THIS VALENTINE OF MINE

Bliss - clouded windows of blue sky Kiss my parted lips with moon shine Miss me as the door divides us This valentine of mine is so fine Brand me yours, with a golden ring Hand in hand we whisper our vows Withstand anything together, dear Husband and wife as long as time allows

Now i know

Lore set in my mind
And I understood why
Poor is riches when one is content
Hand me contentment to triumph over my fears

Ideal life for me was to possess an abundance of riches  
As a young man I wanted to grow a happy chap 
Eye opening moments prevailed 
And changed my whole being

Many occasions in my life forced me to realize that
Happiness is for every man despite their state of wealth 
Mentors failed to unwind my state of unhappiness
Hacked by their shameful advices they vanished   

They run in different pathways 
Elate my soul so I can stand on my own 
They’ve feed me junk thus I’m stuck on their philosophy 
Emend my perceptions to flee their view of ordinary people 

Riches has created this wall around me and its separates us
People I grew up with can’t climb to where I am
Ridged is my life without real happiness
Peacetime is all I need for my soul  

Ordinary men has no walls around them
They are not afraid of scarcity 
Orders by economy has no grip over them
 They possess genuine happiness free of materialism

Farewell Kiss

Lips that knows no parting but bliss,   
Strips the soul of its wanton passion,  
Sips all what the lover will later miss,
Ships two bodies into heavenly tension;

Endless sorrow when it comes to pass,
Reminiscence bump of that poignant kiss,
Countless days become grey and amiss,
Absence is too much to bear and dismiss.

Kenn Nesbitt

Introducing Kenn Nesbitt, my choice for funny poet
Producing giggle poetry kids appreciate
Inducing guffaws that infect others with laughter
Sluicing silly nonsense on subjects kids can relate

Exciting themes on homework and animals Kenn writes.
Inciting worldwide laughs, in all this absurdity
Highlighting the imagination of any child
Inviting you to share this world of frivolity

Old Tree

withering branches fall from the old tree
life has passed for the tree; children playing on its limbs
fire was started from its parts to warm up some stormy hearts
husband and wife stood under the tree renewing their vows
of twenty years before 
Grown children now stand in front of the tree since it has to come down
Parents passed away left this legacy to them.
Each child says to the other lets make furniture from the tree for future generations
Decision made inside the old tree smile with a sigh.

umbrella of love

Umbrella of Love. 
If you drive along the asphalted narrow road that runs
Parallel with the vine plants, turn left, you will see
A muddy road more like a track now after rain,
From here you have to walk till you see a quiet little 
Corner where two stone walls meet; and you will
See- not a great deal- the place I’m going to plant
A carob tree comes spring. The reason for the corner 
Is two brothers who couldn’t agree whom it 
Belonged to so they left it untended and with time
No one took an interest in weeds and stinging plants. 
The tree will be in memory of a girl a met a day of rain
And she shared her pink umbrella with me. 
Not a big thing, but I was home from the sea and lost
In the big city, she gave me the shelter I needed.

The Binding

Abraham wrapped his robe about him,
Laced his sandals upon his feet,
Took his staff in his hand,
And started off down the path
To the place of which God had told him.

A young man rises early one cool morning
Washes himself and says the prayers,
Stuffs bricks of plastique inside his down vest,
Takes the detonator in his hand,
And walks off toward the border checkpoint.

Isaac said to his father Abraham,
“I see the wood and the fire,
But where is the lamb for our sacrifice?”

A pretty young girl with a smiling face
Her spirit fierce as the desert sun
Puts on a girdle of dynamite sticks
Wraps colored wires about her
Like an embroidered shawl
And stands waiting for a crowded bus.

And Abraham stretched forth his hand
And took the knife to slay his son

An aged man goes every day to the local mosque
To teach the children how bombs are made.
How a timer is set, how a charge is wired.
How a grenade is launched, how a machine gun fired.
Who to hate and who to kill,
And why “the cause” is worth the dying.

But the angel of God called out to Abraham,
And Abraham responded, “Here am I”.
“Do not lay your hand on Isaac, your son,
For I can see that your faith is strong.
I will make of you a great nation.
Through you all the world shall be blessed.”

God calls us too, from beyond the centuries.
Do not kill your children to prove your faith in Me.
Do not take away the lives I have given you.
Use your time on Earth for nurturing, 
Creating, and growing.
Hearken to My voice!

Elegances beyond my senses 
The charms ‘n serenities

A-ha

Unwanted laughter spills out in unexpected times.
Unmatched destinies cross paths once in a while.
Unwonted qualities introduce themselves as mimes.
Unceasing affections refuse to travel anymore miles.
Flip the unforeseen anxieties inside out.
Strip the reserved tenderness from curbs.
Dip the concentrated senses into a drought.
Grip the unyielding fervor until it burps.

THE ROSE

The tiny fresh bud in my garden,
Slowly bloomed into a bright rose,
Spreading exquisite fragrance all around,
That’s what it decided and chose.

Holding its head high in every storm,
Innocence lies in the way it smiles,
No matter what lies in the eyes of beholder,
It urges a smile at least for a while.

Sometimes offered to the Almighty God,
Or woven in a garland for a noble cause,
Sometimes trampled under harsh feet,
Still its scent engulfs us which we must applause.

It suffers pain to provide us with royal delicacies,
And brings joy and brightens many lives,
So friends, to make each other smile and happy,
Can’t we humans like God’s greatest creation, strive?

When your heart breaks

Your heart when it breaks
Yonder clouds enter the eyes
Under test the trust wrecks
Flower called love soon dies.

Your heart when it breaks
Near melts in distant crowd
Answer your question seeks
Unclear mind dons a shroud.

Your heart when it breaks
Rear time decays in wasteland
Pillar of understanding cracks
Structure of hope can’t stand.

Your heart when it breaks
Sheer sense in severe strain
Falters to decide what it takes
Another hand to hold again.

Angry eyes

Unclosed eyes spew anger stern
Unstoked smokeless fire of the wild
Unclasped lost togetherness burns
Uncleaned ashes cover soiled mind.

Fiery disdain the bloody eyes spray
Scary voice threatens harsh to hurt
Flowery attachments wilt in disarray
Wary heart sinks and splits apart.

Remorse could melt mind to tear
Dowse the fire in the burning eyes
Bruise healed mind would reappear
Wise and from ashes it would rise.

Enter Your Own Competition

Poetry contest I have now decided to soon sponsor
Try and write an original poem in any form for me
Why spirituality is an important and essential factor
By any measure in our strifed lives at present time.

If you feel in your troubled mind the pangs of agony
Grief has engulfed you like the dark mist all around
Brief sojourn in divine imagery will bring peace aplenty
Belief in God will make poem rhyme in ecstatic sound.

This contest I like but can’t enter I being the sponsor
Wise vision of passion you may use look deeply within
Disguise He wears making Him so difficult to discover
Surprise me with poem of divine image I haven’t seen.

September 17, 2017.
Form : Lento.

REALITY

What is real here in this world?
Am I real, my emotions, my pain and sorrow?
Or is my smile and laughter, the happiness borrowed?
What is real here in this very mind?

PRAYER

Lord, when I worry about the bills,
Knowing I don't have money-making skills,
Please be my complete provider,
As well as my ever present minder.
When my life knocks me down,
And all I can do is frown,
Please come and comfort me,
For I will always depend on thee.
When I'm confused about what to do.
When no one has answers except you,
Please make everything crystal clear,
Wiping out any doubt or fear.

END JAN 2018 STANDARD CONTEST - TRUE LOVE

TRUE LOVE ~~~~~~~~~~~~ Delight, when friendship turns into true love. Spite, when friends do not always agree. Might, when true love fits like a warm glove. Fright, when the friendship turns scary. True love, can be seen in each other's eyes. Pursue it with passion, dive into its depth. Hitherto, romantics say, "Eyes don't tell lies". Pursue love with passion, with every breath! ~~~~~~~~~~~~

Wedding

I see her coming down the aisle
Her dress as white as snow

All faces shining now with tears
And me like Romeo 

I stood pretending to be calm
She turned and looked at me

And all at once I realized
I will now be carefree

TRUTH

TRUTH dove, it never was of peace, of dryland found. shove, some need it to get them off the mark. love, affection for whatever; each other, sound. above all be one's self so don't live in the dark. dark, beware, or you can share it with a lover. park up, nay, an arboretum, trees can be fun. shark; man-eaters, no, a new food discovered. hark! the call of natures spring, new life begun!

A nonreader

She bragged she hated reading, in short
neither books nor magazines, speed nor stop signs
much less weekly warrants to pay her fines,
nor subpoenas to appear in court.

Depression

Depression is my only song
Transgression with poetic verse
Nonaggression where it may belong
Suppression of feelings of self worth

Days I have spent locked in my mind
Ways to escape these feelings I do not crave
Praise my ways to have my shadows defined
Raise me from the confines of the depraved

Church Humor


An apparent reminder to less
than zealous catholics to make
their Easter duties, the large sign 
at the church entrance read
in large letters with a play
on words: Keep yourself in
His mercy: Get your asshes here.
