendent array gifts
tinge of sorrows, as beauty ends too fast
yet such fine manna, spirit so uplifts
that such brilliant gems may a lifetime last!

Oh, this is my very fave. It touched something in me. It doesn't happen often. I think, I need a time to figure out what exactly.

Thank you my friend. I am sure you will find out perhaps that what it touched is the appreciation of poetry that rests deep with your own poetic heart and soul. God bless...

Dearest Robert, this is an invigorating poem that imparts energy to the reader's mind with your vibrant word image! The first verse sets the scene for poetic disarray if the most colourful kind- wishing you the best for the contest! Warm regards, Aqua M.
