Words from the Oracle

We are in our fall before the season comes
Misting eyes and dropping a dandy heart
A sullen silence around the bee hive hums
History has no center left, facts fall apart

I have nothing left for honey but my words
Listening cleanse the eyes to see forever
Soon the sky flocks with all departing birds
Old bonds are unbroken, new loves sever

But to come again in heat and passion and lie
Cradled against the unknown of life's tomorrows
So summer goes, and sweet flowers will die
To bloom again as carpet for graves of sorrows.

Soon gold will fall from trees in a gray misty shroud
And all that was green will be brown and dim
And wild grass will bow where the land was ploughed
And wind will tap on its trumpet life's requiem

Intriguing words. Mother Nature's wisdom for the seasons changing, the death of life and the renewal of birth. she had such a wisdom before man went and screwed with her inner workings. I wonder what she spelled out for the next 50 years of our planet. Unless I'm way off and the whole nature element is a metaphor of some sort. I guess I'm not sure... Thanks for sharing L'nass. -Yoni

Much for the reader to think about in this poem. Nice use of imagery and rhyme. Definitely begs for more than one reading--which I gladly have done. Keep on writing my friend. Thank you for your kind words on my poem. Karen

Amazing poem, L'Nass! Reminds me a bit of Whitman's "When Lilacs Last at the Dooryard Bloomed." (Hope I got the title right. Beautifully penned! Love, Carolyn
